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
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.
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.
