uBreakiFix Grows Kentucky Footprint, Opens In Bowling Green
BOWLING GREEN, Ky., Oct. 04, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Bowling Green, on October 2 in the Buckhead Square shopping center. This is the brand’s fourth location in Kentucky, joining stores in Jeffersontown, Florence, and Saint Matthews.
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 4.7 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 Bowling Green is the first location for Dan and Lisa Watterson, who plan to open two more stores in Owensboro, Kentucky, and Evansville, Indiana.
“From day one I was impressed with the uBreakiFix business model and the company’s tremendous potential,” said Dan Watterson. “I was drawn to the company’s focus on the customer, its professional repair service, and partnerships with industry-leading brands. Having attended WKU and lived in this area for more than 20 years, we intend for our store to become an integral part of the community. We also plan to partner with local nonprofits to support our friends and neighbors beyond the four walls of our store.”
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 nearly 450 locations open across the U.S. and Canada.
