velofix Experiences Record Growth
North America’s largest fleet of Mobile Bike Shops rises to meet growing demand after its best year ever
velofix, North America’s largest fleet of Mobile Bike Shops rose to meet the rapidly increasing demand for the speed and convenience of mobile bike service by closing out 2016 with its strongest year to date.
velofix’s best year ever saw 300% year-over-year revenue growth, the launching of the velofix DIRECT complete bike sales program, and the establishment of key distribution partnerships with premium component manufacturers like Shimano, SRAM and FSA. Backed by a brand new website and powered by a proprietary route-optimized booking service, the leading Mobile Bike Shop platform also added 44 more Mobile Shops in 2016, bringing its coverage total to 89 franchise territories, and cementing its place as the preeminent choice for cycling needs in North America.
In addition to renewing its sponsorship of the Sea Otter velofix Gran Fondo Coastal, and the Axeon Pro Cycling Team in 2017, velofix will also be carrying plenty of this momentum into the new year, with key markets like Chicago, Washington DC, Las Vegas, and the entire state of Minnesota set to launch between January and February. “We stayed on the gas and really never let up all year, which has put us in a great position to start looking into further growth opportunities in Europe,” says velofix co-founder Chris Guillemet. “It also serves as a pretty confident reminder that quality, convenience and premium service represent the future of the modern bike shop, and we’re proud to be setting that bar.”
