Franchises

Inquire and learn about being part of one of the fastest growing industries today. In the U.S alone, demand for batteries is expected to reach $16.8 billion in 2012.  The battery industry is essentially recession proof. Provided any economic climate, people will always need batteries. In fact, the average American household has 20 battery operated appliances. More than ever, people are depending on battery operated technologies such as tablets and smart phones to perform in their career related industry. Future innovations will require the people to become even more dependent on batteries, both chargeable and non-rechargeable, for daily functions. Rechargeable batteries don’t last forever, and people constantly misplace their laptop and cell phone chargers.

At Battery City, Inc. we provide alkaline batteries, camcorder batteries, cellular and mobile phone batteries, cordless phone batteries, digital camera batteries, flashlights, laptop batteries and chargers, photo, rechargeable, sealed lead acid, two way radio and watch batteries. We truly are the one stop shop when it comes to batteries. We pride ourselves on superior customer service as we know how difficult it can be to find the right battery. After 16 years of strong sales in an emerging industry, we are excited to announce our franchising opportunities. We are looking to align with strategic partners who recognize the current and future value of the battery industry so that we can provide our exceptional services around the United States. We are confident in our future success and ready to share it with others. If you are ready to tap into the market or want to know more about our company, please email Benjamin Lee at ben@batterycity.com.

Benjamin Lee, CEO / Co-Founder

Benjamin Lee credits his vibrant business savvy and enduring work ethic to his early years “toiling” his way up in the “family business”, where he gained 15 invaluable years working in all facets of sales in the battery and consumer electronic arena.  One striking example of his foresight is urging his father, Harry Lee, to invest in a virtually unknown product at that time in the mid 90’s – the first version of the Ni-Mh (Nickel Metal Hydride) Rechargeable AA and  AAA cell batteries. These batteries were initially brought out in the market by Toshiba but set at a very high price point.  Toshiba was not successfully marketing these new products and wanted to unload their entire U.S. inventory.  Ben implored his dad to buy out Toshiba’s complete west coast stock and inventory. Within the course of one year, Battery City, Inc. had sold over 75,000 Ni-MH battery cells and almost 15,500 chargers at a price less than 1/3 of the original retail price. NiMh batteries became an instant success among digital camera enthusiasts, and Battery City, Inc. became the “toast” of digital camera online chat rooms, with tens of thousands of hits in the days before Battery City even had a semi-workable website.  Since those early days, Ben’s dad has consistently operated the business from a small, retail storefront, creating a strong loyal clientele based on personal service but  investing in little to none marketing strategies.  It would be foreseeable that father-son clashes would be inevitable, especially considering Ben’s considerable sales and computer-savvy skills.  In light of Harry’s imminent retirement, Ben has decided to take the “bull by the horn” with his father’s blessings, and take the business into the 21st century, to the place where he had always envisioned the business go.
