Shatter Buggy Opens First Midwest Franchise: Minneapolis Now Home to Innovative iDevice Repair Service

DENVER, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- iPhone, iPad and iPod owners in Minneapolis will soon have a fast, easy way to repair their Apple devices should calamity strike. The "City of Lakes" is the newest location for iDevice repair house calls, thanks to the hard work and dedication of local businessman Matt Endress and his family. Endress is excited to announce the opening of his own Shatter Buggy ( franchise. The new franchise represents the iDevice repair service's first foray into the Midwest, and a sign of more good things to come.

Shatter Buggy's unique approach includes using a fleet of fuel-efficient Smart cars for service calls. No physical storefront to maintain means far less overhead. Every franchisee and field technician undergoes rigorous training to ensure superior skills in iDevice repair. The most common repair issues that Shatter Buggy faces are broken screens and defective batteries. Both of these are generally quick fixes for a technician. Technical skills are only part of the equation, of course; a customer-centric, can-do attitude is the core value of Shatter Buggy.

"My wife, Erin, and I were keen on finding something that fit with our family philosophy: doing right by people and the world we live in," explained Endress. "We try to live by the traditional motto of reduce, reuse and recycle. From buying household goods secondhand when possible to taking our own to-go containers to restaurants, we attempt to do lots of simple things that add up to a more sustainable lifestyle."

"Opening a Shatter Buggy has been a perfect fit for that lifestyle. By providing honest service, saving phones and their associated toxins and heavy metals from the landfill, and reducing carbon emissions with our Smart cars, we can be proud of our business model."

Shatter Buggy founder Benjamin Head is not surprised by the success of the brand. With literally hundreds of millions of iPods, iPads and iPhones in the United States, the market for a quality and reliable repair service is astronomical. "The demand is already there," remarked Head. "Shatter Buggy provides a service that people need; anyone who has shattered an iPhone screen knows that getting it repaired through traditional channels is far from easy. And the fact that we make house calls puts Shatter Buggy in a class by itself."

Shatter Buggy has already made great strides since its founding in 2012. The Minneapolis franchise comes on the heels of a recent opening in Las Vegas. The brand is steadily generating a loyal following in each of its locations, while gaining the attention of entrepreneurs and forward-thinking business people from coast to coast.
