uBreakiFix Expands Louisiana Footprint with Baton Rouge Store
Industry-Leading Tech Repair Brand Brings High Quality Electronics Support to East Baton Rouge Parish
October 07, 2019 // Franchising.com // BATON ROUGE, La. - Tech repair brand uBreakiFix opened its newest location, uBreakiFix Baton Rouge, on September 23 at 640 Arlington Creek Center Boulevard, Building 2 Suite B.
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 nearly 7 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 350 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.
uBreakiFix Baton Rouge is the second location for MeSha Prejean, who also owns uBreakiFix Lafayette and plans to open three to four more uBreakiFix stores in the area. In September 2017, Prejean acquired the brand’s Lafayette location which had been open for just under two years. Within four months of purchasing the location, she had more than doubled its revenue and business.
“I am a Louisianian through and through and want to provide the best experience to all my fellow Louisianians,” Prejean said. “As a single mother, I used to fix all of my son’s devices myself, and I turned my hobby into a profession. My goal is to make quality tech repair more accessible to users of tech in Baton Rouge and beyond.”
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. Currently, uBreakiFix has more than 540 locations open across the U.S. and Canada.
“At uBreakiFix, our goal is to take the hassle of a broken device and create the most positive, convenient experience possible for our customers,” Wetherill said. “We are a customer service company first, and a tech repair company second. As we expand into Baton Rouge, we look forward to becoming the trusted resource to keep consumers and businesses connected to the things and people who matter most.”
