Interstate Batteries Looks to Energize U.S. Franchisees

January 22, 2008 // // - (DALLAS) – Interstate All Battery Center (IABC), a division of Interstate Batteries, which was recently voted 2007 United States Automotive Technicians' Choice Award for best batteries, is actively recruiting retail-minded franchisees across the country in 14 different markets, ranging from Atlanta, Birmingham, Jacksonville, Nashville and West Palm Beach.

IABC, the fastest growing division of Interstate Batteries, is powered by the nation's top name in replacement car batteries and America's growing appetite for portable electronic devices. Statistics show the average household has about 21 battery-operated devices .

"Our stores fill energy needs for every purpose – from powerbooks to powertools, laptops to hearing aids," said IABC's Senior Marketing Manager Kent Chapin. "We sell more than 15 million batteries a year, and with that kind of demand, franchising our proven product is the obvious next step for growth."

To capitalize on Interstate's success as the #1 automotive battery replacement brand, Interstate All Battery Centers are now adding auto install bays in their locations featuring a 15-minute battery replacement guarantee.

"The 15-minute auto install guarantee is part of our focus as America's #1 automotive replacement battery brand," Chapin said. "It's a popular attraction at our new stores because the process can take several hours at other stores."

Offering quick installation, one-stop shopping and high quality batteries has been a successful formula. The company reports an average of $850,000 annual sales per store .

"Recognized for its leadership in the industry and through sports with the NASCAR Number 18 car and as the official battery of Joe Gibbs Racing, Interstate All Battery Centers seems to be a low risk and high return investment for any franchisee or investment group," said Chapin.
