Esquires Coffee Houses offers 3 business models to ensure an appropriate design is established to suit the location:
"We chose a café business because we felt that would really suit our strengths in customer service and organisation, then a franchise because they could provide the expertise we lacked. Then I interviewed a few franchisors and Esquires stood out. The team there understand that franchisees are in business to make money too. They have a deep understanding of the intricacies of the business themselves as they spent years perfecting the system before opening the franchise up. All that gave us confidence that we would make it work – and we have." Gary and Michelle Macilwee, Esquires Coffee House - Tauranga Bayfair Mall.
