Our Battery Franchise Available Markets

There is franchise availability in all 50 states and in Puerto Rico, so there’s plenty of opportunity for you to establish your own store (or stores!), and to grow right along with us.

Do you have questions?
We have answers.

YOU CAN FIND ALL ANSWERS HERE IF YOU NEED THEM
How long does it take to open a technology franchise with Batteries Plus?

The franchise agreement specifies that your store will open in 9 months from the time you sign it. That said, the typical timeline is more like 7-9 months. The primary variable is real-estate availability in your chosen territory.

What are some of the resources I’ll have to help me run my business once it’s open?

Check out our Support page for some examples! We’re always developing new tools, like our comprehensive Retail Management System, designed to simplify your job and strengthen your revenue streams.

What are the criteria you look for when deciding whether an area has the potential to open a tablet repair franchise?

While Batteries Plus stores thrive today in a wide variety of markets, there are a few key attributes we look for, including residential population and local business density. As a consumer-oriented retail store, we prefer to be located in markets with destination-driven retail shopping areas typically populated with ‘big box’ stores. Freestanding buildings, strip centers, or dual-usage buildings of at least 1500-1800 square feet located in these high-traffic areas are ideal locations for our storefronts.
Our Franchise Development team will review your areas of interest and provide an assessment of the market opportunity.
