Season 1 Episode 112: Changing the World One Mobile Bike Shop at a Time
When Chris Guillemet realized his bike would be sitting in the shop for at least a week, he knew something had to give.
As an avid marathon runner and triathlete, Chris couldn't afford the inconvenience and wait time that's expected in a typical bike shop. So he combined his business acumen and love of cycling with his business partners to create a business model where cyclists can have the bike shop come to them.
Launched in Vancouver, BC, Velofix is now growing across North America as a fleet of mobile bike shops offering premium, expert service anywhere a customer needs them.
