Our History

Pedal Pub® started the first party bike business in the United States in April of 2007.

Pedal Pub® co-founders Eric Olson and Al Boyce saw a photo of the Fietscafe® party bike from the Netherlands in an email from a friend and took a leap of faith that the party bike concept would work in America.

In 2017, the business was sold to Proprietors Capital Holdings and in 2018, franchising began.


Our manufacturer, Het Fietscafe® from Stroe, Netherlands, invented the party bike concept in 1997.

Brothers Zwier and Henk Van Laar were challenged with finding a unique way to promote a bar in the local Queen’s Day parade.  Their solution was simple – to engineer a rolling pub.

The first draft of their design was sketched on the back of a bar napkin.  Seventeen years later, that bike is still on the road.  Their continued experience has led them to manufacturing the most durable and feature-rich party bikes in the world.

Since 1997 they have since built hundreds of Fietscafe® brand party bikes, from their new, state-of-the-art factory in Stroe.  They are manufacturing party bikes for customers in many different countries – making them the most popular party bike in the world.

Why Pedal Pub?

All franchising opportunities are not created equal. If you want the potential for financial success combined with a fun and adventurous lifestyle, then mobile entertainment is where you want to be. And within that space, Pedal Pub is miles ahead of the party bike copycats.

A Fun & Rewarding Experience. Our franchisees love what they do and can’t wait to get out of bed in the morning. Pedal Pub is an experiential company, and owning a Pedal Pub franchise delivers a far more unique experience than owning a brick-and-mortar business.

The “Kleenex” of the Industry. In a world of imitators, Pedal Pub is the original U.S. party bike. We set the standard, and we continue to raise the bar.

Experience & Quality. We’ve logged millions of tour hours, so we can help you navigate all the ins and outs of the business. As the people who brought the original Fietscafe® party bike to the U.S., we only put only the highest-quality and longest-lasting vehicles on the road. And with our Pilot Certification Program, no one puts better-trained pilots on their bikes.

A Sky-High Ceiling. The party bike industry is booming. With 33 franchise locations open, in development, and growing, Pedal Pub invented the space and leaves its competitors in the dust. As more cities realize the economic benefits of mobile entertainment, we’ll continue to lower the barriers to success.

Corporate Account Sales Program. We’ve created a system to book corporate team-building and other tours across the country, delivering more business to your front door.

Unmatched Buying Power. From booking software to signage and merchandise, we’ve got the negotiating leverage. We get the discounts. We lower your cost of doing business. We constantly work to improve your profitability.

A Better Bottom Line. Backed by investors who believe in the party bike space, Pedal Pub offers you a great franchising opportunity. And it starts now.
