uBreakiFix Expands Texas Footprint With Houston Store

May 13, 2019

HOUSTON, May 13, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Memorial, on April 28 at 9323 Katy Freeway #C.

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 350 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.

uBreakiFix Memorial is the second location for Fernando Villarreal and Mark Wallis, who also own the store in Katy. They have plans to open four additional locations in the future.

“We couldn’t think of a better place to launch our second store in Houston than the Memorial Villages area,” Villarreal said. “Memorial is one of the best neighborhoods to live in Texas with highly ranked schools, restaurants, shopping, and family friendly activities. We’re thrilled to meet the tech needs of this community by offering high-quality repairs at affordable prices with unmatched customer service. uBreakiFix has a real purpose, above and beyond making money — it’s about serving people, and we are proud to be a part of this company.”

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 500 locations open across the U.S. and Canada. The brand opened nearly 130 new stores in 2018 and plans to increase growth in 2019. For more information on uBreakiFix franchising, visit http://ubreakifix.com/franchising.
