Middleton Guardian - - FRONT PAGE -

A 27-YEAR-OLD Mid­dle­ton busi­ness­man who owns two com­pa­nies in the town is up for a Rochdale Busi­ness Award.

Daniel Coyne, of Ull­swa­ter Drive, Lan­g­ley, runs The Milk Barn on Foun­tain Street, Mid­dle­ton, and Lean & Green in Mid­dle­ton Shop­ping Cen­tre.

The health foods fan, who has a de­gree in in­ter­na­tional busi­ness from Manch­ester Met­ro­pol­i­tan Univer­sity, has been nom­i­nated for Busi­nessper­son of the Year by Mid­dle­ton Town Cen­tre Man­age­ment.

Daniel, who says he has put in ‘a lot of hard work’, started out by set­ting up a tat­too shop with a friend when he fin­ished univer­sity, hav­ing de­cided that an of­fice job was not for him.

He said: I’ve al­ways wanted to set up on my own. I got near the end of my de­gree and I just knew I couldn’t sit at a desk all day.”

Daniel now runs the two busi­nesses, The Milk Barn, of­fer­ing milk­shakes, smooth­ies, juices and healthy food, and Lean & Green salad bar

He said: “It was nice to be nom­i­nated, to be recog­nised. I’m told Mid­dle­ton has never been nom­i­nated or won any­thing at the awards, so I’m happy that I’ve put the town on the map.”

The awards win­ners will be an­nounced on No­vem­ber 9.
