Velofix, the largest Bike Shop network across North America is excited toannounce the sale of multiple Franchise territory(s) in North Carolina, the upcoming launch of Madison, Wisconsin and the recently launched Mobile Shops in the following California locations - Sonoma, Corona, Upland as well as Eugene/Bend Oregon, multiple locations in Southern Connecticut and Halifax, Canada.

Todd Hudson is a USAF veteran and has purchased territory locations in the Charlotte area and sees velofix as the future of the bike industry “I have dreamed of owning my own shop for years. With so many brick and mortar shops closing, I believe the velofix model is the future”.

This continued growth enables velofix to leverage the size of the Mobile fleet to create more revenue opportunities for Franchise Partners and to provide more delivery and service locations for their valued Bike manufacturer partners.

“Our goal continues to be to provide a premium, consistent service to our customers” said velofix CEO and co-founder Chris Guillemet. “Our Franchise Partners are rich with diverse talent from wellknown industry veterans to local community leaders. With 25% + “same store” sales growth in 2018

we have the opportunity to further expand with new Franchise owners in new markets as well as hiring Mechanics & Operators to increase our ability to service current markets,” Guillemet said.

velofix is now offering a $500 signing bonus for any ex. Performance Bike staff who want to stay in the bike industry and be a part of a company changing the retail model for service and delivery.

“The Bike industry is full of exceptional talent and we believe our model and direct 1 to 1 contact with our customers allows these talented people to maximize their skills” Guillemet says.

In other developments velofix has launched a grass roots 2019 Ambassador Program which includes the chance to win a Canyon Bike, a partnership with Oakley to sell product in the Mobile Shops and was named 2018 Entrepreneur of the Year (Pacific Region – Emerging) by Ernst & Young.
