“After working decades in the high tech world of Silicon Valley, I wanted to be a part of something connected to technology that would add value to the community...so I decided to partner with uBreakiFix,” said Akash Sawhney, co-owner of uBreakiFix Union City. “uBreakiFix will not only bring high quality technology repair and excellent customer service to Union City, but also create local jobs and opportunities for growth. We’re happy to be open and serving our community with this valuable service.”

While common fixes include shattered screens, software issues, and camera issues, the brand offers support for most technical problems on any electronic device, regardless of make or model.
“We understand better than ever before that technology is no longer a luxury; it is a necessity to stay connected to life,” Sawhney said. “At uBreakiFix, we’re dedicated to serving our customers and alleviating any unnecessary stress caused by a broken or damaged device. Whether a customer needs their computer fixed for work or school, or needs help updating their smartphone device, we’re here to provide the support they need.”
uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 by millennial entrepreneurs Justin Wetherill and David Reiff to fill a gap in the market for affordable, high-quality phone repair.

“At uBreakiFix, our story has been shaped by an unwavering commitment to continually improving the repair experience for customers,” Wetherill said. “We founded this company to fill a need for high-quality, convenient repair with great service at a fair price. We always say we’re a customer service company first, and a tech company second.
