The UPS Store Main Street Model

Whether it’s a big city, suburb, or small town, every owner of a The UPS Store has the support of an industry-leading brand and access to its promotional, advertising and other corporate expertise and resources. In addition, The UPS Store’s Main Street Model provides an attractive and affordable franchising opportunity that serves as a low cost option for business owners seeking opportunities in small and rural communities.

Store-in-Store Model

The UPS Store launched our Store-in-Store concept in the 1980s to set up freestanding centers inside hotels, convention centers and other businesses. In 2016, we expanded this idea to allow franchise owners to set up centers in smaller businesses like pharmacies and hardware stores. The real value of the Store-in-Store model is that it allows business owners to provide additional services to their existing customer base and become a one-stop shop, especially in smaller communities that may lack shipping and printing services.
