FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
1000s of Electric Bike and Electric Skateboard Shops to Open Across the U.S.
Verona, NJ. September 2017 – The Electric Spokes Company is New Jersey’s largest electric bike and e-scooter dealer drawing customers from Maine to North Carolina to its flagship store since opening in 2015. With U.S. E-Bike sales expected to top 30 million this year, the Electric Spokes Company is proud to announce the launch of its franchise company, Voltaire Cycles.
Voltaire Cycles’ franchises offers entrepreneurs, investors, and new business owners an unprecedented opportunity to own a first-of-its-kind retail business in the emerging market of e-mobility. Demand for electric bikes and other similar types of electric assisted cycles has never been higher. Recent announcements of new e-bike designs by major motor companies like Audi, Ford, and BMW has fueled the already warming alternative energy market. E-bike sales rose from $15 million in 2015 to $28 million in the U.S. for 2016. Global projections estimate e-bike sales worldwide to grow into a multi-billion-dollar industry by 2025. Currently, more e-bikes are sold than any other electric powered vehicle in the world.
A Voltaire Cycles’ franchise offers consumers the complete package – from sales to service. No other retail franchise provides as diversity of product and manufactures in an emerging market as uniquely as Voltaire Cycles. “Until recently, small electric vehicles were a niche industry that would occasionally appear at big box retailers or in gadget magazines during the holidays” says company CEO, Derek Mithaug. “The ever-increasing concern about our planet, recent advances in battery and energy storage capabilities, and new designs of e-vehicles like e-bikes, and e-scooters are drawing a much bigger audience”.
The new Voltaire Cycles franchise offers consumers an enormous selection of choices. Taking a test ride is one of the biggest attraction for many customers. “If there is any doubt about what these e-vehicles are all about,” says the company’s communication director Jamie Gilson. “We take them on a test ride. The sale is almost always made at the end of that ride. The impact of the first-ride experience is tremendous”.
Each Voltaire Cycles franchisee undergoes extensive training in the care, maintenance and support of e-mobility vehicles. Dedicated Voltaire Cycles Service Technicians are awarded certifications at every level of their training. Customers are quick to recognize the knowledge and the “safety-first” culture of a Voltaire Cycles franchise. “The service department is one of the most reassuring aspects for consumers who are nearing that decision to invest $1,000+ on a new e-bike or e-scooter” says company COO Mark Baraniak. Customers frequently ask what service is provided after the make this purchase. “Can I bring it back if something goes wrong?” “Does Voltaire Cycles handle repairs?” “Does Voltaire Cycles offer financing?” “Does Voltaire Cycles take trade-ins?” These are a few of the questions that are addressed with a Voltaire Cycles franchise.
The Voltaire Cycles’ franchise program was developed by Franchise Creator, a Miami-based franchise consulting firm, led by Hossein Kasmai, a well-recognized name in the franchise industry. “The franchise world is hungry for fresh ideas & innovation and Electric Spokes/Voltaire Cycles provides a unique concept that is poised for rapid growth”, said Hossein Kasmai, the CEO of Franchise Creator. “We anticipate Voltaire Cycles to quickly become one of the most desired franchise programs in the market”, added Mr. Kasmai.
