“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.
