May 24, 2019

GREENFIELD, Wis., May 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix recently opened uBreakiFix Greenfield on May 17 at 7440 W. Holmes Avenue.

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 Greenfield is the first location for owners Katie Ryan Pluer, Shannon Lopez, and Kristen Pfeifer. The business partners plan to open three additional stores over the next 18 months in Oak Creek, Racine, and Kenosha.

“As proud Greenfield natives and self-proclaimed female tech trio, we could not be more excited to open our first uBreakiFix store,” Pluer said. “We are thrilled to join a company that values customer service above everything in an industry that is continuing to grow. Even more, we’re looking forward to giving back to our community by meeting various technology needs and creating career opportunities within our stores.”

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 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.
