EuroMini was a great name we started with, but we ran into trademark challenges. A business has to be flexible in order to keep growing to serve its customers. Rather than spending time and resources to push forward with the name, we decided to focus on serving our customers instead. This has paid off since ZiZZO has the highest customer satisfaction rating than any other bicycles (including regular bikes) on Amazon.
It was important that our new name continues with some European heritage, which affirms our mission: “Merging Europe’s cycling everywhere, all-the-time culture with America’s fun-loving and recreational lifestyle.”
After brainstorming and having plenty of team discussions we thought:
"well our bikes fold like scissors", and “they're the new hot fun bike to ride . . . some might say ‘sizzling fun’.”
"How about Sizzor?"
"No, no, take out the 'r' . . . maybe change the 's' to a 'z' since ‘z’ is popular among some European languages" . . . “This will be our way to spell sizzle”
"YES, we'll be ZiZZO!"
And once we came up with that fun wordplay, we were eager to make the switch over.
To keep continuity, we started with ZiZZO by Euromini bikes. And after a few months, we decided to just make the full transition to ZiZZO bikes.
It's been a bit confusing for those who were first introduced to our bikes by the name EuroMini.
However, there is no misunderstanding that we have to continue to improve our bikes and add new models due to popular demands. Due to our meticulous quality control (QC) standards, the demand for ZiZZO bikes has been doubling every year.
All this to say ...
No, the company Euromini/ZiZZO is not stoping or cutting productions.
