Do you want to open a Mail Boxes Etc. franchise in your territory? From the initial get-to-know-each-other phase to the customized development of your business plan, to the training activities leading up to the store launch: throughout the entire affiliation process Mail Boxes is right there beside you, step-by-step.
1. Getting to know each other
Fill out the confidential application and send it to Mail Boxes Etc. so the team of MBE Worldwide can get to know you and assess your aptitude and qualifications. Afterwards, you will be sent more extensive information on the Mail Boxes Etc. business concept and affiliation opportunities.
Qualified candidates will be contacted by Mail Boxes Etc. and receive more detailed specifications.
2. Discovery Day
The most qualified applicants will be invited to attend a one day meeting at Mail Boxes Etc. Caribbean headquarters in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. This meeting is of fundamental importance and act as the first step for gaining extensive knowledge of the Mail Boxes Etc. business model and the chance to become a Master Licensee.
3. Develop a business plan
With the support of MBE Caribbean, applicants will evaluate all economic, financial, sales and marketing factors, in addition to drafting a preliminary business plan.
After having met several Franchisees who will have shared their own experiences, applicants will be contacted by a Mail Boxes Etc. representative to further discuss their business plan and the franchise contract.
4. Submittal of Business Plan, Financials and LOI
A board made up of several Master Licensees will examine all aspects related to each application and decide whether to approve it.
Once the board’s approval has been granted, the applicant and MBE Worldwide will sign a preliminary agreement.
5. Franchise Agreement
A franchise contract will then be drawn up, stipulating the agreement reached between the applicant and Mail Boxes Etc., and the franchise license fee must be paid to MBE Caribbean.
6. Training and Business Launch
The Franchisee will attend an intensive 4-week training course at MBE Caribbean headquarters in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Then, once the training and center buildout are complete you are open for business
