How to finance

Since the estimated total for Batteries Plus is on the more costly side, we recommend following these steps to get fully financed:
  1. Go to the Batteries Plus franchising website and review its financial requirements, including cash-on-hand requirements.
  2. Reach out to Batteries Plus about in-house financing for franchisees.
  3. If in-house financing isn't available, look for online loans, bank loans and SBA loans to help meet the $283,340 estimated opening costs.
  4. Compare lenders based on amounts, interest rates and what types of personal and business credit history they accept.
  5. Once you settle on a lender, gather all required documents, including account statements and assets.
  6. Apply for financing online or in person as required by the lender.

What types of financing is available?

You have several options when it comes to financing a Batteries Plus — even if the cost is on the heavier side. What assets you have available will largely determine how much you need to borrow, and which option suits you best.
  • Online loan. A number of online business lenders offer amounts up to $1 million, with some extending up to $5 million.
  • Bank loan. Your personal credit will typically need to at least be good — 670 or higher — when it comes to getting a bank loan large enough to cover a significant portion of Batteries Plus opening costs.
  • SBA loan. While your personal credit score doesn't need to be as good to qualify for an SBA loan, they usually cost more than standard term loans from banks or online lenders.
Also check if Batteries Plus franchise financing is available. You may be able to get some of the costs covered for less than you would with other traditional funding options.
