“Franchising is a great way of being in business for yourself – but without being on your own. I have had fantastic training and support and it’s reassuring to know that there is always someone who can help, which is especially important in the early days.” – Daniel, MBE Milton Keynes

Make money from multiple sources

With the huge range of diverse services, you can offer as an MBE franchisee, you’ll never be reliant on just one source of income.

  • Packing, postage & shipping
  • Logistical solutions for businesses
  • Virtual mail boxes & addresses
  • Printing & Copying
  • Graphic Design & Marketing Services

Enjoy owning a robust and resilient business that is ready for anything!

“With Mail Boxes Etc. you can change and develop with the economy and the business. It’s not centred on just one product or service; it’s a multi-faceted and a much more interesting business to work in.” – Steve, MBE franchise owner in Ipswich & Colchester

Multiple Franchise Options

An MBE franchise offers you a variety of routes to success:

  • Open your own MBE Centre in a new town or city location
  • Add an MBE Centre as a “bolt-on” to enhance and diversify your existing business
  • Purchase an established trading Centre franchise which is already set up & running
  • Become a multiple Centre owner

Whatever route you choose, our tried and tested business model is a real recipe for success.


Exact start-up costs depend on location, size and other property factors, as well as equipment specifications – however the initial investment usually ranges from £60-70,000.

However, with multiple finance options to choose from, and our excellent relationship with major banks, your personal investment could be as little as £25,000.

Return & Rewards

Turnover (for a mature MBE Centre) varies between £100,000 and £500,000 per year, with most stores aiming for a 65% gross margin.

Starting or growing your own business could be easier than you think – especially with a Mail Boxes Etc. franchise.
