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.

Industry Performance

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.

Extensive training and support are provided through The UPS Store's wide network of franchisee support services.
