A Day in the Life of a Battery and Lighting Store Franchisee

Our battery and lighting store franchises are run by diverse people, all of whom have established their own routines. The great thing about choosing Batteries Plus is that there’s already a streamlined system in place, so it’s easier than ever to keep each store running smoothly and delegate many responsibilities to your trusted staff.

What would a day in your life as a franchisee look like? That would depend on the role you carve out for yourself and whether you’d prefer to manage your store personally or take on a higher-level role. Here, review a few of the tasks that many of our franchisees take on regularly.

Review Your Sales and Place Orders

Battery and lighting store franchises stock a wide variety of items necessary to keep homes and businesses running smoothly. Franchisees often take a personal interest in analyzing which items are selling well, so they can adjust their stock accordingly. You’ll get to know the items that are most popular in your community, so your store stays busy.

You, or someone on your team, will also take time to manage commercial sales. By investing in your commercial sales, you are extending your sales potential outside your four walls.

A great reason to choose Batteries Plus is that we have a dedicated warehouse fully stocked with all of our products. As a result, franchisees are able to stock their stores faster and more efficiently than other retailers.

Update Marketing Efforts

Another great reason to choose Batteries Plus is the marketing support you’ll enjoy. We know that effective marketing is key to driving business to franchisees, so we’re here to help you by providing you with marketing collateral, helping you choose the most effective channels, and investing in corporate marketing campaigns. We even help in your digital marketing efforts so you can better connect with customers where they spend time online.

Marketing shouldn’t take up much of your time, but our franchisees are regularly involved in keeping their local campaigns active.

Battery and Lighting Store Franchise Operations

Depending on whether or not you choose to manage your location, the time you’ll spend on operations will vary. That said, as the franchisee, you have a vested interest in ensuring that your store is running smoothly. Franchisees periodically make sure that their employees are following our proven processes and that those processes are working as intended. When your store is operating efficiently, there’s more opportunity for you to see strong returns on your investment.

Ongoing Training

Periodically, Batteries Plus will release updated training materials or host franchisee conferences. These are important ways to stay on top of best practices and learn about new strategies for growing your business. Along these lines, you should also plan on meeting with our leadership team from time to time to ensure that you stay on track towards achieving your growth goals.

These are just a few of the ways our battery and lighting store franchisees regularly spend their time. Contact us today to learn more about their responsibilities.
