Investing in your own project requires a serious commitment of time, energy and resources not only for business development, but also for dealing with the uncertainties of constantly evolving markets and technologies characterized by sudden changes.

For this reason, more and more people choose to rely on franchisors, i.e. consolidated brands that offer their partners a series of advantages. If you are thinking about commercial affiliation as a business model to set up or relaunch your business, find out about the opportunities of MBE franchising. Discover an international network that offers retail commercial solutions for companies and private customers in the shipping sector, logistics and e-commerce.

Opening a franchise offers several advantages: from continuous training to the possibility of accessing the know-how of a brand with years of experience in the sector, thus allowing aspiring entrepreneurs to focus their energies on developing innovative ideas. Furthermore, investing in commercial affiliation proves to be a potentially valid strategy, even for those who aspire to expand their range of activities and have the opportunity to operate beyond their territorial borders, capitalizing on the success of consolidated brands. A study conducted by Oxford University entitled The Value of Franchising offers an interesting picture of the effectiveness of franchise brands compared to independent competitors operating in the same sector. Affiliated companies register a volume of sales 1.8 times greater than the competition and are able to generate a number of jobs 2.3 times higher than independent companies, offering greater opportunities for professional growth thanks to a dynamic and diverse work environment. Big brands such as Mail Boxes Etc., with a consolidated reputation and an international presence represent a valuable opportunity for those who want to start their own business in the shipping, logistics or e-Commerce services sectors.
