March 16, 2022 // Franchising.com // HARTLAND, Wis. – Batteries Plus is already hitting the ground running in 2022 with the advancement of their executive team. The omni-channel retail franchise just announced the promotion of Jon Sica to Chief Business Officer among other key additions to the franchise development team.
Sica started his professional career by writing Cabela’s catalogs but quickly blazed a trail towards executive level titles by mixing the art and science of business to find success across big box, QSR and franchise companies. He joined the Batteries Plus team in April 2019 as the Chief Strategy Officer, where he was tasked with driving expansion. Sica spent three years focused on not just defining successful strategies but connecting them to people and executing in a way that delivers consistent, predictable results while building business value. Sica climbs the leadership ladder from his previous position of Chief Strategy and Development Officer, and the promotion comes on the heels of a tremendously successful 2021 which brought 88 signings, 23 openings, the brands first foray into refranchising, and multiple acquisitions across the country. With his new title, Sica assumes the leadership of the brand’s strategic Information Technology efforts and will integrate its Project Management Office (PMO) and strategy teams to align the brand’s roadmap to its ongoing mission as a technology-forward franchisor.
