In this episode of Sitting in a Garage with Eric, Eric Bucher was joined by Trenton Wilson Greene, owner of velofix. He's only been in business for about 8 months, but he is no stranger to the bike industry. With over 20 years of experience, he was ready to take the leap and turn his passion into a successful business.
Trenton talked about the benefits of a owning a franchise business vs. starting one on your own. From having access to bike parts wholesale to being an Amazon.com vendor, there are many good reasons for an aspiring entrepreneur to choose a franchise business.
Trenton is a happy Call Sprout customer so of course he and Eric talked about the technology that powers his business. Since Velofix is a mobile buisness, everything they need can be found in their vans including high speed internet, phones, payment processing systems and more.
Like most successful entrepreneurs who come on our show, giving back to the community is important to Trent. He enjoys supporting local riding events where he and his team set up vans and service bikes during rides.
Eric and Trent also talked about the most advanced electric bike on the market. The Elby bike is a technology infused electric bike with a BionX motor, a battery that is completely integrated into the frame, bluetooth technology and more! Check it out!
Trenton shared some great entrepreneurial advice and the importance of learning along the way. What's his favorite app? Google Maps of course.
