The story

MBE has kept growing throughout its history. The people at MBE's 2.600 current locations in 40 countries use our business concept to solve the needs of local businesses and consumers in the communities in which they live.

Founded in San Diego, California in 1980, Mail Boxes Etc. was introduced in Italy in 1993 by Graziano Fiorelli as Master licensee for the MBE brand. Since opening the pilot Center in 1992 the Italian MBE Network has grown to over 500 Centers. MBE Italy also subsequently acquired MBE Master Licenses rights for Spain, Germany and Austria.

In 2009, MBE Worldwide - a wholly owned subsidiary of the Italian Fiorelli family - acquired from MBE U.S. Inc., a subsidiary of UPS Inc., the Mail Boxes Etc. worldwide business (excluding the U.S. and Canada, which remain under MBE U.S. Inc.), including trademarks, business format and all existing Master Franchising contracts.  With the acquisition, MBE Worldwide became the sole owner of the Mail Boxes Etc. brand and franchisor of the MBE franchise system.

1993-2000
MBE Italy expanded to 300 MBE Centers and presence in 80% of Italian provinces thereby becoming the largest and most successful international MBE Master Licensee.

2000-2005
Master Licensees for Spain, Germany and Austria added to the portfolio. Network expansion increased to over 600 MBE Centers in the four European countries.

2005-2010
MBE Worldwide's acquistion of the MBE franchise system compliments ongoing expansion of network to ca. 1,370 MBE Centers in over 30 countries. Aggregated network turnover exceeds € 330 Million.

2010-2015
MBE Italy celebrates 20 year anniversary.  MBE product and services portfolio expands via e-commerce sales of shipping, graphic and print, printer accessories (cartridges/toner under the brand name “MBEPrint”), photographic and office products.

2016
Mail Boxes Etc. grows to more than 1,600 locations on four continents. Aggregated network revenues top € 400 million.

April 2017
Mail Boxes Etc. Worldwide has completed the acquisition of 100% of PostNet (www.postnet.com). Both companies currently operate in the business services industry offering premium quality shipping, logistics, printing, communication and postal services. The two companies will have an extensive reach of more than 2.300 locations in 33 countries.

Oktober 2017
MBE Worldwide with 2,300 locations globally, including PostNet acquisition in April 2017, acquired AlphaGraphics, Inc. (“AlphaGraphics”), a leading design, printing, marketing and communications retail system. Following this acquisition, MBE Worldwide’s global network now encompasses more than 2.600 global business service centers.

Mail Boxes Etc./MBE Centers are operated by independent operators as franchisees, who operate under a franchise agreement under the brand name of MBE. Through its franchise network Mail Boxes Etc. provides support services for businesses and individuals. Logistics and shipping services represent the main services of MBE – enabled by MBE through contractual agreements concluded for the benefit of its franchisees with the main national and international express couriers - and other graphics and printing services - provided either directly or on the basis of agreements with large printing centers. The promotion of services for business and private customers is carried out in the framework of the business activity of each MBE franchise partner within and outside of the MBE Centers ("farming").
