From The Owners

“Running a successful MBE is easy.We have become part of the team with some of our clients - you can’t beat the feeling of being appreciated as well as valued. It was an easy decision to re-sign at the end of our 10 year franchise agreement. You can run a successful business with as little as one employee plus yourself.”
-Lyn and Steve Murphy
MBE Melbourne CBD

“The business model creates opportunity. After spending 20 years in the corporate world, I was looking for a business opportunity that would draw on my logistics, shipping and overall business skills. MBE was the perfect answer. The business model provides with me with a variety of opportunities to interact with similar minded business professionals, explore disparate yet connected revenue streams, challenge my creativity for unique points of differentiation in product and service stream offerings, and constantly innovate and reinvent. I never had this flexibility in the corporate world. Today, while gaining tremendous satisfaction from being the master of my own destiny, I can also enjoy the pleasures of a good work/life balance.”
-Duncan Vincent
MBE Point Cook

“We provide solutions to our customers. The appeal of MBE was that it is a problem solver for small businesses, with mail, print and design solutions all at the one convenient location. From the very first day it has been about providing solutions to my customers problems, efficiently and effectively, ultimately becoming a valuable part of their day to day operations. The MBE franchise model is not rigid like a number of others, allowing the flexibility to be relevant and valuable to your local customers. For me MBE is all about having more control over my destiny.”
-Charles Batt
