Its goal is to open 14 new franchisees in the UK and Ireland this year
The specialist business services franchise has set itself the goal of opening 14 new franchise opportunities in the UK and Ireland this year, following the continuing growth of the network and its increasing overall profitability in 2013.
Mail Boxes Etc’s first British store opened in Marylebone, London 22 years ago and, following sustained development over two decades, there are now 143 outlets across the UK and Ireland.
FRANCHISES FOR SALE
Interest in the franchise from prospective franchisees is at a record level and MBE is keen to meet bright and enthusiastic people who can help satisfy the demand for its wide range of business services.
“There are many areas across the country that could benefit from a Mail Boxes Etc store,” Mike Hawkins, the company’s sales and marketing director says. “We want to tell people about the opportunities we can offer them to build their own businesses in a growing economy.
“Our services are very much in demand - everything from expert packing and shipping to mail box rental and postal services - so we need energetic people with drive, determination and enthusiasm to join our nationwide network, which we plan to grow to 250 stores by 2022.”
Hawkins adds: “No previous experience is required of any aspect of our business because everything is covered by MBE’s comprehensive training programme. The most important thing is to be sure prospective franchisees are right for us and that they feel we are right for them.
“A franchisee’s will and determination, combined with our knowledge and training, will soon get their new business up and running.”
