JOIN THE E-REVOLUTION!
Join the e-bike revolution by owning an Voltaire Cycles franchise. Voltaire Cycles Franchises’ provide extraordinary opportunities to partner with the leading e-bike manufacturers in the world. E-Bike sales are poised to continue accelerating over the next 5 years. Last year, U.S. Electric Bike sales increased from 15 million in 2015 to 28 million in 2016 which is a fraction of the market growth happening in Europe - 200 million, and Asia, 300 million. The U.S. market is now catching up to the convenience and economies of small electric vehicle transportation. More e-bikes are sold than any other vehicle in the world!
Voltaire Cycles Franchises is an e-bike retailer founded on the principle of outstanding customer service. Our service is visionary and combines both the personal touch with the technical know-how. All franchisees and their support staff are certified bicycle technicians with advanced certification in building, diagnosing, repairing, and customizing electric bike systems.
In the next 10 years, personal electric-mobility vehicles such as e-bikes, segways, e-scooters, e-skateboards, e-powered chairs, and mopeds will be the most popular form of transportation. The need for electric mobility service and supply businesses to support this market is reaching critical mass. Few companies provide the necessary service that customers are seeking for their vehicles. Voltaire Cycles complete approach to the e-mobility market is the answer.
We have created a company that combines both style, vintage appeal, and amazing selection of e-bike products and accessories to attract the widest market possible for this new industry. We did so by paying homage to the honest American values of independence and freedom that inspired the first bicycle and motorcycle visionaries of the early 20th century. Our brand is made of rough-hewn wood, iron, and spirit. In the U.S. competition among e-bike retailers is extremely limited with few bicycle dealers willing to invest in the inventory or the service technician support to fully capitalize on substantial demand. Despite limited competition, a handful of e-bike retailers have been overwhelmed with demand for orders, service, and test-rides. Tour companies, travel agencies, municipal parks and recreation departments, police departments, postal and food delivery personnel, college students, senior living communities, beach towns, adventure trails, and more are just a few of the unrealized growth available for the smart e-bike franchisee entrepreneur.
We offer two different types of franchise opportunities: 1. A Voltaire Cycles “Core” store which features the top selling models across all brands we represent 2. The “Signature Store” model which features all models from our top 8 E-bike and E-Board manufacturers. The difference between each store is the size of the initial inventory. For a signature store, it is recommended that your retail shopping area is at least 1800 square feet.
The process for franchising begins with a training program that starts you on the road to independence. Our owner’s manual and training guide provides a day-by-day checklist and successive series of building blocks that insures your Voltaire Cycles will be open and attracting business between 90 and 120 days after signing your franchise agreement.
Voltaire Cycles Franchises offers a comprehensive and hands-on training program in order to ensure that franchisees are 100% equipped with the knowledge, skills and expertise to successfully operate their own franchise operations. You do not need any mechanical skill or electrical skill to succeed in our business. Our multi-phase training includes basic bicycle maintenance certification by the leading training provider for bicycle mechanics in the U.S. Our electric bicycle certification compliments the basic certification by preparing your technical team to troubleshoot most out-of-the-box issues. You can have complete confidence that most manufacturers are eager to work with us and provide outstanding warranty support for their products.
We go further than that! Our franchisee training program puts the retail operation of large department store into a simple point-n-touch platform. When your first shipment of products arrive, you’ll be astonished at how easy it is to input them into your pre-programmed Voltaire Cycles retail management system. We’ve designed it so that after a few introductory tutorials, you’ll be on your way teaching yourself as you build upon past successes.
Our biggest asset is our marketing program. We’ve designed a fully integrated marketing plan that incorporates the major social media platforms with your brick-n-mortar store front and website. This program is soup-to-nuts from basic search engine optimization, to setting up ad placements on customers in your region.
If you think about it, it’s tough to imagine an even better retail franchise opportunity. We’ve got the hottest products, in one of the hottest global markets, setup in a business model that takes the best of integrated retail management systems and laced it up with the latest social media marketing applications, and built a franchisee training program to learn it all in just a few weeks. It doesn’t get any better then that. But this is just rehearsal dinner. The thrill is the grins and applause of your first customers when they pedal their way up that first hill. Nothing will compare to the satisfaction you’ll experience in introducing 1000s of new riders to the benefits of e-cycling. Those first customers will likely become lasting friends because of the immense experience that an e-bike provides. We know this because we continue experiencing it. If you really want a chance at a business that deliver personal fulfillment alongside meaningful returns on your investment, then consider Voltaire Cycles Franchises.
