Coffee and Caribbean Cuisine Hit Dewsbury from Start Up Support

09 July 2015 00:00


Neville Morris had the dream to bring the taste of the Caribbean to Dewsbury. After over 20 years working in sales, he put his passion for good food and coffee to work, and with help from the Business Enterprise Fund and the Start Up Loans Company, Novo Coffee House was born.

The café has now been successfully trading since September 2014 and Neville is enjoying being his own boss for the first time. After gaining qualifications from Kirklees College, Neville found an ideal space in the centre of Dewsbury where he serves flagship coffee and food inspired from around the world.

The smell of freshly baked bread entices customers who enjoy the ‘coffee lovers atmosphere’ while light bites are ready to go for commuters on the move.

“The shop’s doing really well, it’s thriving. We get around 200 people in a day and at least 180 cups of coffee” he said.

The Business Enterprise Fund and Start Up Loans Company are there to help make your business dreams a reality. Find out more today:
