In the franchise industry, the topic of responsible franchising is making waves, reshaping the landscape for franchisors and franchisees alike. It’s a concept that transcends the traditional profit-first mindset, fostering long-term sustainability, shared success, and a culture of collaboration. At the heart of this movement is Batteries Plus, a brand that exemplifies the principles of responsible franchising, setting a standard for what it means to be a great choice for franchisees.

One inspirational story, which details Alan Goldsmith’s transformation from an employee to a thriving franchisee in Anderson, South Carolina, underlines the essence of responsible franchising. Batteries Plus, a beacon of ethical business practice, has demonstrated how fostering incredible talent, providing ongoing support, and emphasizing a culture of collaboration can lead to remarkable success.

From Employee to Franchise Owner

Alan’s journey began within the walls of a Batteries Plus store, where he initially worked under a franchisee. His dedication, skill, and passion for the business did not go unnoticed. Excelling in his role, he seized the opportunity to transition from an employee to the owner of the very business he helped build. This shift wasn’t just a career move but a life-changing event showcasing the empowering culture Batteries Plus nurtures.

Responsible Franchising with Batteries Plus 

According to, responsible franchising is built on several key pillars: a clear brand vision, a strong company culture, the selection of the right franchisees, and the avoidance of harmful practices. It’s a model that encourages growth not just for its own sake but for the benefit of all stakeholders involved. Batteries Plus exemplifies these pillars in our daily operations with all of our franchisees and potential candidates. 

For Batteries Plus, our responsible franchising model also includes taking care of every franchisee from the beginning of their business journey to their entire lifetime with us. We didn’t just offer Alan a franchise opportunity, we provided a comprehensive support system. This included detailed training, ongoing coaching, and access to a network of experienced franchisees. Alan’s journey from an employee to an owner is a shining example of how Batteries Plus commits to every individual within the organization, ensuring they have the tools and resources to succeed.

Continuous Improvement for Franchisee Growth

Responsible franchising also means continuous improvement from the franchisor. Batteries Plus is committed to enhancing its business model through new products, better vendor partnerships, and technological advancements. This ongoing effort to improve profitability and support franchisee growth allowed Alan to expand his business, opening new locations and continuing his success story.

Today, Alan is developing a new Batteries Plus location in North Carolina. This step reflects not only his personal growth but also the strength of the Batteries Plus franchise model. This expansion is a testament to the mutually beneficial relationship between the franchisor and its franchisees, emphasizing the company’s role in fostering successful entrepreneurs.

Why Batteries Plus Stands Out

Alan’s experience with Batteries Plus highlights the company as a responsible franchisor that genuinely invests in the success and growth of its franchisees. The journey from an employee to a franchise owner, supported by transparent communication and continuous improvement strategies, demonstrates the brand’s commitment to building a legacy of success and integrity.

This isn’t just a success story, it reflects what Batteries Plus stands for in the franchising industry. As the company continues to lead with responsible franchising principles, it enhances its reputation and solidifies its position as a top choice for potential franchisees seeking a reliable, supportive, and ethical business partner.
