Local Business Heroes - Maddison's

Run an independent local café, restaurant or canteen and have need of a reliable, fast and resourceful stockist of catering and janitorial items? Then look no further – Maddison’s is on the case (with a discount for Colchester Life cardholders, of course)!

Maddison’s are an independent non-food wholesalers, specialising in disposable catering and washroom products.  They supply business to business – mostly restaurants, schools, canteens and factories, and they love working with and helping independent local businesses and meeting like-minded people. 

Maddison’s started 21 years ago as a man in a van supplying to restaurants and cafes in the Colchester and Ipswich areas. It quickly grew and established a hard-earned reputation of a quality supplier offering excellent customer service.

Essex girl Michelle Mersh took over ownership and management of in 2008 after making a conscious life choice to move to a more rural location - she makes the most of our lovely local area with regular trips to Mersea, Dedham and the stunning Abberton Resevoir. (Or you might spot her dining in another Colchester Life favourite Il Padrino in town!)

At that time she also made a decision to run a business that would contribute to the local community and says it was Maddison’s strong customer service ethic that attracted her to the company. By ensuring she only hires staff who feel the same way, that customer focus has only grown stronger with time. She firmly believes that Maddison’s success is built on repeat business and isn’t about the initial sale but the ongoing service.

Maddison’s are happy to deliver, can accommodate last minute requests and have no minimum order (so even if you just run out of washing up liquid they’ll be on hand to save the day) and will take orders by whatever method is most convenient for you. They also store details of the stock your business prefers so you don’t have to search for that product code every time you order, and they will even remind you to order if it looks like you might be running low.

With competitive pricing and a flexible attitude you really can’t go wrong by giving Maddison’s a try, and… yes, you guessed it… if you’re a Colchester Life cardholder you can get a further 7% discount off your order price! Don’t say we don’t spoil you!
