Founded in 1993 in Vancouver, Esquires Coffee Houses has grown into a thriving brand with a presence in New Zealand, Fiji, Ireland and North America.
The first New Zealand store opened in May 2002 and quickly became the fastest growing coffee house franchise in New Zealand. After 13 years of customers seeing the Esquires Coffee House brand, Esquires decided it was time for a change and has recently launched the new ESQ brand which now sets the standard in delivering a fresh made in-store food offer and an improved Organic Fairtrade Coffee flavour for our loyal and new customers.
In late 2015, Esquires was purchased by Café Coffee & Bakery Systems (NZ) Limited who have already completed 7 refurbishments to the ESQ brand with more planned in 2017. With 23 stores currently situated throughout the country and more openings planned. (As of January 2018). Esquires is consistently striving to provide our customers with the highest quality Organic Fairtrade coffee, fresh made-in-store food options and a relaxing atmosphere in every café.
In today’s busy world, people are finding themselves looking towards relaxing environments away from home to fulfill their coffee needs so, we focus on providing those people with what they want and deserve - a vibrant, friendly environment committed to quality and value. Our stores are designed with you in mind. We recognise that our customers are discerning people who expect a lot both in terms of the product they buy and the environment in which it is delivered.
