Values & History
The UPS Store was first introduced as a business concept in 1980, then known as Mail Boxes Etc. Providing a convenient, reliable, and safe alternative to the local post office, the business evolved as it continued to grow, offering more services, faster shipping time frames, and innovative solutions for businesses and franchise owners. Rebranded as The UPS Store in 2003, the company now operates in more than 7,500 locations across the country.
The US packing and shipping industry topped over $2 billion in total revenue for 2019 alone, growing 2.7% annually over the last five years, with continued growth expected as dependency on fast-turnaround times on shipping increase. The UPS Store offers an affordable investment opportunity for investors, with a strong business model and the potential for high returns through a diverse range of services, providing franchisees with multiple recurring revenue streams.
Training & Support
Extensive training and support are provided through The UPS Store's wide network of franchisee support services. Franchise owners will get everything they need to grow and operate their new business from the moment the doors open and beyond, starting with a four-week training course on the business methodology behind The UPS Store at one of our corporate campuses to ongoing marketing support and client acquisition assistance.
