Esquires Coffee House – Yate
Offers in the region of £250,000
Franchise Resales are delighted to be able to offer for sale Esquires Coffee House Yate.
Since opening in 2017, Esquires Coffee in Yate has established an excellent reputation within the local area and is viewed by many as serving the best coffee in the area. The popularity of the store is reflected in the operating numbers and customer feedback. This business also holds a Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence.
In August the owner launched the 'Order at Table' functionality. This facility has proven to be a valuable addition and transactions using this medium are already 30% higher than those orders placed at the till. This is generating a dynamic growth in net turnover of between £1,000 and £1,500 per calendar month, further demonstrating the potential to grow this business.
During the lockdown, the current franchisee invested in the future of the business by installing screens across the length of the counter to ensure that the staff and customers are protected - following the guidelines implemented by the Government to the highest standard. The owner also invested in 4 heavy-duty gazebos, allowing customers to be seated outside no matter the weather.
This business recovered well from the lockdown and has experienced an increase in footfall and customer spend in the months since.
Situated within close proximity to other well-known high street stores, this busy cafe benefits from excellent footfall, generated from the retail environment.
The current owner is selling in order to retire. Providing a new franchisee with the opportunity to build upon the existing foundations and continue to grow this business.
Can you see yourself as the new owner of this already successful business?
Esquires was founded in 1993 with the goal of delivering amazing coffee, in modern environments and with remarkable service.
The first store opened in a suburb of Vancouver - the founders wanted to offer a defined brand, that was focused on fairness, integrity, passion, excellence, innovation, community, and sustainability.
Today, Esquires is a coffee brand with locations all around the world including the U.K, Ireland, Middle East, Asia, New Zealand and Australia.
Esquires Coffee Houses provide a place for people to meet, socialise and unwind with great coffee, great food and great service. The independent spirit and passionate desire to "keep it real" have helped the company grow to become a globally-recognised leader in the ethical coffee industry.
Esquires Coffee expanded to the U.K. in 2000 via master license arrangements in England, Ireland and Scotland, respectively. Whilst the company has experienced tremendous success, they work really hard to maintain a culture that values people and the planet we all share.
They continually strive to recycle and re-use whenever and wherever possible, and support ethical and sustainable business practices; ones that do not exploit people or harm our planet in the name of profit.
