SIOUX FALLS, S.D. - June 7, 2017 // PRNewswire // - Phone-n-Fix, a premium cell phone retail and repair franchise concept, has expanded its franchise reach after signing a two-unit deal with partners Jill Van Zee and John Kolb.

Van Zee and Kolb bring more than 20 collective years of business ownership and knowledge to the Phone-n-Fix franchise operation, in addition to an unwavering dedication to the communities they enter. Just 10-miles outside of Iowa's capital city, Ankeny's rapid growth as a millennial destination makes it the ideal location for Phone-n-Fix.

"Ankeny and West Des Moines are home to thriving communities, and Phone-n-Fix is a perfect fit to address their mobile-device needs," said Van Zee. "We're confident in our ability to make an impact here along with the dedicated team who stand behind the Phone-n-Fix brand."

The Ankeny and West Des Moines locations - opening in the fall of 2017 - will be the first in the Hawkeye State, in addition to existing franchise locations in both North and South Dakota.

"As we expand our reach across the Midwest, and eventually nationwide, it's incredibly important to identify talented and dedicated business owners that are committed to the Phone-n-Fix brand," said Steve Michael, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Development of Phone-n-Fix. "With their collective experience and devotion to the communities they serve, we're confident in John and Jill's ability to uphold the premium Phone-n-Fix experience."

Through the comprehensive franchise program, Phone-n-Fix franchisees benefit from a multi-tiered system of exclusive purchasing power and an executive team with a combined 40-years of business development and mobile industry knowledge.
