Company Description


The UPS Store is the world’s largest franchisor of retail shipping, postal, printing and business service centers. Today there are more than 4,800 UPS Store locations in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.

This shipping and postal services franchise was created in 2003 in a partnership between UPS and what was then Mail Boxes Etc. after UPS acquired the former company in 2001. Mail Boxes Etc. rebranded all of its existing units to become UPS Stores and continued to sell new franchises. Mail Boxes Etc. changed its name to The UPS Store Inc. in 2012.

The company is 100 percent franchised, and offers franchising discounts to veterans. Qualifying veterans receive $10,000 off the franchise fee of a new location, and 50 percent off the initial application fee as a part of the Veterans Transition Franchise Initiative.
