LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y., July 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Long Island City, on July 16 at 10-50 Jackson Avenue, Suite 1. This is the brand’s first location in Queens, joining nearby stores in Greenwich Village, Chelsea, and Downtown Brooklyn.
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 Long Island City is the first store for local owner Elliot Park, who plans to open a second location in Astoria. With a background in bulk cell phone repair, Park was a natural fit to join the uBreakiFix team and bring much-needed repair service to Long Island City.
“Long Island City is such a unique and vibrant commercial area,” Park said. “Located in Queens just one stop down from Grand Central Station, this is a perfect location for uBreakiFix. I have worked in Long Island City for nearly 20 years and am well connected with many organizations and community leaders here. My team and I look forward to serving our friends and neighbors in Long Island City and beyond with access to high-quality tech repair and unmatched customer service.”
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 400 locations open across the U.S. and Canada. The brand opened 21 new stores during the first quarter of 2018 and plans to increase growth each quarter throughout the year. For more information on uBreakiFix franchising, visit http://ubreakifix.com/franchising.
