The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc. Expand to 6,000 Worldwide Locations - Shipping and Business Services Retail Chain Committed to Future Growth

In 1980, Mail Boxes Etc., Inc. (MBE) opened its first location in southern California. Nearly 30 years later, The UPS Store® and Mail Boxes Etc.® network has expanded to 6,000 locations worldwide, a milestone that underscores the chain's status as the world's largest and fastest-growing shipping and business services outlet.

Press Release

"The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc. network is 25 percent larger today than it was five years ago and we remain committed to continuing the growth and development of our brands around the world," said Stuart Mathis, president of MBE, franchisor of The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc. brands.

What started as an alternative to the post office is now one of the world's largest retail outlets, standing nearly one-and-a-half times larger than all of its competitors combined and covering more than 30 countries and territories. Entrepreneur magazine recently ranked The UPS Store and Mail Boxes Etc. as the No. 8 franchise opportunity in its 30th Annual "Franchise 500" and has consistently ranked it as the top postal and business services franchise for the last 19 years.

"We attribute our growth to the power and commitment of our franchisees and master licensees, who are building our brands worldwide," added Mathis. "Through their vision and actions, they create entrepreneurial opportunities for individuals around the world. Furthermore, I believe our global growth is a testament to the strength and adaptability of our franchising concept: a one-stop business services center."

In recent years, the organization's international growth has remained on pace with its domestic growth. Just over the past year, such milestones occurred as the celebration of the 500th location in Italy as well as 100 locations in Germany and the opening of the first center in Russia.
