Lightspeed London

As one of Europe’s major business hubs, home to a dynamic startup community and world-class talent, London was an obvious choice when we were looking to continue our international expansion. Lightspeed London is one of the newest additions to the Lightspeed family. We opened its doors in May 2015.

Located in the vibrant borough of Southwark, our office is next to many of London’s most popular attractions including London Bridge and Shakespeare’s Globe. It’s right on the doorstep of London’s best-known and much-loved food market, Borough Market. Although the area’s rich history and heavenly food weren’t the only things that brought us here. Scattered with many of the city’s co-working spaces and pop-up shops, Southwark is a hub for entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation – values at the very core of our business.

Lightspeed London is proud to offer independent businesses – the life and soul of the UK’s capital city – the retail and restaurant management tools they need to turn their ambitions into a real-life success story.

OUR CUSTOMERS

Oliveology

Nestled within London’s historic Borough Market, Marianna Kolokotroni’s Oliveology offers a range of organic traditional Greek products sourced from the owner’s very own farm in Greece. Olive oil, olives, honey and tea are just some of the treats on offer.

Before Marianna began using Lightspeed Retail, she struggled to track store performance and handle her growing inventory. Now she has full control of her business, from stock to sales, wherever she is. She also benefits from having a POS provider located just around the corner!

“I have no idea how traders manage to cope without Lightspeed. I could never go back!” – Marianna Kolokotroni, Owner

Niche

Based in London’s trendy Islington, Niche is a bakery by day and a restaurant by night. This restaurant-bakery hybrid offers hot drinks and gluten-free treats to customers, who can choose to dine in or takeaway.

With the help of Lightspeed Restaurant, this innovative establishment only needs one management system to manage both the bakery and restaurant. This makes it easy for the entire Niche team to transition from day service to evening and save precious time.

“Lightspeed were the sole providers who offered the takeaway and restaurant options combined at a sensible price.” – Adrian Morgan, Owner

Gazette

Londoners visit the Gazette to get an authentic taste of a French bistro without having to cross the channel. The menu includes some of France’s favourite dishes such as moules marinières and croque monsieur , and some quality French wines.

Gazette needed a cloud-based point of sale that would make it easier to manage its three London locations. Since the bistro began using Lightspeed Restaurant, Gazette has managed to speed up service and enhance the customer experience.

“This is the sort of system that any business in any city could benefit from, but specifically London.” – Walter Lecocq, Owner
