Meet The Owners

He can change car batteries in his sleep, help you power your caravan, even make sure your mobile is well-charged but there’s one job Vince Petruzzella was not prepared for – Australia’s unlikeliest sex symbol.

The Battery World Parafield franchisee became the national face for the specialised battery retailer in ads across the country in 2015, with the campaign continuing in 2016 - and along the way garnered attention from the ladies.

Battery World was looking for a genuine franchisee and someone customers could identify with and Vince was a hit from the start.

The married father has laughed off the attention but admitted his daughter was most thrilled with his newfound fame.

Vince has owned Battery World stores in SA since 2005.  The Parafield store swung open its door in March 2016 becoming the networks’ 89th store nationally.

Vince grew up around his family owned and run service stations so it is no wonder he became a mechanic. Vince was a Patrolman for seven years with the Royal Automobile Association of South Australia (RAASA), so his knowledge  of Cars, 4WD’s is unparalleled in the Battery industry.

From supplying batteries to the volunteer coastguard, to fundraising for Camp Quality, Bravehearts, drought relief for farmers and autism research. Vince really cares about the community he lives and works in.
