Pete Belessis founded Mailings, Coupons & More, Inc. (MCM) in the North Alabama market in 1985. The story actually starts a of couple years earlier in Columbus, Georgia, where Pete owned a direct mail advertising franchise there before selling it to his best friend, Mike. After selling it, however, Pete realized how much he loved the industry, and so started a similar franchise business in Huntsville, Alabama. Much of MCM’s early processes and methodologies are based on what Pete learned when he was a franchisee. But when Pete saw the concepts from that franchise no longer made sense in his market, Pete became an independent business and Coupon Express, MCM’s product, was formed.
Over the years MCM grew and developed a reputation of excellence. Many of our clients have been with us for decades. What used to be an unattractive two-color product in an envelope, later evolved into a beautiful full color coupon book on gloss paper. MCM’s philosophy is to put out the absolute best product at an affordable price. We also help our clients develop the offers and approach that has the best chance of working and producing a measurable result. We pride ourselves in not cutting corners, but instead giving our clients more than they expected. That’s why we like to brag, we are the best!
The MCM team is made up of tough-minded individuals who truly care about our clients. They have expanded the business way beyond what Pete started. As Pete moves toward retirement, the MCM team will continue in that path of excellence that started so many years ago.
