Coming from an ex manager with BPB corporate, be very careful before you buy. This franchise is going through some huge changes that are costing the owners am additional 10k a year. Their computer system is one of the biggest issues that owners complain about, slow, out of date and
Corp. refuses to update due to expense. The leadership of this franchise is making moves to sell not to help owners make more $ or be more profitable. Their focus in the long run will hurt current owners unless they sell out our they are replaced. They have people in management roles that have no experience in the area they are over.
The average store owner is in the red for 24. Average sales
Per year are around 700k net met depends on rent and number of employees but I know they make about 80k. That number is shrinking due to corp wanting more money from owners for marketing on line ( omni channel) which will take years to develop

Sal Bonilla - regarding the franchisee with the poor experience, where was the franchisee located and how long was he/she in business when you had that cup of coffee?

The franchise will tell you that info in the FDD, which is the document that provides all the relevant info about the franchise. They will also tells you how many stores have failed.

Roy,

Why buy a Franchise that only focuses on one product? In today's economy there is more demand for full service auto repair. With dealership closing and new car sales down, more people are fixing their old cars to keep them running longer. Most Franchises that focus on one Product (i.e. Midas, Meineke, Aamco, Jiffy Lube) are now re-branding into a full service or at least are now offering more service and products. Contact me and I'll be more than happy to discuss. 888-241-6629 or david@franchiseadvisorygroup.net

I too was looking into a batteries plus franchise a while ago. I ended up talking to the owner of an existing franchise. He was kind enough to sit and have coffee with me while we chatted quite a bit. I don't have any info on average revenue, but I must say that I was a bit discouraged after the conversation. He just didn't give the impression that much could be made through battery sales. He did say that he felt that he could make additional income by adding additional products, but that the franchise disallows that. It seemed incremental income also came through battery repair services, but that you need to find a good tech or get up to speed yourself.

He seemed a bit bothered by the control that batteries plus has over franchisees like the mandatory advertising spend and hours. In the end, he said the only way to make money is by opening up multiple stores once you get the system down.
