What Does it Take to Turn On The Lights at a Batteries Plus Bulbs Store?

All franchise opportunities require an investment. With more than 25 consecutive years of same-store sales and store growth, investing in a Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise is an exceptionally smart one.

Typical initial investment is

Fixed costs

  • One-time franchise fee

  • Initial inventory

  • Store fixtures

  • Computer software/hardware

  • Equipment/supplies, etc.

Variable costs

  • Required improvements for a leased or owned site

  • Exterior signage

  • Cost of a delivery vehicle

  • Choices made by the franchisee

"I love it – the support is well worth the franchise fee." Ron Bogdanovich, Franchise Owner.

*In some cases, the initial investment can be as low as $215,061 and the high as $389,037.


You’re not investing in Batteries Plus Bulbs. You’re investing in yourself and your future.

Before You Can Maximize Your Return, You Need to Meet Some Minimum Requirements

Franchisees must meet the minimum financial requirements and be in a position to capitalize the franchise investment, including working capital and any personal living expenses during the store ramp up period.

Minimum financial requirements

  • Minimum of $100,000 in liquid assets**

  • Minimum net worth of $350,000

  • A good credit rating

To see why we call these initial costs an “investment,” take a look at our How Much Can I Make page. As with any investment, the thing you should be most concerned with is your return.

**Minimum liquid assets can be met through any combination of cash, stocks, bonds, mutual funds, retirement accounts, or any other non-borrowed source. A co-applicant may assist in meeting this requirement.
