Meet the Owner of KD Cycles, LLC
Adam Scofield is the owner and technician of KD CYCLES, one of the many small businesses in Surprise AZ. Adam is originally from Toledo, Ohio. He moved to Arizona in 2008 to attend school. As much as he loved it in Arizona, he began to feel homesick after a few years and made the journey back to Ohio. Just like all one time visitors, it didn’t take long for Adam to realize that Arizona was his new home and where he wanted to be. Adam and his family ended up making the final decision to move back to the Valley of the Sun with his wife, and their son.
Before becoming one of the many owners of small businesses in Surprise AZ, Adam worked at a shop as a technician just on the other side of the street where his own shop is now. About after a month of hard work, dedication, and long hours every night Adam began to feel very taken advantage of. He never received the appreciation necessary to continue working in a shop with such a negative atmosphere. Adam then realized that after giving so much of his hard work and dedication he was not gaining anything.
He finally realized it was his time to make his own dreams a reality. After leaving his job Adam filed all papers to establish KD Cycles, LLC in May of 2013. Over the next year worked continued to roll in. As he continued to grow, he was able to purchase new equipment and hire on more staff. In the last two years Adam employees 3 full-time certified technicians and also a handful of part-time helpers to ensure business continues to run smoothly. His hard work, dedication, and long hours has now brought success for himself, his family, his employees, and small businesses in Surprise AZ.
Their Keys to Success
“We like to make customers feel at home and part of the family. Bikers are attached to their bikes, so when it’s in the shop they want to know who is working on it, and what exactly is wrong with it. We encourage our customers to meet the mechanic who will be working on their bike, so they can build a one on one relationship. Our door is always open to our customers during time of repair. We welcome our customers into the shop anytime to check on their bike whether its on the lift or not. This is a great opportunity for the customer to know hands on exactly what the problem is and our solution to fix it. It It gives them the piece of mind that they are getting takin care of and not being takin advantage of. Good honest work brings customers back again and again, and that’s what makes us successful.” -Adam Scofield
