LONG BEACH, CA (08.10.2016) – Al & Ed’s Autosound has opened a new location in Long Beach, CA on Saturday, August 6. Al & Ed’s is a franchise-based model, whereby stores are independently owned and operated, but operate under a turn-key infrastructure and supported by varied advertising and brand marketing.
The Long Beach location, formerly LB Audio Shop, is a “conversion” location, switching over to Al & Ed’s to take the store to the next level.
“Al & Ed’s Autosound provides our Franchisees with a supportive structure of brands, operational support, marketing and more.” says John Haynes. “It is the easiest way to own and operate a mobile electronics location, allowing our owners to focus on what the do best… sell and install.”
The Grand Opening was supported with demo cars from Alpine and Rockford-Fosgate, local morning radio host Romeo and the Goodfellas with a live remote, TV personality Anthony Campos and was catered by Tacos Take-2. Many show cars from Al & Ed’s Autosound locations were there to support the new Franchisee. It was marketed through email and social media posting, as well as local print support.
“I had what I would call a successful operation in LB Audio Shop,” stated Efrin Gonzalez, Franchisee. “Once the Al & Ed’s switch was turned on, I saw an immediate lift in business. The two days after I was live on the website’s store locator, I had six customers who came in specifically from our website. In addition, I have full access to brands I couldn’t get before. It’s awesome.”
The Long Beach location is Al & Ed’s 14th owner-operated store.
“We’re always looking for good candidates who can represent our brand well and want to take their store to the next level,” stated John Haynes.
