The courier and delivery franchise was delighted to announce that MBE Worldwide has acquired Mail Boxes Etc. in order to establish a direct presence in the UK and Ireland.

According to a recent press release, “MBE Worldwide (“MBE”) has acquired Mail Boxes Etc. (UK) Limited (“MBE UK & Ireland”) from the former Master Licensee, adding the UK and Republic of Ireland to the existing community of ‘directly operated’ countries, comprising Italy, Spain, Germany, France, Poland, Portugal, US, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands. The total number of Service Centres operating under the Mail Boxes Etc. brand is 1,667, out of 2,800 global Service Centres in 53 countries worldwide.”

MBE Worldwide will operate under the complementary brand of Mail Boxes Etc., and the courier and delivery franchise’s industry-leading shipping, fulfillment, printing and marketing services will be undisturbed by the acquisition. In the words of Simon Cowie, Chairman of Mail Boxes Etc., “This is an exciting development for the MBE UK & Ireland franchise system. Combining forces with MBE Worldwide creates unique opportunities for synergy with our colleagues, harnessing their strong franchise-based experience to support our franchise network and grow our business in the UK & Ireland.”

Francis Laryea, Mail Boxes Etc.’s Managing Director, also spoke on the acquisition, expressing that it “demonstrates the MBE Worldwide commitment to growing the Mail Boxes Etc. brand and network of post, parcel and print centres across core European markets, at a time of trade disruption caused by the impact of Brexit, as well as the global COVID-19 pandemic”.

Plus, Paolo Fiorelli, Chairman and CEO of MBE Worldwide, said, “MBE UK & Ireland is an excellent addition to our directly operated countries because of its entrepreneur‐driven, people‐centric, customer‐first business model, which embodies our MBE business and culture. We welcome and are excited to work even more closely with the team, [working] to provide high‐value solutions to our business and consumer customers in the UK & Ireland market.” Find out more about franchising with the growing Mail Boxes Etc. network via the franchise’s profile page, linked above.
