Purchasing a resale from Mail Boxes Etc. (UK) Limited
MBE UK operates a limited number of pilot stores at any time. These tend to be franchises in key locations bought from departing franchisees, who have left the network due to illness or who were unsuited to franchise operation. These locations are carefully screened and the operation reviewed prior to resale. The track record for these stores is good. There have been 6 such resales in the last 10 years. Both sales profile and overhead structure vary widely in such cases, but the average sales performance of the six has been as follows:
Sales performance prior to take over by MBE UK £102k (excluding post);
Sales performance under new franchisees in 12 months ending December 2015 £191k (excluding post)
Currently resale opportunities are available in Manchester, Wolverhampton and Worcester.
