Southwestern retailer Jason Boles opens Beeline Bikes franchise in Los Angeles

Published February 5, 2018

SAN CARLOS, Calif. (BRAIN) — Jason Boles, who owns The Velo bike shop in Phoenix, Arizona, has launched a Beeline Bikes mobile repair franchise in Los Angeles. Boles also has signed franchise development agreements with Beeline in other regions of Arizona and California.

"Bicycling has been a lifelong passion of mine, and when I found the business opportunity with Beeline Bikes, I was thrilled to join such a unique concept that allows me to continue to pursue entrepreneurship in the cycling industry," said Boles. "As the owner of a boutique bike shop and Beeline Bikes of Phoenix, I'm looking forward to serving the increasingly mobile LA community. Los Angeles is an enormous metropolitan (area) where many rely on bicycles as their main mode of transportation and don't want to deal with the traffic and hassle of taking their bikes to the shop for repairs."

Boles has been involved in racing and cycling for more than 20 years, and was team captain of the Northern Arizona University cycling team from 1993-1997. Before joining Beeline Bikes, he owned and operated insurance agencies throughout Arizona and was a multistate territory sales manager for a national insurance carrier. In 2015 he opened The Velo, a boutique bike shop located in the Downtown Phoenix Art District. 

Beeline Bikes was founded in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2013. Accell North America and Backcountry.com are both investors in the business, which is currently offering franchise opportunities in all 50 states. More information at BeelineBikes.com.
