We needed to think creatively to secure alternative funding. Neil gave us such great advice and all our accountancy work now goes through Bennett Verby.

Peter Gibson, Owner, Grindsmith


Grindsmith founders Luke Tomlinson and Pete Gibson began in 2013 with an idea, and a Kickstarter campaign that helped fund their first site, a 5 x 3m wooden pod on Greengate Square. Soon after, their coffee trike appeared – a portable brewbar. This was swiftly followed by a Hub on Deansgate, which blends perfectly a larger working/meeting space and a coffee shop, as well as being their first site to offer something a little stronger into the evenings.

Grindsmith’s latest site is Media City, which contains a full kitchen offering breakfast, brunch and lunch, and a full cocktail, beer and wine menu, as well as their usual great coffee.

Grindsmith Coffee recently embarked on its latest venture – converting an industrial unit into a brand-new Roastery and Laboratory. They also announced plans to become the first speciality coffee shop in Manchester to ditch single-use plastics and go takeaway cup-free.
