Esquires Coffee opened their 27th UK franchise store on Guildford High Street on November 23rd 2016. The store is the 2nd site for Franchise Owner Chris Rance, who opened his first Esquires Coffee franchise in Buckingham in August of this year.
Esquires are excited to be establishing a presence in the historical and picturesque town of Guildford. Marketing Manager Kerry Noble explains, ‘Guildford’s rich history and charm is a perfect setting for Esquires Coffee. Esquires are looking to open up in unique and interesting locations; where the local people can feel at home with a cup of premium, fairtrade and organic coffee, without feeling like they are in a mainstream generic coffee chain.
