Mail Boxes Etc (MBE) purchases PostNet, which will operate as a sister company in the US.
There are 17 PostNet franchises in Australia, and no current plans to change the brand name over to MBE says Clayton Treloar, CEO, MBE Australia.
“The master license reports through to Italy, it is up to Italy whether they want to rebrand, and the speed of that. However, if we end up rebranding the PostNet stores to MBE, the benefits will be that the number of locations would surge overnight."
MBE Australia continues to grow, having recently added a franchisee in Macquarie Park, with another planned for Perth.
“I’m hoping to have a good conversation with Robin Lau, CEO, PostNet to get his take on it and see where he wants to go with it”, says Treloar.
Currently, PostNet and MBE operate in Australia as entirely independent entities.
