The UPS Store is dedicated to the success of the communities in which it operates, and our growth reflects it. After growing to over 2,000 locations in 2002, we’ve more than doubled our footprint, and we aren’t finished yet. The UPS Store continues to reinforce its strengths to ensure its continued growth for years to come.

With over 40 years of franchising experience, we’ve been able to offer thousands of people the opportunity to become their own boss, everyone from entrepreneurs to corporate executives, including minorities, women, veterans, and retirees. Best of all, we have numerous franchise opportunities available throughout the country.

What Makes The UPS Store Unique

Many places offer printing or postal services, but our dedication to innovation, convenience, and world-class personalized service are what keep The UPS Store at the top of the business services industry.

We’re committed to providing only the best results to our customers, ensuring that each customer we serve will be surprised and delighted in every interaction. Our Pack and Ship Guarantee gives customers peace of mind that their items will arrive safely while reinforcing our dedication to reliability and dependability. Our focus on local business owners shows our commitment to the communities we serve, and our charitable involvements at the local level remind others that we are people who care about people.

We place the customer at the forefront of everything we do, and it doesn’t go unnoticed. As a result of our continued dedication, The UPS Store has been honored as a top retail brand by The Business Journals’ American Brand Excellence Awards. In addition, we’ve been ranked #1 in the business services industry by Entrepreneur Magazine’s Franchise 500 for over 30 consecutive years.

Why Customers Choose The UPS Store

Did you know that more than 84% of the U.S. population lives within 10 miles of a The UPS Store?

Studies have shown that convenience and accessibility are essential for driving business growth in today’s competitive market. Customers rely on The UPS Store because of their prime locations, whether it’s in a shopping center, commercial complex, or non-traditional centers such as universities or hardware stores.

In addition to convenient locations, The UPS Store has simplified business logistics by providing a network of services in a single location. At The UPS Store, customers can take care of shipping, postal, freight, printing, and other business services in one trip. We’ve built our reputation on convenience and world-class service, and our customers continue to count on us for both.

Where We Are Today

The UPS Store has evolved to serve a broader base of customers, providing communities with the largest network of retail shipping, postal, and business services in the country. But despite this growth, one thing will always remain the same: the commitment of our franchisees to offer personalized and professional business services and deliver a world-class customer experience.

We’re proud of our achievements, but none of this would be possible without our dedicated franchisees taking the first step into becoming part of The UPS Store family. It’s our franchisees that have taken us this far in making us a top company. If this sounds like something you want to be a part of, it’s your turn to take advantage of this exciting franchise opportunity.

The reason my husband and I decided to go into franchising and specifically with The UPS Store, is the different opportunities we're given with the business. The UPS Store has name recognition as well as opportunities to expand.

Debbie Adams

What I enjoy most about being a The UPS Store owner is working with my customers. We are the solution specialists for our customers.

Jim George

My favorite part about The UPS Store network is the camaraderie with other franchisees. Everybody loves to help everybody else. You’re really part of a family.

Greg Murray

Franchisee, Florida

The interesting thing about The UPS Store is that when a customer walks through the door there's an extremely high probability that they're coming there to do something that is important to them. So at the end of the day, what we do for customers is very important and they are trusting that we are going to do it well.

Owning a The UPS Store franchise has changed my life because it's finally given me the opportunity to engage my customers and my staff and be able to take real pride in what I do.

What makes being a The UPS Store franchisee worthwhile at the end of the day is the customers. The customers treat us like we're family.

Paul Erchinger

Franchisee, Texas

One nice benefit of owning a The UPS Store franchise for me has been that it gives me the opportunity to be more involved in the community. As I make relationships with others it seems like no matter what the environment is, in one way or another business comes out of that and that's not my objective—it's been a secondary benefit to being involved in the community.

Chris Reminder

Franchisee, Ohio

There are several things that I really enjoy about being a The UPS Store franchisee. First and foremost it allows me to get to know the people in the local community and that is a lot of fun. We get to see people on a regular basis. We get to know their life stories. That's a lot of fun.

Bruce Jones

Since we have joined The UPS Store, our life has changed by just having more time to spend together as a family. We've been very fortunate with the stores that we have and we have a great staff that looks out for our best interest and we look out for theirs.

Lonnie Williams

Franchisee, Oklahoma

What makes The UPS Store so successful is it gives each individual an opportunity to grow with the network and just meet the challenges that are brought to them on a daily basis. Every day gives us a new opportunity to help another person, to help another small business, to answer a question and to solve a problem.

Jeff Graham

Franchisee, Alabama

I love my customers. I love my employees. I love every person, every face that comes into my store. I enjoy every day going into work and I can't see doing anything else for the rest of my life.

Stacie Stigar

Franchisee, Alaska

I think that this franchise is so successful because of all of the resources that are available to us as center owners—we have marketing materials, we have so many different opportunities for help from the home office, and it just really makes for a great franchise.

Don Pollard

Franchisee, New Jersey

I think the thing that makes this franchise successful is a number of things. First of all we have an outstanding system, we have a great product, a great brand, and we're able to attract dynamic people to run these centers and run the business. So I think when you put all that together it really provides for a winning combination.

Mary Ellen Nichols

Franchisee, Tennessee

The thing I love about the franchise is that you have the UPS name backing you but yet you also have the autonomy to make your own decisions to promote.

Laura Griffin

Franchisee, Florida

In the eight short months I've owned my The UPS Store it has really changed my life. I've gone from being an employee of someone else to being an employer of my associates. It's a big responsibility but it's exciting every day.

Sandy Scandrett

Franchisee, Wisconsin

Being a The UPS Store franchisee has improved every aspect of my life. It's very rewarding financially, professionally, and emotionally. I have a large number of regular customers who are really, really appreciative of everything we do.

Kristie Robison

Franchisee, Alabama

I would say owning a The UPS Store location has changed my life to where I have more time and flexibility. In owning your own business you get your store up and running and you get employees that you can trust that are going to help keep your store running. This allows me to attend my two boys' ball games and also travel and do things with them so it has really changed my life for the better.
