The collaboration model used by Angry Catfish, Mend Provisions, Northern Coffeeworks, and Northern Frameworks powers the Minneapolis cycling community and helps the collective better achieve its sustainability goals.
In 2010 Angry Catfish Bicycle Shop + Coffee Bar (ACF) opened to accolades amongst its local patrons and followers across the country with a simple concept to provide the best bicycles, coffee, and environment to enjoy them possible. Not long after the launch of ACF Mend Provisions, a lifestyle fly fishing, men's apparel, and outdoor goods brand was created and opened around the corner from ACF. Mend was followed by Northern Frameworks the in-house frame/bicycle company to Angry Catfish allowing a curated, tailor-made bicycle experience with in the brick and mortar retail establishment in South Minneapolis. Finally in 2017 Northern Coffeeworks took an already refined third wave coffee model offered at ACF and added locally sourced food and beverage in a Minneapolis Downtown East setting. The teams of all four businesses not only work together, but also eat, drink, and play together and with their community at large. Check out their awesome video to see what they're about. See you out there!
