The business idea

The first Mail Boxes Etc. store was opened in the United States, in 1980.

The underlying idea was simple, yet innovative: to provide postal, communication and business support services to companies and consumers by offering effective, affordable solutions.

The Mail Boxes Etc. concept proved to be a big hit with clients and the franchising business format paved the way for new opportunities for thousands of business people and families.

A number of things have changed since then.

The latest advances in technology and globalization have reshaped companies and the way they do business. Demographic shifts and lifestyle changes have impacted consumer behavior the world over. Increasingly more often, companies and individuals are choosing to outsource important business activities. This choice is driven by two deciding factors: guaranteed high quality and the chance to save time.

Mail Boxes Etc. adapts and customizes its products and services to deliver solutions able to satisfy the specific needs of all its clients: small and medium-sized companies, freelance professionals and consumers.

Thirty years of experience and thousands of MBE stores in over 30 countries is concrete proof the Mail Boxes Etc. concept can be adapted to a variety of cultural and economical contexts.

Mail Boxes Etc. is a success story. Let it become your success story!
