Bicycle supply chain issues

South Carolina Business Review

One area of the small business world that has been particularly hard hit by the supply chain problems caused by the pandemic is bicycle shops. Bikes and their parts are still in short supply. So an American company that makes these parts should be pretty busy.

Mike Switzer interviews Nicole Boyd, co-owner of Boyd Cycling in Greenville, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
