About Batteries Plus Bulbs

Our Story

Batteries Plus Bulbs, was the first organization to respond to the evolving needs of the replacement battery market. Our first store opened in 1988 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. We began franchising in 1992 and opened our first franchise-owned store in Fort Wayne, IN. The increasing demand for “specialty” and replacement batteries, combined with our reputation for solving battery problems and providing helpful advice, has led to our rapid success and expansion. In 2010, we refined the model of the all-battery franchise concept by adding light bulbs to our product line. In 2014, we launched smartphone and tablet repair services nationwide, providing in-store repairs for cracked screens, battery replacements, and more.

We are now the nation’s largest and fastest-growing battery, light bulb and smartphone/tablet repair franchise with a nationwide network of stores. With access to more than 60,000 types of batteries, light bulbs and accessories, we have the widest selection of battery and light bulb products available. We offer unmatched service to consumers, businesses and government entities at the national and local levels. Most recently named the #8 Best Franchise to Buy in America by Forbes within our investment category and the #1 franchise in the battery category by Entrepreneur magazine, we continue to reign as the undisputed leader in the expanding $30.7 billion U.S. battery replacement market and the growing $17 billion U.S. light bulb replacement market.*
