uBreakiFix specializes in same-day repair service of small electronics, repairing cracked screens, software issues, camera issues and other technical problems at its more than 400 stores across North America.


uBreakiFix services anything with a power button, including smartphones, game consoles, tablets, computers, drones, hoverboards, and everything in between. To date, uBreakiFix has completed nearly 4.5 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 300 locations nationwide, with most repairs completed in two hours or less.

uBreakiFix Ankeny is the first location for owners B.J. Olson and Rory Kelly, who plan to open three additional stores in the Des Moines area, as well as one location just north in Ames.

“At uBreakiFix Ankeny, the customer is our top priority,” Olson said. “We are fully committed to providing the best tech repair and service to the community at an affordable price.”

“Rory and I have worked together in the past and have always felt that our customers are our greatest assets,” Olson said. “We were drawn to uBreakiFix’s customer-centric business model, which focuses on creating the best possible experience for every guest who walks through our doors. Both of our backgrounds are in the wireless industry, so we know firsthand what a tremendous opportunity the repair industry has to offer. We knew we wanted to partner with the industry leader to bring these services to Des Moines 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.
