Electronics Repair Shop uBreakiFix® Opens in Champaign
uBreakiFix Rescues Tech with Fast Fixes on Phones, Tablets, Laptops, and More
August 26, 2021 // Franchising.com // CHAMPAIGN, Ill. - Leading tech repair provider uBreakiFix® by Asurion has opened its newest franchise location in Champaign at 1712 W. Springfield Ave., Suite G, next to Starbucks in Union Square. The store offers professional repair services for anything with a power button, from smartphones, tablets, and computers to game consoles, smart speakers, and drones—and everything in between.
While common repairs include cracked screens, battery issues, and water damage, uBreakiFix repair experts have fixed more than 12 million devices and can help with most any tech mishaps, with most basic repairs completed in two hours or less.
uBreakiFix Champaign is the first Illinois location for owners Drew Lessaris and Ron Harb, who own uBreakiFix stores across Michigan and Arkansas. Lessaris, a Champaign native and University of Illinois alumnus, looks forward to bringing uBreakiFix to his old stomping grounds.
“I knew I wanted to open a uBreakiFix store in Champaign ever since I began franchising seven years ago,” Lessaris said. “I’m from Champaign, and my family has always had businesses here, so I’m excited to bring the Lessaris name back to this community. There is a tremendous need for high-quality tech repair in central Illinois, especially in a college town like Champaign. Whether you’re a student, faculty member, or resident here, odds are your tech is a big part of your day-to-day life. At uBreakifix, we know how frustrating it can be when you shatter your phone screen or spill coffee on your keyboard. When accidents happen, we’re here to get your favorite devices back up and running as quickly as possible.”
uBreakiFix repair experts fix all types of electronics, regardless of make or model, and uBreakiFix is an authorized repair provider for some devices, including Samsung Galaxy and Google Pixel smartphones. Customers can book a repair appointment online or stop by the store for walk-in service. uBreakiFix offers free, no-obligation diagnostics on all gadgets, as well as a low-price guarantee and 90-day warranty on all repairs.
uBreakiFix was founded in 2009 after Co-founder Justin Wetherill dropped and shattered his own smartphone, sparking the idea for a convenient, affordable repair option. Wetherill partnered with David Reiff and Eddie Trujillo to bring the concept to life, and it has since grown from a single storefront in Orlando, Florida, to nearly 700 locations across the U.S. and Canada. uBreakiFix joined the Asurion® family in 2019 and now operates as a subsidiary of the tech care company.
“We are excited to serve people in Champaign with fast and affordable tech repair,” said uBreakiFIx CEO Dave Barbuto. “We all rely on our phones and laptops more than ever before, and at uBreakiFix our mission is bigger than repairing shattered screens and broken charge ports. We fix tech because people rely on tech to stay connected to things that are important to them. I look forward to serving this community through our new Champaign location.”
