Batteries Plus Finalizes Agreement for Long Island Expansion
September 22, 2022 // Franchising.com // Long Island, NY - Batteries Plus recently welcomed their newest signed agreement for the development of 3 new units in Long Island, New York.
Dominick and Joe Loccisano, brothers and business partners, invested in Batteries Plus after having spent 17-years working alongside one another in the restaurant industry. In that time, they’ve been able to establish a variety of local namesakes, including Villaggio Bistro, Sangrias Latin Restaurant, Sangaritas Tapas Restaurant, and more.
As the pandemic cast a spotlight on the economic fragility of the restaurant sector, the brothers were compelled to rethink the diversity of their investments and long-term viability of the market.
“The restaurant business has the tendency to consume your entire life. Coupled with the skyrocketing cost of labor and overhead, it’s just become a difficult beast to manage and constantly adapt with,” said Dominick Loccisano. “That’s largely why Batteries Plus appealed to us"
As individuals and businesses become increasingly dependent on battery power, it’s important to provide communities with ready access to the batteries they rely on. And that’s the role the Loccisano’s are looking to fill, providing for the energy needs of Long Island residents and businesses.
“We’re in the early stages of searching out the best real estate for our first location and are already envisioning what the brand’s footprint in the area will look like over the next 5 years,” said Joe Loccisano. “There’s plenty of work ahead and lessons to be learned, but I feel this most recent deal is just the start of what our involvement with Batteries Plus will entail as we continue to move forward.”
