Mail Boxes Etc. is shortlisted for top franchise award

Mail Boxes Etc. is excited to be a finalist in the prestigious 2014 bfa (British Franchising Association) Franchisor of the Year Awards.

Recruitment logo_Finalist.jpgNow in its 25th year, the awards celebrate the country’s most exceptional franchisors, who are driving business growth and development through their strength of brand, innovative practices and effective business strategies.

Mail Boxes Etc. is one of three finalists in the brand new Franchisee Recruitment Award category, which recognises the focus and energy that goes into ensuring the company attracts the right kind of franchisee and provides them with the support, help and advice they need during the all-important start-up phase.
Said Rachel Perry, Franchise Development Executive at Mail Boxes Etc.: “With a 21-year history and 140 one-stop high street stores across the UK, ours is a tried and tested franchise system and a well-respected brand within the franchising community.

“We’re honoured that our best-practice recruitment processes and the support we provide to new franchisees have been recognised by the bfa. 2012/13 saw an overhaul of our recruitment programme with renewed focus on both our web portal and face-to-face recruitment via bfa exhibitions and seminars.

In anticipation of increased interest, we also restructured our head office team and implemented a new business management system. The result of these integrated measures was a 50% growth in franchise sales in just six months.

“Our franchisees are passionate about the MBE brand and the promise of excellence in our four core business areas of UK and international shipping, printing, mailbox rental and stationery. We’re all looking forward to the announcement of the category winners at the awards ceremony on 26 June at Heythrop Park Resort in Oxfordshire.”

Discovery Days

I would like to attend a Mail Boxes Etc. Discovery Day. What are Discovery Days?

Many franchisors hold Discovery Days for potential franchisees to give them an opportunity to find out more about the franchise in an informal, no-obligation setting. During a Discovery Day, which is usually held at the corporate headquarters, the company explains the operation of the business, the product or service it provides, the training and support systems, and the financial investment. There is also an opportunity to meet members of the corporate franchise team and, in some cases, existing franchisees in the network. The company itself uses the occasion to gain first impressions of prospective franchisees and to informally assess their suitability for the business.

Which date/location are you interested in attending?
