Service. Knowledge. Discipline. Traits that guarantee success in the branches of our nation’s armed forces are the very same traits that can contribute to a person’s success as a business owner. That’s why veterans see a great opportunity with Batteries Plus Bulbs. We’re proud to be named in the 50 Top Franchises for Veterans list by Entrepreneur magazine, as well as in the top 20 in Best Franchises by Military Times magazine.

And just as veterans are excited to invest in us, we’re proud to invest in them. Batteries Plus Bulbs offers a $10,000 discount to veterans who open their own franchise. It’s our way of supporting veterans as small business owners and VetFran, a strategic initiative of the International Franchise Association. Service to our country should be lauded, and we’re happy to do our part.

“I wanted control of my destiny. I wanted a job that took advantage of my management and technical skills. Batteries Plus Bulbs fits that bill.” -- Daniel Kopp, United States Air Force veteran.

Veterans tend to adapt easily to ownership. Why? Overall, veterans tend to have a solid work ethic, technical know-how, a commitment to service and the discipline it takes to successfully run a business. “In a small business, you have to be able to do a little of everything. Mop floors, navigate permits and taxes, customer service, etc.” Kopp says. “We do what we need to do to get the job done. And that’s a military person’s point of view.”

Thank you for your service; we appreciate your sacrifice.

If you’re interested in taking advantage of the Veteran's Discount and perhaps exploring the idea of a Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise, please fill out the form or call 866-855-8577. We’ll be happy to talk with you.
