F.A.Q. MBE Franchising

Franchising is an efficient distribution system which offers owners of small businesses the opportunity to be competitive, grow and prosper through the economies-of-scale typical of larger companies combined with the commitment and drive of entrepreneurs.

The commercial affiliation (franchise) is a contract between two legal entities (franchisee and franchisor), economically and legally independent, whereby the franchisor grants the franchisee the availability, in exchange of a fee, to use trademarks, signs, know-how, and to get assistance or technical and commercial advice, inserting the franchisee in a system consisting of a network of affiliates on the territory, in order to market certain goods or services (Italian Law n. 129 May 6, 2004).

A franchise or affiliate is a legal entity, financially and legally independent, who signs the franchise agreement.

Starting any business requires initial capital and ongoing working capital. This may be obtained from any combination of private fund, loans, grants, subsidies or other resources. Mail Boxes Etc. helps the prospect to define the correct capital structure which best matches your individual circumstances.

MBE’s initial training course consists of ca. 4 weeks of class-room, in-store and field trainings. The focus is, in addition to basic operating aspects, primarily on building business development skills. 

MBE offers on-going training sessions to further support develop of your business know-how and professional selling skills. These can be provided by company personnel, regional managers (if present), network/regional meetings with other MBE business associates, workshops, videos, in-Center programs, vendor co-sponsored sessions, etc.

Today there are ca. 1,600 MBE Centers in over 30 countries worldwide.  This demonstrates the flexibility, adaptability applicability of MBE for virtually any cultural or economic environment.
