Batteries Plus Finalizes 6-Unit Franchise Agreement in Louisiana

June 20, 2024 // // ALEXANDRIA, La. - Batteries Plus recently welcomed its latest signed agreement for the development of six new units in the state of Louisiana.

Friends and business partners, Duane Carmouche, Mitch Matthews and Mohamad Zeidan, will own and operate the six stores across the state. Carmouche, who is Alexandria born and raised, is continuing his entrepreneurial journey with Batteries Plus after spending the last 20 years as a Jani King franchisee. Prior to his investment as a franchisee, he spent 16 years in law enforcement as a police officer and federal corrections officer.

“We are excited to join the Batteries Plus family,” said Carmouche. “There is nothing like this in the area currently, and we are ready to make Batteries Plus a staple within the community.”

Matthews began his career at 17 in the oil fields before become a car salesman in 2016. He worked his way up to become general manager. Additionally, Matthews has been an entrepreneur in his own right through opening an insurance agency, car lot and Stor-More Portable Buildings.

“When my daughter needed a car battery in 2023, I sent her to the local Batteries Plus in Carencro and was impressed with their service and product selection,” added Matthews. “Our expertise, combined with our plethora of products and services, will put us in a position to power our customer’s lives to meet every need.”

Since moving to the Alexandria community in 2002, Zeidan has owned and operated two used car dealerships.

“I am thrilled to be a part of helping to grow the Alexandria community, the place I’ve called home for the last two decades,” added Zeidan.

Of the six locations, the trio is anticipating the first to open in Alexandria by the end of 2024.

“We’re thrilled to have Duane, Mitch and Mohamad join our franchise system and to grow the Batteries Plus brand in Louisiana,” added Joe Malmuth, Chief Development Officer.
