Our Story

From Humble Beginnings To Coffee Extraordinaires

It all began in 1993, Delta, British Columbia, when two entrepreneurial business graduates started on their mission to serve delicious coffee to their community.

Cut to present day, and the brand is still doing just that! From one successful coffee shop to a family of worldwide stores, Esquires has become a globally-recognised leader in the ethical coffee industry.

Esquires Journey With Cooks Coffee Company

Our success is in no small part thanks to Cooks Coffee Company, an internationally recognised chain that specialises in helping an ever-growing family of brands serve premium coffee and a complementary range of food.

Cooks Coffee acquired the global rights to Esquires in 2013 due to similar values based on maintaining a culture that values people and the planet we share, always prioritising ethical and sustainable business practices.

Cooks Coffee Company invests in opportunities that span the globe. However, despite a wide-reaching presence, Cooks Coffee and Esquires recognise the value in providing cosy café experiences for local communities, focusing on the UK and Ireland in particular.

As the Esquires coffee franchise brand continues to grow, so too does our appreciation of great coffee and the loyalty of our customers around the world.
