The Rhode Island Market

As the first of the original Thirteen Colonies to declare independence from Britain, Rhode Islanders have a history of being early adopters. It’s the most energy-efficient state, per capita, in the country. While it’s the smallest state area-wise, it’s the second most densely populated of the 50 U.S. states. Health services are Rhode Island's largest industry, followed by tourism and manufacturing. Its industrial outputs are costume jewelry, fabricated metal products, electrical equipment, machinery, shipbuilding and boatbuilding.

As a Batteries Plus Bulbs franchisee in The Ocean State, you will be able to offer batteries for all types of uses, plus energy-efficient lighting products for both retail and business-to-business customers. As the state’s largest industry, health services offers opportunities for commercial business based on providing specialized batteries for backup power supplies, wheelchairs and other related electronic devices. Provide power and lighting solutions for office buildings, schools and boats that are being built as well. Responding to the increased demand in mobile technology, you will also become a trusted source for smartphone and tablet repair services, including replacing cracked screens and fixing broken buttons.

Quote SignIt was the opportunity I was looking for; to own and operate my own business within a proven system that would allow me to hit the ground running. As I envisioned myself owning and operating a store, becoming the future single-source supplier of batteries and light bulbs to both retail and business customers in my market, I was excited to take the next step in the discovery process."
