Esquires Coffee will soon open its doors in the centre of Leamington in central England.
The cafe franchise has secured a 10-year lease in a ground floor, 2,200 square-foot unit in the heart of the town. The location, 52-54 Warwick Street, used to house a Co-op store but will now be a long-term Esquires Coffee site.
Customers won’t have to wait long to get their hands on the franchise’s ethically sourced food and drink. The cafe is set to open before the year is out, adding to the brand’s network of 60 branches already up and running in the UK and Ireland.
The unit will employ nine people and start out by offering a takeaway service to adhere to government Covid-19 regulations. When rules are relaxed, the Esquires Coffee branch will incorporate dine-in options to allow customers to enjoy their orders inside the cafe.
Martin Brown, the owner of the new business, said,
"Leamington is a forward-looking and exciting town, whose residents are increasingly looking for both an ethical and fresh offering. We look forward to bringing excellent and consistent quality with a unique menu that will delight customers of all ages and tastes."
Commercial property consultants Wareing & Company secured the deal on behalf of the building’s landlords Hatchback Developments.
Jonathan Blood from property consultants Wareing & Company, which finalised the transaction, explained,
“Working on the go is becoming increasingly prevalent, and combined with the student population, I expect Esquires Coffee to really take off in Leamington over the coming years as a leading destination to study, work and socialise.
“Esquires Coffee is the second global firm that has committed to long-term investment in Leamington in as many months - with the other being European pizza chain Dodo Pizza - which is a brilliant vote of confidence in the town as the wider country looks to bounce back from the Coronavirus pandemic in 2021.”
