The Electric Spokes Corporation is proud to offer franchise opportunities under the name Voltaire Cycles. A Voltaire Cycles Franchise provides an extraordinary opportunity to partner with a e-bike leader in a new industry with forecast sales growth in the multi billions over the next 10 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 unlike any other. 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 yet unrealized growth available for the smart e-bike franchisee entrepreneur.
Voltaire Cycles Franchise Opportunities
We offer two different types of franchise opportunities. You can choose to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own Voltaire Cycles Franchise in a protected territory of your choice. We also offer area development franchise for those looking to lock down a larger territory and slowly build a series of Voltaire Cycles locations/territories. Currently, we have Voltaire Cycles franchises in New Jersey, Colorado, Oregon, and soon, California.
