Financial Information

The investment

Our franchise system provides a complete turnkey operation. Allowance has been made in the start-up costs for all franchise fees, training, assistance with site selection, shop-fitting expenses, legal fees, equipment, supplies and inventory.

Your exact start-up costs will vary depending on the location, size and other property factors and the equipment specification, but the initial investment to open a Mail Boxes Etc. store ranges from around £60,000 to £70,000. Up to 70% of this cost can be funded by a loan from a high-street bank (subject to status). Your initial personal investment could be as little as £25,000.

Mail Boxes Etc. works with finance houses and enterprise finance schemes to help you secure funding for your business.

The rewards

Turnover for mature Mail Boxes Etc. stores generally varies between £100,000 and £500,000 a year, with most stores aiming for a 65% gross margin.

We also run a scheme where a referral fee is paid to our current franchisees who recommend a friend or colleague who goes on to purchase an MBE franchise.
