Growth slated for 2012 by offering their unique Franchise Program to new store
owners and existing independent 12V Retailers.
Van Nuys, CA - Al & Ed’s Autosound has committed to company growth in 2012 with a relaunch of their exclusive Franchise Program. Members of the Al & Ed’s Autosound group benefit from access to key vendors, better pricing and much more.
“This is a great opportunity for someone wanting to start their own car audio business, or for an independent that wants to take it to another level” said John Haynes, Sr. Product Manager for Al & Ed’s. “This is the absolute easiest way to do a ground-up location, and it would be an immediate benefit to an independent shop.”
The Al & Ed’s Franchise program allows access to key product lines at preferred pricing, directed marketing, display/demo program, POS software, human resources and much more.
Gabi Mashal, President of Al & Ed’s Corporation and once a franchise owner himself, designed the program to simplify the business for a store owner.
“In our program, we try to make things as easy as we can for the store operator” said Mashal. “We support our stores with computerized inventory and point-of-sale software, allow best pricing for single unit purchasing, have an EZ Return process in place and support them in online marketing as well as local advertising that the store owner wants to do.”
“We took a little marketing break during the recessionary period these last few years” continued Haynes. “Now, we feel the time is right to open it up once again. I’d like to see our store count grow to 25 locations by year’s end, either through new build-outs or by partnering
with existing dealers.”
Originally established in 1954, Al & Ed’s Autosound is an 18-store chain located in Southern California. They have won many industry awards, are highly respected and is considered a premier retail chain by their vendors and manufacturers.
