He says: “All our franchisees have a passion for the business and they are committed to delivering an extremely high level of service. A business background is preferable but not essential as we provide all the training required.”

Esquire Coffee Houses provides franchisees with a turnkey package provided by its franchise development team. The package ensures that franchisees have the necessary support in the start up stages of their new business and encompasses site selection and acquisition, planning, design, building, equipment, staff selection and ongoing training.
