May. 16, 2018
SARASOTA, Fla., May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix North Sarasota, on May 15 at 3315 University Parkway, Suite 101. This is the brand’s second location in Sarasota, joining a store on Tamiami Trail.
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 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 North Sarasota is the third location for local owner Joel Scott, who also owns uBreakiFix Sarasota and co-owns uBreakiFix Bradenton with parents Susie and Ken Scott. Scott grew up an hour South in Fort Myers and has called Sarasota home for the past three years.
“For the past few years, my team and I have been serving the Florida Gulf Coast through our stores in Sarasota and Bradenton,” Scott said. “Our newest store on University Parkway will allow us to provide quality, accessible tech repair to even more communities, including Lakewood Ranch and North Sarasota. Our customers know that a broken device doesn’t have to ruin your day. We look forward to becoming the go-to resource for all of North Sarasota’s tech repair needs.”
To celebrate its opening, uBreakiFix North Sarasota will offer 25 percent off all Apple repairs, as well as free tempered glass with any repair purchase while supplies last. The store plans to host a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Manatee Chamber of Commerce later this month.
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.
