Fast-Growing Retail Franchise Announces Multi-Unit Franchise Operator Development Initiative
HARTLAND, Wis. --(Business Wire)--
With 25 consecutive years of system and same store sales growth and an
average of about one new store opening per week, Batteries Plus Bulbs,
the nation's first, largest and fastest-growing battery and light bulb
franchise, is launching a new Multi-Unit Franchise Operator Development
Initiative designed to keep the 25-year-old leading brand on the fast
track for growth.
Through the Multi-Unit Franchise Operator Development Initiative, Batteries
Plus Bulbs is offering extraordinary support, including discounted
fees, to assist qualified multi-unit franchisees from other
non-competing brands in the development of two or more Batteries Plus
Bulbs stores. The new initiative is intended to expose qualified
multi-unit franchise operators from other franchise concepts to the
Batteries Plus Bulbs opportunity.
"We've experienced consistent growth over the past 10 years, both
organically and with new franchisees," said John Twist, Vice President
of Franchise and Business Development for Batteries Plus Bulbs. "What
we're now starting to see is interest from experienced franchisees that
own multiple units of other non-competing brands. Whether it's because
their existing franchise brand and market has no remaining territories
available or they're looking to own a business that requires a smaller
staff, sells products both retail and business customers need, and is
part of a stable, non-trendy growth industry, they see a tremendous
opportunity to expand their portfolios with us."
To help qualified prospects open multiple stores, Twist said Batteries
Plus Bulbs will be flexible in working within their specific
cirumstances to support individual needs. "The idea of the Multi-Unit
Franchise Operator Development Initiative is not only to attract
qualified, interested candidates, but also help ease any challenges that
might prevent them from being able to open multiple stores. We'll work
with them," he added.
Batteries Plus Bulbs has become the uncontested leader in the growing
battery and light bulb markets, differentiated by superior product
knowledge, product breadth and availability, and helpful advice. In
addition to having access to over 45,000 batteries, light bulbs, and
related products, Batteries Plus Bulbs also offers on-site repairs for
Apple® devices, including iPhones®, iPads® and iPods®, most Samsung (News - Alert)®
devices and many more. Services include: battery replacement, and
cracked screen, charge port, button and antenna repair, among others.
Experts can also install screen protectors on smartphones and tablets to
help avoid future damage. Batteries Plus Bulbs also offers to do most
repairs "while-you-wait" allowing customers to drop-off broken devices
with same-day pickup and a 6-month warranty on all parts and workmanship.
"By adding this new development initiative, smartphone and tablet repair
services, and revenue streams to our franchise opportunity offering, we
have an aggressive plan in place to continue our rapid expansion. We
will continue focusing on opening stores in Southern California, New
York and the Mid-Atlantic region this year," Twist added.
Details about the Multi-Unit Franchise Operator Development Initiative
will be available at the West Coast Franchise Expo, being held October
23-25 in Anaheim, CA (News - Alert), as well as by contacting Batteries Plus Bulbs
