Charles was the first outside investor in velofix, which started in 2013 with just one mobile bike pro shop in Vancouver.

Today, velofix is recognized as one of the Fastest Growing Franchises and Top New Franchises of 2017. With 85 trucks on the road across North America, and sights set on 300+ by 2019, they have now sold over 120¬†Franchises with a target of 150 by end of 2017. There’s no wonder why velofix has been called “one of the most impressive mobile franchises”!
