Celebrating 25 years of business success!


Mail Boxes Etc (MBE) Manuka is celebrating twenty-five years of ‘making business easier’ for the Canberra community. The long-standing MBE store opened its doors on 19 June 1995, by proud franchise owners Arthur and Marilyn Gray.


Marilyn said, “We’ve been honoured to work with a wide range of clients, ranging from small businesses, community organisations, international and national associations at both Australian Capital Territory and Federal Government level. It’s been an interesting journey over the past 25 years. We started from nothing and have built our business to what it is today.”


Arthur is humbled by the recent support shown over the past few months. He said “We truly value our clients and we thank them for their continued support during this trying COVID-19 period.”


During this unprecedented time, the MBE franchise network has led the way in supporting their franchise partners by providing multiple strategies to help their businesses continue to operate.


Clayton Treloar, MBE CEO has highlighted the support currently being provided, saying that; “We’re still doing everything we can to support franchisees, by offering reduced royalty fees, ongoing communication and training, and increased awareness for the changing business landscape. I have spoken with almost every MBE landlord in the country to ensure our partners are being well looked after and they are closely following the National Code of Conduct when it comes to landlords and tenants”.


“I would like to personally congratulate Arthur and Marilyn in their big milestone. They are an integral part of our network and enjoy great success in the city of Canberra.”


The MBE franchise network is continuing to grow with new stores confirmed to open in New South Wales and Victoria in the coming months.
