Rhoades Car – Bucking the Trend

The SportPed by Rhoades CarCool Ride - side-by-side

The July edition of Bicycle Retailer is hot off the press.  It’s the annual bicycle industry stats issue. One article states that “The bicycle retail market remained essentially flat dollar-wise in 2011, ticking up 1.1% to $6 billion.”  It appears that many of those imported bikes from China and Taiwan are still sitting on store shelves.

Not the case at Rhoades Car!  2011 sales at Rhoades Car were up 26% versus the industry average of 1.1% and in 2012 – are you ready for this – sales are up over 60% year to date!  How can one company buck the trend like Rhoades Car?  After all, we are a 21 year old company, we manufacture a “pricey” product and our economy is in the dumpster, right?  Do you think it has anything to do with our Made-in-the-USA philosophy?  Could it be that we constantly create new products that appeal to new demographics? Maybe it’s our diverse advertising program and social media presence.  Could it be our interactive website with over 1.5 million visitors?  Do you think it has anything to do with our incredibly talented and excited staff when people call in to discuss our products?  You may have guessed the answer. It’s not just one of those reasons – it’s ALL of them combined and more!

You see, we have created a culture of fun at Rhoades Car.  We want our employees to enjoy working here, we want our website visitors to enjoy their time on our site, we want our Facebook friends to enjoy reading about Rhoades Car even if they never buy one, and we want the delivery people to enjoy delivering each and every Rhoades Car to our customers.  But our ultimate goal is for each of our customers to love their Rhoades Car! So we’ll continue to reach out to tell our story at every opportunity and hopefully, we can keep up the upward sales trend of a true Made-in-the-USA brand!

Don’t keep us a secret – please tell your friends about Rhoades Car.

It’s Time to Live the American Dream – Are You an Entrepreneur at Heart?

By Bill Pomakoy

There are all kinds of people in our country and not everyone has a dream of owning their own company or becoming self-employed. But a good portion of us do have the ambition to control our own destiny. For those of you who have ever thought of it, please read on.

Up until 16 years ago, I was very frustrated working for a mid-sized company with multiple locations that did not appreciate my talents. I remember one situation in particular where I built an entire marketing plan for a product line that had tremendous potential. Those who were in charge of that product line were oblivious to its potential – including the VP of Sales at the time! I was in a different division but I just couldn’t help myself so I submitted the idea, in full detail, to that VP of Sales. I wasn’t looking for anything in return – NOTHING! It was a no brainer, this product line could have catapulted that division to new heights and all they had to do was implement the plan I had developed for them. You know what happened? You guessed it, absolutely nothing. Several months later, I asked the VP of Sales about it.  His response?  He didn’t remember receiving it.

The handwriting was clearly on the wall – it was time to get out and control my own destiny. And I did. That was 15 years ago and now I own the most unique and incredible little company in the world – Rhoades Car – The 4-Wheel Bike That Drive Like a Car!

Are you frustrated in your career like I was? Are you looking for something to do to supplement your current income? Are you retired and looking for additional income? Are you a retailer looking for a unique new product line to bring in additional sales?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, then you need to consider becoming a Rhoades Car exclusive dealer. Our dealerships are different from other dealer opportunities because you don’t have to have a retail store to be a Rhoades Car dealer. All you need is the ambition to reach out to those in your community and bring attention to your floor models. This is the first time in 21 years that Rhoades Car has offered this opportunity – so don’t miss out. The investment is currently under $20,000.

If it’s time for you to control YOUR own destiny and live the American Dream, then act now by calling Bob Reed at 941-256-1056 or Holly Skinner at 800-531-2737 for all the details.
