What is Franchising?

The extraordinary business system that offers small businesses the opportunity to start a business, develop it and consolidate it, while minimizing investment and enjoying the great benefits of the economies of scale realized by joining a large group.


Data from recent research, showed that businesses opened under Franchise have prospects of success beyond 5 years after opening, amounting to about the 95%, compared with 35 percent for independent and self-employed businesses.


We can therefore state that the FRANCHISE is undoubtedly the distribution system that most guarantees the entrepreneur in terms of SAFETY and COMPETITIVENESS.


E-BIKE TRAVEL is the first franchising network for the rental and sale of e-bikes in Italy. To date, it has 12 stores already operational and 5 about to open soon.

E-BIKE TRAVEL provides its Affiliates, a "Turnkey" package, which helps them to face without anxieties and worries every operational phase of the business and guarantees them the supply of the best brands of bicycles and accessories, with the most convenient discounts and granting high margins and excellent profit opportunities.


E-BIKE TRAVEL invests large capital to increase visibility and brand awareness nationwide and to enable its Affiliates to be consistently ranked in the top positions of search engines and promoting their business locally.

Joining the network E-BIKE TRAVEL means immediately sharing the brand awareness and prestige built and established over time, immediately becoming a reference point for all those who intend to rent or buy an e-bike.

E-BIKE TRAVEL is the right choice for those who want to improve their working condition, to those who have decided to start their own business, to those who want to increase their earnings, to those who want to join an industry with the highest growth rate worldwide. 


Sustainable mobility has begun an unstoppable development process and the effects of the pandemic have contributed to an acceleration of the phenomenon and, according to the forecasts of three European cycling associations (ECF, Conebi and Cycling Industries Europe), in the next ten years the European citizens will purchase, thanks also to the impressive investments planned by the EU, a total of 10 million more bicycles per year, thus reaching a figure of 30 million units sold in 2030, marking a +47% compared to 2019 and bringing sales of bikes to represent more than double the number of cars currently registered in the European Union each year.

The growth trend concerns the entire two-wheel market, but it is the world of e-bikes that represents the segment with the most significant growth, which, according to forecasts, will go from 3.7 million units sold in 2019 to 17 million in 2030, with the aim of reaching 10 million e-bikes sold starting from 2024.

A survey of State of Nation by Shimano, highlighted that 30% of Italians, after the first lockdown, declared themselves interested in purchasing an e-bike, compared to a European average of 17%.

The choice of potential cyclists is motivated by the possibility of easily overcoming climbs and long distances (32%), the desire to improve one's physical (30%) and mental (22%) performance and the desire to reduce the environmental impact of one's vehicle transport (18%).


The detailed analysis of the data highlights how in European countries with higher penetration rates, the electric bicycle is used mostly by a non-sporting public, who use the vehicle to carry out activities related to everyday life and for trips out of town, tours organized and alternative holidays.


The Italian data highlights, however, a use of e-bikes mainly by a competitive public who uses the vehicle to carry out sporting activities.


This data therefore allows us to understand how great the growth margin of this "non-sports" market is, which involves ordinary people who will use the e-bike to carry out their daily activities and for cycle tourism.
