“uBreakiFix is one of the industry’s most trusted brands and strives to offer the highest quality service at an affordable price,” she said. “Our top priority is keeping people connected. Partnering with uBreakiFix best positions us to support consumers and businesses with the very best, while fueling both organizations for tremendous future growth.”
uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 and has locations across the U.S. and Canada. It ranked No. 18 on Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list in 2018, with No. 1 spots in both the top new franchises and electronics repair categories. Its offerings include being the exclusive repair partner for Google Pixel, Google Pixelbook and Samsung Galaxy products.
