Kansas City’s largest and fastest growing technology repair company partners with the industry’s leader in technology repair to accelerate growth nationwide
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (May 8, 2018) – Phone Medic – Kansas City’s largest and fastest-growing cell phone repair, technology repair and refurbished device service provider – announces the planned alignment of its business operations as a franchisee of uBreakiFix, the nation’s industry leader for walk-in electronics repair.
As franchises, Phone Medic’s stores will assume and operate under the uBreakiFix brand. The Kansas City area and surrounding regional stores will retain local ownership and management, supported by uBreakiFix state-of-the-art technology and infrastructure, parts inventory systems and comprehensive staff training program.
The partnership also provides access to uBreakiFix’s 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.
A commitment to growth, innovation, and improvement are central elements in both organization’s core values. Phone Medic’s founders, Paul and Mike Kushnir, built a similar high growth business, Wireless Lifestyle, which currently operates over 200 Sprint stores in the United States and Puerto Rico. Under the leadership of CEO – Christine Ricci, Phone Medic is expected to respond nimbly to meet market demand and grow exponentially under the umbrella of uBreakiFix.
“uBreakiFix is one of the industry’s most trusted brands and strives to offer the highest quality service at an affordable price,” says Ricci. “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.”
“Phone Medic offers uBreakiFix an exciting opportunity to grow its service offerings in cell phone and mobile electronic device repair services,” explains Justin Wetherill, founder, and CEO of uBreakiFix. “With its entrepreneurial spirit, passion for technology, commitment to great customer service and dedication to excellence in high-quality repair, Phone Medic is a natural cultural fit for uBreakiFix’s strategy to lead the market.”
The transition from the Phone Medic brand to the uBreakiFix brand is expected to take place over the next 60 days.
