Pearle Vision Seeks To Sell Eye Care Centers in Puerto Rico

Pearle Vision plans to convert 11 of its neighborhood eye care centers in Puerto Rico from company-owned to licensee-owned. Locations are immediately available in Fajardo, Aguadilla, San Juan and Bayamon, as well as other markets located throughout the state.

The company is currently seeking qualified candidates interested in owning and operating their very own Pearle Vision to purchase an existing location with a thriving customer base. This is part of Pearle Vision's 2014 expansion plans to re-license 40 to 45 additional company-owned centers.

"Pearle Vision is poised to continue growing this year and has aggressive plans to convert corporate-owned neighborhood eye care centers to licensees," said Tammy Reaves, vice president of licensing and development at Pearle Vision. "We are seeking optometrists and opticians across Puerto Rico who have a desire to serve their communities and provide the best possible eye care to their patients to join our growing network of licensed operators." 

Opportunities are available for qualified licensees throughout Puerto Rico. The specific location of centers Pearle Vision is looking to convert to licensed ownership, include:

  • Fajardo (Fajardo, Puerto Rico)
  • Aguadilla Mall (Aguadilla, Puerto Rico)
  • Plaza Del Atlantico (Arecibo, Puerto Rico)
  • Plaza Las Americas (San Juan, Puerto Rico)
  • Santa Rosa Mall (Bayamon, Puerto Rico)
  • Montehiedra Town Center (San Juan, Puerto Rico)
  • Plaza Palma Real (Humacao, Puerto Rico)
  • Plaza Del Caribe 2050 (Ponce, Puerto Rico)
  • 154 Plaza Carolina (Carolina, Puerto Rico)
  • Rexville Town Center (Bayamon, Puerto Rico)
  • Plaza Atenas Shopping Center (Manati, Puerto Rico)

Pearle Vision has a significant legacy in the industry and has continued to outpace competitors by evolving to meet patients' changing needs by offering quality products and services they desire. With 600 centers located throughout North America, the company offers best-in-class eye care provided by neighborhood doctors who are skilled optometrists, a principle created by Dr. Stanley Pearle in 1961. Most recently, Pearle Vision ranked #112 in Entrepreneur's 2014 Franchise 500, making a 48-point increase from the 2013 ranking.

To fuel further growth, the company is looking for optometrists interested in licensing opportunities. Ideal candidates for Pearle Vision ownership should possess a desire to join a trusted industry-leading brand and work within a proven system to provide exceptional eye care and superior patient service. Pearle Vision licensees can expect their initial investment to build a new center to cost approximately $200,000, in addition to a licensing fee of $30,000.
