Franchise Opportunities in Bury St Edmunds

More and more entrepreneurs are embracing the benefits of franchising and finding success in new markets. Investing in a franchise strikes a great balance between receiving the support you wouldn’t have access to as an independent startup and having the freedom to run your own business.

The coffee shop industry lends itself especially well to the franchise business model. The famously competitive market is much easier to navigate with the backing of an established brand, ensuring you can start enjoying the prosperity of your venture from the very start. If you want to develop a store in Bury St Edmunds, an Esquires franchise may just provide the ideal opportunity.

Why Open a Bury St Edmunds Coffee Shop?

Bury St Edmunds is a prominent town in Suffolk. It’s rich with 1,000 years of history and the picturesque sights of a modern market town. Known as the Jewel in the Crown of Suffolk, the town is characterised by scenic views, green spaces and a blend of impressive and quaint architecture.

With a population of over 40,000 residents, your coffee shop is in a good spot to attract a sizable customer base, with the chance to keep locals returning and contribute to your coffee-scented community hotspot! With several heritage sites like the cathedral, abbey gardens, regency playhouse and museum, there’s plenty to attract visitors from outside the town, too, and they’ll need a trusted spot where they can relax with a quality brew.

The town is also known as Suffolk’s Foodie Capital, thanks to a range of award-winning dining spots and eateries. This suggests an engaged food and drink-loving community that is keen for new, unbeatable foodie experiences, and will recognise a great cup of coffee when they come across it!

Investing With Esquires Coffee

The coffee chain market is set to continue growing over the next few years, so it’s a great time to turn your experience and enthusiasm to the industry. While it’s no secret that the coffee shop sector is incredibly competitive, investing in a franchise gives you the head start you need to start seeing how profitable the venture can be from the beginning.

The Esquires franchising team works closely with our franchise partners to ensure you go from strength to strength. When you partner with us, you’ll receive support in various areas, including site procurement and lease negotiation, marketing, staff training, product offerings and supplier contracts.

Since the very beginnings of our brand, we’ve been committed to prioritising Fairtrade, ethical coffee and independent-feel coffee shop experiences. We believe it’s this ethos that makes Esquires coffee stores so special.
