Neville Lyons on the remarkable story of his relative Joseph Lyons, who out of humble beginnings created the world’s first ‘food empire’.
The presentation, with archival photos, will take you from 1887 to the 1990s, beginning when Joe Lyons co-founded a company to sort out the indifferent catering at national exhibition halls of the late Victorian era.
Though a born entrepreneur, Joe had no previous experience of the catering industry. From small beginnings, the company progressed into catering for the general public and the rest, as they say, is history!
