A hat trick for Mail Boxes Etc.

Mail Boxes Etc. have scored a hat trick this month. Not just one but three new franchisees have opened their own Mail Boxes Etc. stores this month. Imran Naveed, Ahmad Nawaz and Louis Owens are all proud new owners of their very own businesses in London – Stratford, Welwyn Garden City and Lewisham.

MBE store front 2.jpgImran is completely new to the business and is looking forward to getting stuck into his new venture. Ahmad, who was already an employee in a Mail Boxes Etc. store, is hoping to use his existing knowledge of the business to build his own successful store and Louis, formerly a serving member of the Royal Navy in logistics, is enjoying transferring his skills from Navy logistics, to a slightly different form of logistics, in everyday worldwide document and parcel delivery.

Mail Boxes Etc. is one of the world’s largest non-food retail franchises with over 1,500 stores in five continents including over 150 in the UK and Ireland. They are the only high-street chain that offers consumers and local companies a truly comprehensive range of business services. Their high-street, one-stop-shop concept offers a mix of logistics, postal, print and copy services to help meet people’s everyday needs.

“Mail Boxes Etc. was a great opportunity for me because it fit with my existing skillset and you get great support behind you when setting up your business. The support from the team at Mail Boxes Etc. has been brilliant. The biggest thing they did for me was to negotiate the lease of my store. I want to be hands-on in my business so even if I employ more staff I’ll still be heavily involved in the business. It will just mean that I have more opportunity to go out and get more business,” explains Imran.

As a successful global brand, Mail Boxes Etc. have learned what it takes to keep ahead in the retail sector and they’re sharing this knowledge with each and every one of their franchisees. With multiple revenue streams, franchisees benefit from a high-street brand that has dominated in its marketplace for 35 years and their longest-serving franchisee in the UK network has just celebrated 21 years!

“I was already working for Mail Boxes Etc. when I decided to become a franchisee. I knew that I had a lot of experience in the business and knew it would be an easy transition to become a franchisee. When you become a franchisee you are given much more responsibility and you have to come up with your own solutions to problems rather than having someone tell you how to do things. My business is going well so far and there’s always someone on the end of the phone at head office if I ever need any help. My plans for the future of my business are to make this store as successful as possible and look at opening more stores in the future,” adds Ahmad.

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?
