This unique retail and wholesale business serves a purpose by meeting the growing demands of portable power, alternative energy and consumer electronics. The average home has a minimum of 14 different batteries while businesses often have more! A Pacific Power Batteries franchise will meet those needs. Many retail customers return 5 to 12 times per year. Some resellers and commercial customers, such as fleets, need batteries weekly or bi-weekly.
Owning a Pacific Power Batteries franchise provides you with a proven proprietary system. Pacific Power Batteries has been fine-tuning that system since it started in 1985.
Positive Community Impact: Your store becomes THE resource for all battery needs including specialty and hard-to-find types. As a Franchisee, you will be the BATTERY SPECIALIST in your community!
Proven Major Markets include business to business, industrial, government, military, local municipalities, off-grid/solar/wind consumers and all general consumers.
Clean, vibrant, interesting stores are inviting to men, women, seniors and children who may not be familiar with batteries or electrical components. Our displays of electric vehicles, golf cars, solar panels and inverters bring in a variety of customers. Sure we sell auto, truck, RV and Marine batteries. But OUR stores are dynamic retail stores for DC portable power that get people thinking about cool, energy efficient and fun stuff. We are also a drop off site for recycling of all types of batteries: a great resource for today's businesses and consumers.
Excellent franchise support system strengthens the network of Pacific Power Batteries stores. Product knowledge, customer service, marketing strategies (which we teach you), and purchasing power are essential in today's highly technical, price sensitive and rapidly changing battery markets.
