uBreakiFix Expands Michigan Footprint With Kalamazoo Location
KALAMAZOO, Mich., Nov. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Kalamazoo, on Nov. 15 at 4510 W Main Street. This is the brand’s tenth location in Michigan, joining stores in Bloomfield Hills, Kentwood, Sterling Heights, and Troy.
uBreakiFix services anything with a power button, including smartphones, game consoles, tablets, computers, drones, hoverboards, and everything in between. To date, uBreakiFix has completed more than 4.5 million repairs. While common fixes include cracked screens, software issues, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.
Through strategic partnerships with leading technology companies, including Samsung and Google, uBreakiFix provides Samsung Galaxy customers and Google Pixel and Pixelbook customers with manufacturer-backed, same-day repair services using genuine parts. Through the partnership with Samsung, Galaxy owners can get in and out-of-warranty repairs at more than 300 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.
uBreakiFix Kalamazoo is the first location for John Bailey Jr. and his son, John Bailey III, who plan to open 14 more stores. John was so impressed by the quality and speed of a repair needed while on a business trip that he immediately began to research franchising options. Within 6 months, John left his previous job and began the journey to open his first uBreakiFix store.
“Phones and electronic devices are not only more expensive, but are more personally important than ever before. It’s your memories, entertainment, and communication lifeline all in one,” said John. “We want to offer quality and timely repairs so that Kalamazoo residents can get back in their social and business loops, without missing a beat.”
uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by millennial duo Justin Wetherill and David Reiff, who later partnered with Eddie Trujillo to transition their Internet-based brand to a brick and mortar model. By offering convenience, accessibility, and unparalleled customer service, uBreakiFix filled a gap in the repair marketplace and has since emerged as an industry leader in growth, service offerings, and authorized partnerships. In 2018, Wetherill was inducted into the Forbes Technology Council, and uBreakiFix earned a top spot on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500® list, ranking #18 overall, #1 in the Electronics Repair category, and #1 on the Top New Franchises list.
uBreakiFix has more than 462 locations open across the U.S. and Canada.
