Have you considered purchasing a Batteries Plus but are afraid you lack the necessary skills? If so, we have good news for you. Our franchisees come from all walks of life, and many have no retail experience. As a franchisee, you’ll enjoy ongoing support that extends throughout the entire life of your business, including comprehensive training programs, operational support resources, and an extensive franchisee network.
Commercial Sales Training That Sets You Up to Succeed
As part of your initial training, you will attend a week-long training prior to the opening of your brick-and-mortar store. In this training program, you will learn the strategies you need to build this additional business and the resources, product, and industry knowledge needed to succeed. Once back in your market, a dedicated Commercial Sales Coach will meet one-on-one to help you develop the skills you need to land commercial accounts as you visit prospective customers in your area.
Batteries Plus Offers World-Class Franchise Training
Batteries Plus occupies a unique space in the retail and B2B market. Since our stores offer a diverse variety of technology products and services, we’ve built a training program to teach you everything you need to know about our industry. During your initial two-week training, our experts will walk you through day-to-day essentials like store procedures, POS, and retail management systems operation and provide you with a foundational view of the battery industry, including product knowledge, best practices, and device repair certification.
