C.A. Andy Thompson

Owner & Managing Director

As one of the key executives behind Mail Boxes, Etc. (MBE), Andy Thompson helped guide the original “pack and ship” store and franchise concept to unprecedented success. And as a former MBE franchisee himself, he also gained invaluable knowledge and experience at the “ground floor” level, learning, essentially, what works — and what doesn’t — in this ever-changing service and product segment.

With this, and over 20 years of domestic and international franchise experience designing systems for small business retail networks and training thousands of franchise owners and managers worldwide in business operations and management, Andy is one of our key point people when it comes to instructing and preparing new Postal Connections franchisees on how to get their new business up and running with the necessary tools to them get started.
