December 26, 2018

BAYTOWN, Texas, Dec. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Baytown, on Dec. 19 at 5623 Garth Road, Suite 145. This is the brand’s second location in the eastern region of the state, joining a store in Atascocita.

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 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 Baytown is the third location for Steve Curtindale, who also owns locations in Gulfport, Mississippi and Atascocita, Texas. In both Texas locations, Curtindale is joined by partners Garlon Pemberton and Warren Dedeaux. Together, they plan to open four more locations in the East Houston area.

“Our current locations have great reputations for exceeding customer’s expectations,” Curtindale said. “We want to continue this in the Baytown area by providing high quality repairs with an excellent customer experience. Baytown is a beautiful city with a rich and diverse culture, and we are thrilled to meet the technology needs of this community.”

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.
