About Esquires Coffee Houses

EsquiresCompany Overview

Esquires Coffee is a global franchised coffee chain, serving 100% Fairtrade and organic coffee. The brand was established in Canada in 1993 with the defined brand focus on fairness, integrity, community, excellence and innovation. These guiding principles have been the backbone of our company as we have grown into markets in the Middle East, China, New Zealand and Australia.

Esquires Coffee UK was acquired by Cooks Global Foods in 2013, a publicly-listed company on the New Zealand Stock Exchange. Esquires Coffee currently has 24 stores in the UK.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

EsquiresOur most successful franchisees are very ‘hands-on’ which can comprise taking orders, beverage and food preparation, clearing and cleaning tables – leading by example for exemplary customer service. 

In addition time must be given to stock control – ordering and day-to-day operational management. Staff management and motivation is an important job function, as is marketing to increase daily transactions and maintain customer loyalty.
