The Reasons To Be A Batteries Plus Bulbs Franchise Owner Just Keep Adding Up


29 consecutive years of same-store & system sales growth

There are no guarantees in life, but 29 consecutive years of same store sales and system growth is a comforting track record if you're looking for franchise opportunities poised for continued stability and growth.


Category leader

Batteries Plus Bulbs is the uncontested leader in the $32 billion U.S. battery industry and the rapidly growing U.S. light bulb industry, estimated to be at $22 billion in sales. We're also the top cell phone repair franchise in terms of number of retail locations nationwide, serving the $3.9 billion device repair industry.*


A needs-based, consumable product franchise opportunity

Batteries and bulbs wear out. People break their smartphones. Your customers depend on you for their power and lighting solutions and to fix their cracked screens and broken buttons on their smartphones and tablets. They will come back again and again. Talk about repeat business!


Multiple revenue streams

In addition to retail and business account sales, our franchise owners also profit from We Fix It Repair Center sales including smartphone and tablet repairs, national accounts, and ecommerce sales.


Some of the most satisfied franchisees in any industry

Our franchisees are so satisfied that in the last 3 years alone 1/4 of them opened an additional 90+ Batteries Plus Bulbs stores.


Skyrocketing demand

U.S. households have approximately 3.3 billion devices requiring batteries and 7 billion sockets requiring light bulbs. At some point every one of those batteries and light bulbs will need to be replaced and many of those devices repaired, and you'll be ready to serve these customers in your community.


Access to nearly 60,000 batteries, light bulbs and power-related accessories

There’s no such thing as “hard-to-find” batteries or light bulbs when you have access to this many SKUs through our dedicated supply chain.


Proven model

Few franchise opportunities are as time-tested and successful as Batteries Plus Bulbs has been since 1988. We continue to find new products and services to satisfy emerging demand and stay on trend.


Industry recognition

Recognized by Entrepreneur Magazine as one of the top 500 franchises in America for the past 23 consecutive years and #1 in the battery category for the past eight. Additionally we are ranked #4 among the Best Franchises in America by Forbes® in their mid-range investment category.


$1,398,616 average net sales for the top 25% of our stores**

This last point speaks for itself.

*Internal Market Study **Net revenue average of $1,398,616 is based on the net sales average for the 167 stores that represent the top 25% of all 668 stores open during the entire 2016 calendar year. Of those 167 stores, 60 stores (or 36% of the 167 stores in the top quartile) met or exceeded the net revenue average (or 8.9% of the 668 stores open during the entire 2016 calendar year). This figure is only an estimate of what we think you may earn. There is no assurance you will do as well. See Item 19 of our 2017 FDD for further details.
