LOCAL OWNERS BACK ERINA’S FUTURE AS NEW BATTERY WORLD FRANCHISE PARTNER
Erina locals Deana and Kent Carr announced they have taken over as new owners of Battery World at 202 The Entrance Road following an extensive evaluation by the couple into the potential of the franchise to create jobs and adequately service the area.
The purchase of an existing store during the height of the pandemic was not a deterrent and both said they were excited to become more involved in the local community.
Kent has previous franchise experience, having been a part of the Jim’s Group for four years, and is excited to take on a completely different business on the central coast. “I’ve worked in the franchise industry for four years, so I know a thing or two about culture and brand quality. I’ve heard only good things about Battery World and after considerable research and discussions about our options, we love the Battery World approach due to its brand culture and high quality of products and services offered,” he said.
Kent said they wanted to get more involved in the community by supporting local sport.
“Battery World is proud to sponsor Gosford Hockey Club and we’re keen to consider how to get more involved in the community. Battery World’s General Manager Johnny Kennedy said he was proud to see the increased confidence in the Battery World brand and investment in strengthening local community engagement.
“Even through all the uncertainty it’s exciting to see our local stores backed by local owners,” Mr Kennedy said.
