About BATTERIES PLUS BULBS Franchise
Batteries Plus is the nation's largest and fastest-growing battery, light bulb, key fob and phone/tablet repair franchise, with a nationwide network of more than 725 stores.
A STANDOUT IN THE MARKETPLACE
Why us? Easy. There are a number of factors that differentiate Batteries Plus from other franchises, including exceptional proprietary systems, a well-known name that’s established and growing, the ability for franchisees to take advantage of multiple revenue streams, the needs-based products we sell, and the high barriers to entry for any competitors. We can delve a little further into a few of those here.
MANY WAYS TO EARN
Think about the ways you and your family use batteries and bulbs at home. Then add cell phones (with screens that need repair, and batteries that fade) and key fobs, and you understand the idea of “multiple revenue streams”. Now add in the potential for acquiring commercial customers, national accounts and eCommerce and you’ll see that the opportunities for franchise income are vast and varied. Long story short: Multiple revenue streams drive sales and profits.
EXPERTS IN THE FIELD
It’s all you. You’ll be the partner your community turns to when they have lighting, power or repair needs. You’ll be an invaluable resource because of your exceptional customer service, expertise and quality-tested products. That builds trust. And customers who come back again and again.
You and your team will continue to learn and engage via our world-class online university, empowerYOU. Reinforce the basics, learn about new procedures and products and even earn additional certification in designated areas of the business.
WHO WE ARE
Our story began in 1988 with a single store. Located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the team at Batteries Plus (the “Bulbs” part came later) set out with a simple mission: To serve their customers’ needs through a combination of quality products and superior technical knowledge.
The concept caught on, and over 30 years later we still have superior quality standards, service and technical knowledge, but our franchises are so much more than that. They’re good neighbors and supportive community members. They’re the folks who shop at your grocery store and send their kids to school with yours. They’re proud to tell you that their businesses are locally owned, and how important that is to their customers who trust them to change their car battery, light their school’s gymnasium and fix the phones that keep them connected.
That’s a pretty amazing thing to be a part of, don’t you think?
OUR FRANCHISE SUPPORT SYSTEMS
Let’s Do This. Together. You’ll never go it alone.
We’ve spent decades perfecting our franchise support systems.
Internal experts in their respective areas will go step-by-step to train you in retail management, commercial sales and device repair. You’ll get business coaching whenever you need it, and our online learning system keeps the training coming, even after your store is up and running.
PRODUCT & WAREHOUSE
Your store is just a part of the equation. You’ll also have the support of the people and products in our 150,000 sq. ft. warehouse facility. You’ll manage your costs by stocking the appropriate products, but also having every battery, bulb and fixture we carry available to you and your customers at a moment’s notice. With this system in place, you’re sure to have the right merchandise on the shelf at the right time.
At your service… The QA team ensures that our products maintain a consistent level of quality. They work closely with our vendors, auditing manufacturers and testing individual products to make sure they remain up to our standards.
It’s all done for you: Social media management (Check out all of the channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, You Tube), email, promotional materials, print ads and more. You’ll have a dedicated media buyer who will work one-on-one with you to assess your needs and place ads. Plus, we’ll take care of all of your public relations, including store opening hype, and other big announcements, too. So you can concentrate 100% on running your store.
Hardware, software, telecommunications, user support, networks & network security… Information Technology (IT) is responsible for all computer and computer-related matters in the company. You’ll benefit from the most robust proprietary systems to help with sales, inventory, communication, training and HR. And we’re continuously developing more.
THINK YOU'RE A GOOD FIT?
Our franchisees come from all walks of life, but the experience and job skills that set folks apart include sales and retail experience and true dedication to, and passion for, customer service. Those things, combined with drive, initiative, and a willingness to get in there and do the work, will help set you on the path to success. Think you’re a good fit?
