Batteries Plus Differentiators

The Batteries Plus brand name enjoys major recognition. We’re known in the industry as a tech franchise that keeps up with consumer trends and demands. Our franchisees can leverage our highly competitive and stable business model to offer a wide range of products and services that keep customers coming back.

  • We specialize in more than just batteries. Since the marketplace is fragmented, many businesses are niche driven. Our franchisees can help customers keep their technology running smoothly, for anything they are looking to power, by providing products and services in a commercial or residential setting.
  • We’re able to access a wide variety of products quickly. If the product isn’t available in-store, franchisees can source and deliver the product quickly thanks to our in-house distribution center. We’re dedicated to going above and beyond for customers.
  • We provide a lifetime of support. We developed our time-tested business model to maximize efficiency and help franchisees see a stronger return on their investment. You can count on our team to keep you up to date and stay on top of the competition.
  • We offer a world-class online training program. We make it easy for franchisees with little to no experience to master our proven system and access resources with our extensive online database.

Revenue Streams

By leveraging multiple revenue streams, Batteries Plus franchisees can stay competitive in a rapidly evolving market. Our franchisees have the ability to take their businesses to the next level by providing our diverse range of products and services to consumers across a wide range of industries. The best part? There’s no cap on what franchisees can earn, and our customer base isn’t limited to in-store sales.

In-Store Sales

Franchisees provide in-store expertise to meet all of their customers’ power needs. Our franchise opportunity allows you to operate as a battery store franchise, cell phone repair franchise, and lighting franchise simultaneously to keep retail and commercial customers alike powered up and running smoothly. With more than 25,000 battery solutions and 15,000 lighting solutions, we can address all your customers’ power, lighting, and repair needs, from the hard-to-find to the everyday.

E-Commerce Site

Our extensive catalog isn’t just available in-store; our robust e-commerce site makes it easy for customers to order from your location and keep all their devices running smoothly with components and repairs that are hard to find elsewhere.

B2B

When you invest in our franchise opportunity, you’ll be able to keep your revenue sources diverse by serving both B2C and B2B customers. Our products and services keep technology running smoothly, a critical need for all customers, especially for businesses. Over 250,000 commercial accounts across a wide range of industries trust us to power their spaces, co-workers, and clients.  

Average sales of the top 75% of engaged owners in commercial sales is $1,563,859*

National Business Accounts

Franchisees can further power their sales and become the number one choice for area businesses with our National Accounts Division. This division was established to serve businesses with dozens or hundreds of locations in multiple metropolitan areas and throughout the United States.

Working in conjunction with the Batteries Plus National Accounts team, franchisees can help reduce costs, increase spend influence, and improve procurement agility with customized sales and services for each account’s unique needs.
