Batteries Plus Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Unlike most businesses, Batteries Plus provides multiple ways for you to generate sales and revenue. As a franchise owner, you'll sell batteries and lighting products, while providing customers with valuable services like device repair, auto key cutting and key fob programming. Best of all, as a needs-based business, the products and services that we offer are largely insulated from fluctuating market trends. Lighting and power are not luxury items, they're necessary items that play an essential role in customers' lives. Even when money is tight, customers replace batteries and light bulbs.

You don't need prior industry experience; we will equip you and the members of your team with the training necessary to run, promote, manage and grow a successful Batteries Plus franchise.

Customers trust Batteries Plus because our employees solve problems. Our stores also offer a full catalog of customer services that range from simple fixes like watch battery replacement to more complex offerings like phone repairs and key fob programming.

When evaluating a franchise opportunity, reading and understanding the current version of their FDD is a necessity. Considering the benefits of franchising, such as established brand recognition and support from the franchisor, it's important to also take into account franchise fees and franchising royalty fees. Since most franchisors are privately owned companies, the current versions of their FDDs are typically not available unless requested directly from them.
