Franchise Advantages to Help You Succeed

When it comes to starting your own business, you need more than the right products and a great location. While many franchising opportunities allow you to own and operate your own business without reinventing the wheel, they don’t offer any game-changing benefits to help set you up for success. The advantages of a Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise include it being a needs-based business with multiple revenue streams, backed by over 25 years of well-established systems and support, that can help your business reach its full potential.

The Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise opportunity allows you to enjoy the freedom of owning your own business and making the decisions, while knowing you’re definitely not alone. We will provide you with well-defined, proven processes and procedures starting with your site approval all the way to your store opening. But our unparalleled support doesn’t stop there - it’s comprehensive and ongoing.

We are proud of our 25 year track record of helping franchisees get their businesses launched. We look forward to helping you get your business off to a fast start so you can start achieving your goals.
