Both Asurion and uBreakiFix put customers first. Asurion has a history of customer-focused, industry-first innovations. We are excited to work together, with our franchise owners, to make peoples’ tech lives better. Orlando remains an integral part of the past, present and future of uBreakiFix, and uBreakiFix will continue to operate its headquarters at its home office in Orlando.
