About Batteries Plus
With the opening of the first retail store in 1988 in Green Bay, Wisconsin, Batteries Plus was the first organization to respond to the evolving needs of the replacement battery market. We began franchising in 1992 and opened our first franchise-owned store in Fort Wayne, IN. The increasing demand for specialty and replacement batteries, combined with our reputation for solving battery problems and providing helpful advice, has led to our rapid success and expansion.
In 2010, we refined the model of the all-battery franchise concept by adding light bulbs to our product line. In 2014, we launched smartphone and tablet repair services nationwide, providing in-store repairs for cracked screens, battery replacements, and more.
As we grow, Batteries Plus will continue to refine our business model, ensuring that our products and services keep up with consumer and commercial demands: so our stores stay competitive.
