Mobile repair service signs up 20 franchises throughout the Western US.

SAN CARLOS, Calif. (BRAIN) — Mobile repair service Beeline Bikes has opened its first two franchises and has signed a total of 20 franchises to date in markets including Denver and Boulder, Colorado; Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona; Los Angeles; the San Francisco Bay Area; and Northern California's Napa Valley.

Beeline's first franchisee-owned mobile bike shops went live in late 2015 in the East Bay area of San Francisco and the Conejo Valley northwest of Los Angeles. Beeline's Phoenix franchisee will go live in mid-January, followed soon after by Denver and Boulder, Colorado, and Marin, Napa and Sonoma, California.

"The momentum is building," said Pete Buhl, co-founder and CEO of Beeline Bikes, "We're increasingly working with multi-unit franchisee partners to build out fleets of mobile bike shops for large regional markets. Our franchisee partners have an aligned vision of building a profitable, sustainable business while delivering an amazing customer experience. The net result is getting more people riding bikes and enabling the bicycle mechanics who operate Beeline shops to earn a good livelihood in an industry they are passionate about."

Beeline also operates eight company-owned and repair vans. Six of those call on customers in the Bay Area, while the other two serve as marketing and training vehicles.
