Our Story

Esquires Coffee was founded with the goal of delivering amazing coffee, in cool environments, and with remarkable service. Our independent spirit and passionate desire to “keep it real” have helped the company grow from one little shop in Delta, British Columbia, to a globally-recognised leader in the ethical coffee industry.

Whilst the company has experienced tremendous success, we work really hard to maintain a culture that values people and the planet we all share. We strive to recycle and re-use whenever and wherever possible, and we support ethical and sustainable business practices; ones that do not exploit people or harm our planet in the name of profit.

If this sounds like the type of company you’d like to support, then by all means pop into one of our shops. If it sounds like something you’d like to be a larger part of, then check out our franchise page, contact us for more information, and let’s see where things go.

Great Coffee Helps

U.K and Ireland Expansion

Esquires Coffee expanded to the U.K. and Europe in 2000 via master license arrangements in England, Ireland and Scotland, respectively.  Our master license holders did a great job of establishing Esquires as a place for great coffee and remarkable service, which set a fantastic foundation for the brand. The master license holder’s expanded the chain through franchising, which has proven to be an incredibly successful approach in both regions.

Today, Esquires is a fast charging coffee brand in the U.K. and Ireland. We’ve been referred to as ‘honest’, ’quirky’, and ‘indie’, which feels really great. We’ve been called the ‘next big thing’, which is really nice too.  No matter what you call us, we are going to continue to work hard to build a special company, serving amazing, fairly traded and organic products, in super cool environments, and with great service.
