Let’s talk about cycling.
We believe that cycling is the most enjoyable way to move around. It keeps you on the ground and is good for your health. It is good for the air you breathe and can save the whole damn planet. That’s why we think cycling is for everyone. Cycling is for kids and adults, men and women, joyriders, exercisers, feel-good pedalers and Sunday cruisers.
But, there is a slight problem. Maintaining and repairing a bike can be problematic for many bike owners. Why?
- The bike shop can be too distant and difficult to reach
- Bike shop opening hours might not meet customer needs
- Bike shops often have long queues – lasting even weeks
- Bike shop customer service can be poor
- Services can be complicated to buy and the pricing unclear
In addition, people might not have enough time, energy, skills or a suitable place to maintain their own bike.
We believe bike owners deserve better. That’s why we created Yeply’s mobile bike shop to solve this problem.
Yeply began when two old friends – a motivated engineer and an enthusiastic designer – crossed paths in 2016. After some business case models and analyses they saw potential in servicing bikes close to customers by using a factory-like process. This led to Yeply’s founding and the first Yeply van being introduced to the market. After successful proof of concept, Yeply started to look for growth. With the aid of the first angel investor and TEKES Tempo financing, two new vans were added and the first version of the Yeply digital platform was developed to support the operational business.
2017 saw a 402% growth in business and the first international pilot projects were conducted in Germany and Holland. 2017 also saw further development of the concept and platform, the trialling of B2B sales and the developing of a model for franchising – which will be the key for future rapid expansion.
In 2018, after having serviced nearly 6000 bikes in greater Helsinki metropolitan area, worked over 50 B2B service days, having attained a 4.9 star rating in Facebook reviews and being recognized by multiple influential Nordic media, such as Kauppalehti and Hufvudstadsbladet, the concept is finally ready to be launched across markets in Europe.
