Mail Boxes Etc. innovate to stay ahead

26 October 2015

Mail Boxes Etc. have expanded their business offering in order to support franchisee sales across the network. The brand new Business Hub provides small businesses and SMEs with the services they need all in one place.

By grouping everything into the business hub, businesses are more likely to find the services and extra elements they didn’t know about. Now that they’re easier to find, businesses are much more likely to use them.

Mail Boxes Etc. are constantly looking for ways to innovate and tap into new markets to keep providing their franchisees with the most up to date and competitive services. With the Business Hub service in place, franchisees can reach an even larger and more varied customer base.

Mail Boxes Etc. is one of the world’s largest non-food retail franchises with over 1,500 stores in five continents including over 155 in the UK and Ireland. They are the only high-street chain that offers consumers and local companies a truly comprehensive range of business services. Their high street one-stop-shop concept offers a mix of logistics, postal, print and copy services to help meet people’s every day needs.

The new Business Hub service provided by Mail Boxes Etc. franchisees includes:

- Document and parcel delivery, specialist ‘pack and ship’
- Post, direct mail and product fulfilment
- Graphic design, print, copy, finishing, Ordnance Survey mapping
- Mailbox rental, virtual and registered office addresses, telephone answering
- Office supplies, shredding and data destruction.

Mail Boxes Etc. already offer these services and so much more but by packaging them into one service specifically for business, they widen their remit and reach a much larger customer base.

“We know that to stay ahead of the market and the competition, our franchisees need to have a range of services on offer that they can offer to a wide customer base. The services we have on offer at Mail Boxes Etc. ensure that our franchisees businesses are strong and can weather tough economic conditions, changes and market fluctuations. Our Business Hub opens the business out to so many more people, explains Michael Hawkins, Sales and Marketing Director at Mail Boxes Etc.

As a successful global brand, Mail Boxes Etc. have learned what it takes to keep ahead in the retail sector and they’re sharing this knowledge with each and every one of their franchisees. With multiple revenue streams, franchisees benefit from a trusted high-street brand that has dominated in its marketplace for 35 years and the longest serving franchisee in the UK network has just celebrated 21 years!
