Batteries Plus has over 800 store locations in development and operation nationwide.

In addition to its ongoing store expansions, Batteries Plus is seeing its sales hit new highs.

The consumer and business specialty battery retailer surpassed the brand's all-time commercial sales record in April by 1.37%. Across its franchise system, Batteries Plus saw $20 million in commercial sales for April, surpassing the previous single-month record by nearly $300,000.

With the addition of seven new national accounts, April also led Batteries Plus to reach a new record-high for their total number of existing national accounts, which played a key role in fueling the sales milestone.

"Batteries Plus is enjoying an enviable streak right now, hitting four consecutive record-setting sales months," said Jon Sica, chief operating officer of Batteries Plus. "And with our base of over 700 operating franchise locations growing at record pace, our team is confident that we'll be sharing some similar news as we get deeper into the year."

With over 800 store locations in development and operation nationwide, Batteries Plus is continuing to expand its footprint. The chain opened eight new stores in the first quarter, with locations spanning Connecticut, Nevada, California, Colorado, New York and Florida. 

These new stores kicked off the company's goal of opening 39 stores and signing 45 additional locations before the end of the year. Batteries Plus ended 2023 with 54 newly-signed franchise agreements.

"More than anything, this record-high sales month is a testament to the effort our franchisees have put forward in their communities to reframe the brand as the leading B2B supplier of specialty batteries," said Joe Malmuth, chief development officer for Batteries Plus.

At Batteries Plus, both consumers and businesses can find products and services including powering equipment, fleets, fire and security systems, cell phone repair, key fob programming and more.
