Specialty retail franchise offers advantages to customers and franchisees
Batteries Plus Bulbs is the nation’s largest and fastest growing battery, light bulb, key fob and phone/tablet repair franchise, with a nationwide network of more than 700 stores. Our specialty retail franchise offers batteries, light bulbs and related items for phones, cars, motorcycles and hundreds of other applications. As mobile devices continue to grow in number, so does the demand to repair broken phones and tablets — a service provided in-store through our We Fix It® repair centers. Plus, Batteries Plus Bulbs has recently added key cutting and key fob programming to its growing list of services.
An unrivaled resource for customers
Customers trust us to have the products and services they need when they need them most. Store owners deliver on this promise by stocking a wide breadth of batteries and bulbs in stores, each of which stocks about 1,000 distinct products. Batteries Plus Bulbs also stocks 9,000 products in our primary warehouse in Wisconsin and can deliver items to stores in 1-2 days. As a specialty retail franchise, we are able to quickly deliver products that general retailers don’t stock and cannot quickly provide. This creates a huge competitive advantage and helps build customer loyalty.
Customers also trust us to fix things. While we pride ourselves on our assortment of specialty products, the reason customers love us is because we are problem-solvers. When a customer comes into a Batteries Plus Bulbs store, they have a problem. They’re not looking for a product — they’re looking for a solution. Our systems put 30 years of expertise at the fingertips of franchisees and associates, allowing them to find the right part or service and turn customer frustration into relief and satisfaction. Our franchisees earn strong repeat business and word-of-mouth recommendations.
A franchise powered by a culture of trust
Early on, we realized our relationships with our customers, our suppliers and our franchisees had to be as trustworthy and reliable as the batteries and light bulbs we sell. But trust isn’t something you can demand. You have to earn it. The Batteries Plus Bulbs corporate team earns trust every day by living up to our corporate values and helping support our franchise owners. Franchise owners earn it by delivering knowledgeable service and dependable products to their local retail and business customers. Trust permeates throughout the company; it’s how we do business. We’re looking for potential franchise owners who share these beliefs and who want to grow with us.
Batteries Plus Bulbs strives to be innovative. Whether it’s new product technology, leading-edge digital marketing or a better eCommerce platform, we are always pursuing innovation and creating new ways to drive sales and improve our franchise opportunity for those who are exploring owning a business.
Our team is loyal and devoted to the company, our franchise owners, and most importantly, our customers. This means when you invest in owning a Batteries Plus Bulbs franchise, we’re devoted to helping you achieve your business goals.
While always looking for the win-win, the company strives to do the right thing for all the business stakeholders including franchisees, customers, suppliers and associates.
We understand that we are a team and as such, we are responsible for helping each other grow. This ultimately benefits the brand as a whole.
