ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- uBreakiFix announced significant growth for the third quarter of 2018, boasting a total of 40 new stores. These third quarter additions bring the brand’s total footprint to 448 stores across North America, marking a 135 percent increase from last year’s third quarter growth.

Fastest growing markets included Arizona with four new locations, as well as Alabama, Tennessee, and California, each with three new locations. uBreakiFix also grew its footprint in Washington and Utah, each with two new locations.

In August, uBreakiFix expanded its partnership with Samsung Electronics America to include the Samsung Galaxy Note 9, which launched on August 24. Under the partnership, uBreakiFix provides same-day, in-person authorized repair service to Samsung Galaxy mobile owners across the U.S. As an authorized service provider, uBreakiFix offers both in and out-of-warranty repairs at more than 350 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.

In September, uBreakiFix teamed up with Google to provide free Pixel repairs for victims of Hurricane Florence. During the third quarter, uBreakiFix also entered into a strategic partnership with Servify North America. Servify is a global after-sales service technology platform working closely with top OEMs, telcos, retailers, and insurance providers to deliver seamless after-sales service experience to its consumers. This strategic partnership will enable Servify to deliver an excellent customer experience in North America via uBreakiFix’s professional walk-in service network.

“At uBreakiFix, we evaluate every partnership and growth opportunity through the lens of what will create the most value for our customers,” said uBreakiFix president and co-founder Justin Wetherill. “We are always seeking to align ourselves with leading organizations and individuals for partnerships that will not only benefit both parties, but most importantly, will benefit our customers.”

Between October 1 and December 31, uBreakiFix plans to open 30 new stores, including expansion in Texas, with up to nine new locations opening across the state, and Canada, with up to seven new locations opening across the country. The brand also plans to continue entering new strategic partnerships and extending existing partnerships to serve new customers.

“We’re proud of our continued growth, of course; but to us, growth is simply a result of doing right by our team, partners, and customers,” Wetherill said. “We are excited about all that we’ve accomplished in 2018 and will continue the momentum to end the year strong.”

uBreakiFix is known for its ability to repair anything with a power button. To date, uBreakiFix has repaired more than 4.9  million devices, including phones, tablets, computers, gaming consoles, and beyond. uBreakiFix offers free diagnostics, and each repair is backed with a 90-day warranty.  

uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by a savvy millennial duo, Justin Wetherill and David Reiff, who married their skillsets with Eddie Trujillo to offer a brick and mortar tech repair option that was quick, affordable, and provided a quality customer experience. By filling a gap in the repair marketplace, the company has grown organically without investors or consultants.
