Franchising is a great way to start a business without having to go it alone. When you invest in an established franchise like Esquires Coffee, you’re essentially entering a partnership; one where you have the chance to open your own business with the power of a much-loved brand at your back.
There are plenty of benefits from investing in the Esquires Coffee franchise, including the use of a proven business model, a much higher success rate, and all the support you could need in your new business venture.
So, what does it mean to join a franchise like Esquires Coffee?
What to Expect as an Esquires Franchisee?

Use of the Esquires Décor
They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, and we couldn’t agree more! That’s why every one of our franchisees is encouraged to utilise our comfy and rustic décor for the perfect Esquires vibe.
While we have a comprehensive brand image, we still strive for each of our coffee shops to embrace that independent feel. We work closely with our franchisees to ensure each store has that independent look while still remaining recognisable to customers as the brand they know and love.
We’ve been called many things over the years — honest, quirky, and indie being only a select few — and your coffee shop design can be a part of that legacy.
Help with Building Connections
Everyone knows one of the pillars of a successful business is the connections you make along the way. Unfortunately, this can also be incredibly challenging.
Thankfully for all Esquires franchisees, we’ve done some of the legwork for you! As the owner of an Esquires coffee shop, you’ll already have several favourable contracts with suppliers.
Plus, as part of the Esquires family, you’ll also be able to build your own network of like-minded entrepreneurs who have taken the plunge and become a franchisee themselves.
But don’t just take our word for it. You can read all about what it’s like to be part of the Esquires family in our interview with Martin, an Esquires franchisee who owns not one, but two Esquire’s coffee shops in the Midlands.

In particular, we appeal to entrepreneurs who are looking for the feeling of running an independent coffee shop while still receiving all the support from those who know the market inside and out.
