“The backing and support from FW Capital has been great. They has been very helpful and gone that extra mile to get the funding over the line.”

Thasos Michael, Owner, Michaels Coffee House

Michaels Coffee House were able to expand after receiving a six-figure investment from NPIF – FW Capital Debt Finance, as part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

Opened in August 2017, Michaels Coffee House is an independent café located in the Royal Exchange Arcade in the heart of Manchester’s shopping district. 

The business is owned by Thasos Michael and offers organically grown, high-quality, locally roasted, single origin and Rainforest Alliance certified coffee beans, along with a variety of contemporary beverages and homemade food. 

The business has enjoyed impressive growth and sought funding to support the next stage of its development.

The first NPIF investment phase has now completed with the British Business Bank launching the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund II in March 2024.
