Who is and what does Mail Boxes Etc.
Mail Boxes Etc. was founded in 1980 in San Diego, California and, the first pilot center in Italy was born in 1993 in Milan, after the acquisition of the MBE brand by Graziano Fiorelli. From 1993 to today, the network has reached more than 500 Service Centers in Italy and over 2,500 Centers in 44 countries thanks to the acquisition, in 2017, of two American companies with similar offers: AlphaGraphics and PostNet.
Mail Boxes Etc. is one of the major Franchising Service Centers that deals with printing, communications, shipping, graphics, micro-logistics for both companies and individuals. In particular, the MBE centers are managed by independent entrepreneurs who are constantly supported by a team of experts, in order to offer their customers, mainly composed of small and medium-sized companies, a support for the development of their business.
Open an MBE Franchise: the new discounts provided
On the occasion of the 33rd Salone Franchising Milano, MBE will announce a new agreement with Banco BPM that will give the opportunity to those who intend to open an MBE Service Center to be able to request subsidized loans to start the business. Thanks to this agreement, it will be possible to request funding at favorable conditions to open a Service Center as well as having the possibility to contact the bank and have an appointment in which solutions will be proposed with reference to the arrangements agreed between the bank and MBE. This type of product is called Flexible Unsecured Loan and will meet the needs of MBE franchisees through customized solutions that can be summarized, for example, in the structure of the amortization plan, the installments and the day of the month in which to charge them.
” Thanks to the agreement with Banco BPM, the MBE Franchisee can apply, on favorable conditions, of financing products deemed suitable for the financial support of the investments related to the Service Centers of our Network. They will also have the opportunity to contact the bank directly and quickly get an appointment with the most convenient branch, where they will present the various possible solutions based on the specific arrangements agreed between MBE and the bank “, explains Fabrizio Mantovani, Business Development & Support Director MBE.
In addition to this new agreement, Mail Boxes Etc. had previously signed other agreements to support both the already operational Centers and the new affiliates, which involved facilitated loans with an unsecured loan and with Grenke , a product that allows affiliated entrepreneurs to be able to rent the assets for the preparation of the Center instead of buying them. Also, on this occasion we will be presented the development plans throughout the country as well as the characteristics of Franchising Mail Boxes Etc .
