KNOXVILLE, Tenn., July 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix University Commons, on July 30 at 2451 University Commons Way. This is the brand’s third location in Knoxville, joining stores in Powell and Turkey Creek.
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 4.5 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 University Commons is the third location for owners Chris O'Beirne and Chance Barnett, who also own the brand’s locations in Powell and Turkey Creek and plan to open five more uBreakiFix stores across Eastern Tennessee.
“The University of Tennessee is home to students, faculty, and administrators whose devices are essential to their day-to-day lives on and around campus,” O’Beirne said. “We’re excited to provide our existing UT customers with another convenient location and reach new communities on campus and beyond. We hope to become the go-to resource for all of the University’s tech repair needs.”
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.
