With the most corporate stores in the industry, uBreakiFix has rapidly become the foremost smartphone and computer repair company in the United States. Before launching our franchise program, we opened over 45 corporate locations. Throughout the development of these locations, we created numerous proprietary systems and processes which are utilized by our franchisees today, and have proven integral to our brand's continued success.
Having consistently demonstrated success while opening corporate stores throughout the years, our first-class opening assistance team will be present during the entire opening process. They will tend to everything, including choosing the best location in the area, opening the new location as swiftly as possible, and marketing appropriately in your area.
With the largest distribution center in the country (as well as an office in Chine), we are able to secure the highest quality parts at some of the lowest prices in the industry. Having our distribution center stateside gives us a competitive advantage when offering these usually time-sensitive repairs. We also have accounts with major wholesalers, who have given us special rates exclusively due to our buying power. uBreakiFix franchisees will have a direct connection with these vendors and will be eligible for pre-negotiated discounted rates. While some competitors use these relationships to earn commission, our commitment to industry leading margins means we pass any savings directly to the franchisee.
We have dedicated years designing our proprietary systems and software, and have numerous systems in place to assure that customers receive the same level of service at any uBreakiFix location.
Our goal is to allow franchisees' stores to operate as smoothly as our own.
