FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., Sept. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Fayetteville, on Tuesday Sept. 11 at 3931 North Shiloh Drive Suite 2B. This is the brand’s first location in Washington County, joining stores in central and northwestern Arkansas.

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 Fayetteville is the second location for uBreakiFix Tech Solutions, Inc., led by President Mike Pierce and Chief Operating Officer Brad Reece. The group also owns a store in Springfield, Missouri and currently has stores under construction in Joplin, Missouri, and Tulsa, Oklahoma, with additional stores coming soon.

“We chose Fayetteville because this growing community has so much to offer,” Pierce said. “We want to be located as conveniently as possible to provide top-tier tech service to Northwest Arkansas businesses and consumers.”

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 425 locations open across the U.S. and Canada.
