About The UPS Store

An Exceptional Opportunity

There are several things that make The UPS Store exceptional. It’s a proven business model, capable of adapting to economic changes. Starting first as an alternative to the US Postal Service, The UPS Store is now a full‐service, one‐stop shop for the business services that small business needs including printing, mailbox services, shredding, packaging and of course, shipping. With over 40 years of franchising experience in the US, and over 30 in Canada, The UPS Store is clearly a proven business model. The over 5,600 locations across North America, including over 385 in Canada, reinforce that point.

In addition, we carry the power of the UPS brand ‐ a world recognized, world class brand – in our name. As one of the most recognizable brands in the world, the UPS brand carries a great deal of strength in the marketplace and a strong, trusted reputation. That recognition and trust carries forward to The UPS Store, offering credibility in the marketplace from the moment a new store opens its doors. Recognized as the industry leader, The UPS Store continues to define and lead the business services category with its own distinguished world class brand.

With the services and expertise they provide to small business, The UPS Store franchises are an integral and valued necessity in today’s business marketplace. They provide business service solutions and impeccable customer support to small business in need of big business resources.

The UPS Store offers a comprehensive franchised business solution for the independent businessperson, with the full backing of all of over 40 years of experience and resources.

Best of all, we have numerous franchise opportunities available throughout the country. Yours may be in a neighbourhood near you.

 

Experience In Franchising, Our History

Here in Canada, The UPS Store brand is currently licensed to MBEC Communications Inc. In 1988, the master license for Canada was granted, paving the way to bring what was then Mail Boxes Etc. into the Canadian market. In 2005, the Canadian franchisees overwhelmingly chose to rebrand, and The UPS Store was launched in Canada on October 5th of that year. It is now Canada’s largest network of print and business centres.
