Business Description
Overview
Since it opened in Leicester city centre in 2013, Ebike Centres quickly established itself as one of the leading electric bike specialists in the Midlands, offering a wide range of quality brands. The in-store workshop, staffed by trained mechanics, also caters to a large local cyclist community.
The business is rated as excellent by it's own customers, with the following review scores:
Facebook: 5 / 5 (19 reviews)
Google+: 4.9 / 5 (12 reviews)
The business is highly regarded by its suppliers, and maintains strong elationships with local authorities and institutions.

Location
Situated in a prominent location on a busy high street in Leicester city centre. A large glass frontage faces onto a single lane one-way street with wide pavements and a dedicated cycle lane which is used as a major commuter route by cyclists.
The shop is passed by thousands of pedestrians every day to access the town centre, shops, restaurants and places of work.
The surrounding businesses range from supermarkets and mixed retail, to popular bars, restaurants and hotels. This ensures a busy day and night time economy.
The business benefits from an adjacent network of quiet one way streets and steep hills, providing an excellent test route for electric bikes.

Staff
The business is staffed by one part time mechanic and an owner / manager. The mechanic are fully trained and qualified, and also takes an active role in bike sales and test rides.

Income streams
Income comes mainly from sales of electric bikes, as well as bicycle repairs, servicing and accessories. The business is regarded as a ‘destination store’ for ebikes and attracts customers up to a radius of 50 miles and beyond.
Whilst there is an inevitable lift in bike sales during the summer months, this is not at the expense of winter trade. Cycle servicing and repair income is steady throughout the year as the local area is densely populated, with a lot of large employers nearby.

Future potential
Electric bikes are the fastest growing sector of the cycle market today. The UK lags a few years behind the rest of Europe, but the pattern is set and most industry experts expect a sustained period of growth in the coming years.
This business has established itself as a highly regarded specialist with a reputation for great service, and maintains excellent relationships with its suppliers.
Despite the fact that many of the business’ products rank towards the top of the first page of Google, online sales currently make up only a small part of the turnover. This is a potentially lucrative channel of sales for a future owner.
