Who are we?

Esquires Coffee is a global brand known for providing high-quality coffee, delicious fresh food and exceptional customer service. Originating in Vancouver in 1993 and now owned by Cooks Coffee Company, a publicly listed company on the New Zealand and Aquis Stock Exchange in London, we have a global network of stores, with locations across the UK, Europe, Asia and The Middle East.

At Esquires, we place a strong emphasis on sustainability, 100% organic and Fairtrade coffee and responsible sourcing practices. All of our coffee is grown by Fairtrade farmers as part of the forest and existing ecosystem, and we demonstrate our commitment to sustainability by partnering with the first coffee roastery in the world to achieve the Carbon Neutral Gold Standard.

Esquires storefront

To further support green initiatives, we have implemented the use of recyclable and compostable coffee cups, recyclable takeaway boxes and bags, serviettes and straws to reduce the amount of single-use plastic in our business.

Our UK stores are developed using a regional developer system, leveraging local knowledge to select the best locations and prospective franchisees. We take great care in choosing the right franchisees and provide comprehensive training to ensure they can deliver warm and welcoming café experiences to their local communities.

Why franchise with Esquires Coffee?

The UK coffee shop market is currently valued at £4.8 billion, and over the last 12 months, it has experienced impressive sales growth of 11.9%. Given that 62% of consumers prioritise sustainability and ethical coffee sourcing, now is an excellent opportunity to invest in an Esquires Coffee franchise.

Currently, we operate 50+ stores in the UK, with 8 new stores set to launch in the next quarter. Our long-term goal is to expand strategically and potentially double the number of stores within the next three years while maintaining our emphasis on sustainable and responsible sourcing practices, high-quality products and excellent customer service.

The Opportunity

We’ve been honing our craft for years, so we are well acquainted with the coffee market’s many ins and outs. We pass on that valuable knowledge to our franchisees, helping them to flourish.

As an Esquires Coffee franchisee, you’ll be part of a well-established brand that values being part of the local community. You’ll benefit from our chain’s buying power and customer loyalty. By operating as a franchisee, you’ll have our full training and ongoing support whenever you want. It means that while you will be working for yourself and running your Esquires Coffee branch, you’ll never be on your own, no matter how big (or small) the challenge before you.
