A Standout in the Marketplace

Why us? Easy. There are a number of factors that differentiate Batteries Plus Bulbs from other franchises, including exceptional proprietary systems, a well-known name that’s established and growing, the ability for franchisees to take advantage of multiple revenue streams, the needs-based products we sell, and the high barriers to entry for any competitors. We can delve a little further into a few of those here.

Many Ways to Earn

Think about the ways you and your family use batteries and bulbs at home. Then add cell phones (with screens that need repair, and batteries that fade) and key fobs, and you understand the idea of “multiple revenue streams”. Now add in the potential for acquiring commercial customers, national accounts and eCommerce and you’ll see that the opportunities for franchise income are vast and varied. Long story short: Multiple revenue streams drive sales and profits.

Experts in the Field

It’s all you. You’ll be the partner your community turns to when they have lighting, power or repair needs. You’ll be an invaluable resource because of your exceptional customer service, expertise and quality-tested products. That builds trust. And customers who come back again and again.

Who We Are

Our story began in 1988 with a single store. Located in Green Bay, Wisconsin, the team at Batteries Plus (the “Bulbs” part came later) set out with a simple mission: To serve their customers’ needs through a combination of quality products and superior technical knowledge.

The concept caught on, and over 30 years later we still have superior quality standards, service and technical knowledge, but our franchises are so much more than that. They’re good neighbors and supportive community members. They’re the folks who shop at your grocery store and send their kids to school with yours. They’re proud to tell you that their businesses are locally owned, and how important that is to their customers who trust them to change their car battery, light their school’s gymnasium and fix the phones that keep them connected.

That’s a pretty amazing thing to be a part of, don’t you think?
