Jose Vela, our CEO, first learned of MBE while attending college. As a student he frequented the MBE Center across the college campus main entrance. He would use MBE’s printing services for his papers and projects and at the end of the school year ship all his books back home to the Dominican Republic. After finishing college Jose was interested in starting his own business and decided that acquiring a franchise was the way to go since franchises provide a strong support network while providing the entrepreneurial freedom to experience running your own business.
After learning more about the MBE business model, Jose realized there was a high demand for premium business service solutions at a competitive price in the Dominican Republic. Jose and his partners purchased the MBE Master License for the Dominican Republic and Haiti in 2000 becoming the youngest MBE Master Licensee at the time. After completing the training process, Jose opened the MBE Dominican Republic Pilot Center in 2001. In 2015 MBE DR acquired the Master License for the English speaking Caribbean (14 countries). Today MBE Caribbean has 17 Centers and is growing faster than ever!
The management team, many of who have been with MBE Caribbean since its early years, is made up of hard working, entrepreneurial minded professionals, who combined have over 50 years of management experience.
