Full service mobile bike shop Beeline Bikes has signed five new franchise agreements, something that will result in 25 new mobile shops across eight territories.
Resulting in the brand’s most successful quarter of sign ups to date, the 25 new mobile shops will open across Colorado, Texas and California, as well as entering Indiana for the first time. The new shops will expand the brand’s current U.S. fleet to more than 60 mobile shops.
The eight new Beeline Bikes territories include Austin, TX; Fort Collins, CO; Indianapolis, IN; Tucson, AZ; and Los Angeles, Sacramento, San Diego, Berkeley/Oakland, CA.
“Beeline has grown rapidly and the momentum continues to build as fulfillment of bikes purchased online becomes a significant additional Mobile Bike Shop revenue stream,” said Pete Buhl, Beeline Bikes founder and CEO. “I’ve been pleased by the success and acceptance of our brand and innovative approach to the market, and I’ve been humbled by the caliber of discussions we are having with great prospective partners throughout the U.S. I look forward to continued expansion throughout the U.S. as we bring expert service and bike fulfillment to delighted customers throughout the country.”
As the exclusive fulfillment partner of Accell North America, owners of the Raleigh and Diamondback brands, Beeline continues to see massive growth in delivery of its direct to consumer bike sales and fulfillment segment.
“The expectation of the modern consumer is changing rapidly. They expect to be able to purchase where they want, when they want and how they want. Together with Beeline, we are committed to being a leader in meeting the consumers’ needs and being an innovator in the cycling industry. By partnering with Beeline, we can ensure a great initial experience with the delivery of a professionally assembled bicycle, and then ensure a great ongoing experience through Beeline’s services,” said Chris Speyer, CEO of Accell North America. “Beeline has already assembled, delivered and set up thousands of bikes for our customers, and the feedback has been
