I hear this a lot when I thank someone. Believe it means, "no, thank YOU", but I want to clarify before I start using it.

So glad to see YoListo back in business.

I just use "no, gracias". I thought "a usted" meant "to you"? Maybe it is a local thing?

Standard polite Spanish which means what you surmise.  By all means use it-- politeness goes a long ways in Mexico.  :)
