Why Batteries Plus Bulbs

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


25+ consecutive years of same-store & system sales growth

There are no guarantees in life, but over 25 years of consecutive growth is a comforting track record.


Category leader

Batteries Plus Bulbs is the uncontested leader in the $30.7 billion U.S. battery industry and is rapidly growing in the U.S. light bulb industry, estimated to be at $17 billion in sales.*


A needs-based, consumable product business

Batteries and bulbs wear out. Your customers will depend on you for their power and lighting solutions and will come back again and again. Talk about repeat business!


Multiple revenue streams

In addition to retail and business account sales, franchise owners also profit from national accounts, ecommerce sales, technical services and mobile device repair.


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.


We easily came up with ten good reasons to join Batteries Plus Bulbs. But we couldn’t think of one good reason not to.


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 we’ll be ready.


Access to over 50,000 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 20 consecutive years and #1 in the battery category for the past six. Additionally we are ranked #8 Best Franchise in America by Forbes® in their mid-range investment category.
