April 09, 2013 // Franchising.com // DALLAS – What is happiness? In the business world of franchises, it may be all about numbers. A new report from Franchise Business Review says the more units a franchisee owns, the happier that person may be. From the survey of more than 6,600 multi-unit franchisees from more than 300 franchise companies, Interstate All Battery Center ranks among the Top 50 franchise brands and the only battery retailer to make the list.
“Interstate All Battery Center is a proven franchise model for our strategic partners,” Director of Franchise Development Jim Eades said. “The demand for consumer and business portable power is only going to increase with the number and type of electronic devices we use to manage our busy lifestyles.”
Interstate All Battery Center is part of one of the most recognized, widely respected brands in the country in Interstate Batteries and part of a growing $89.4 billion dollar industry.
Franchise Business Review’s research shows franchise operators who own more than one unit within a brand tend to be more satisfied overall than single-unit owners. All North America-based franchise companies were invited to participate in the free franchise satisfaction study. Franchisees answered questions ranking their franchise in the areas of financial opportunity, training and support, leadership, operations and product development, core values, general satisfaction, and the franchisee community.
In addition to providing multiple revenue streams, other advantages of the Interstate All Battery Center franchise program are high unit volumes, low employee count and high employee retention.
“We are the leading source in defining the replacement battery business,” said Eades. “Interstate All Battery Center has created a dynamic relationship with our retail customers and business-to-business clients that leads the industry in customer satisfaction ratings.”
The Franchise Business Review report is designed to help prospective franchisees research multi-unit franchise opportunities, and it looks closely at the factors that make a brand a good choice for multi-unit ownership. Interstate All Battery Center is an example from the study illustrating a proven track record for growing and supporting successful multi-unit owners.
