Battery Giant Franchise, LLC celebrated the official grand opening of Arizona’s first franchise store on Saturday, December 10, 2011. The day was a tremendous success according to new store owners and partners, Dave and Janeen Tometich, and Ron Savage. "It was such a perfect and exciting day! The weather couldn't have been any better, and it was great to see such an amazing turnout for this area. We have already seen return customers from our grand opening day that have expressed their loyalty to Battery Giant and our store,” said the Tometich’s. The partners selected the prime storefront location of 2880 E. Germann Rd, Suite 11 in Chandler, Arizona, just outside of Phoenix, for their new Battery Giant store.
With former ties to the Midwest, Dave and Janeen bring their combined employment skills and experiences to their new business. Dave has a background in the battery industry and will function as Partner and DC Power Specialist at the store, while Janeen will oversee all company marketing initiatives as the Marketing Manager. “They have certainly assembled an excellent team, and this team will really make a difference in the battery retail business in Phoenix. They have a great location supported by a knowledgeable team with great products and the retail knowhow - truly a recipe for success,” states Kurt H. Smith, CEO of Battery Giant, who was in attendance for the grand opening day celebration.
The Chandler store set a new record high of 75 watch battery replacements for a single day at their grand opening, and was a top performer for sales revenue for a grand opening day within the chain of Battery Giant locations for 2011. Store Manager, Tomica Duvall commented, “I could not have asked for a better day. It was incredibly rewarding to have so many people within the community take time from their day to celebrate this moment with us." Philanthropically minded, the Chandler store team also decided to raise money for the Tumbleweed Center for Youth Development during the grand opening day celebration. In addition to the money raised, they also donated 18% of their net opening day sales to the charity. Tumbleweed serves troubled, neglected, and abused at-risk youth in the Phoenix community.
