I try to give a “shout out” to local businesses when I can – and the other day while visiting my Mission location Lennie and I stopped at the “New York Dawg Pound” in Shawnee Mission, Kansas.
So I ordered the “Boxer”, which is a quarter pound hot dog with blue cheese crumbles, bacon, red onions and sweet mustard. IT WAS DELICIOUS. Not all that healthy, but delicious.
Starting at the top and going clockwise: The “Spike”, the “Dalmatian”, the “Boxer”.
If you like a hot dog and are in the Kansas City area, you should certainly give these guys a try. They have a “patter” that guides you through the ordering process, and the sky is the limit with these guys.
Yeah, you might be able to order a “plain” dog, but you might be run out of the store 😉
There you go, a yummy lunch at reasonable prices with a fun menu. I like small “mom and pop” restaurants like this, sometimes you get a home run!
Talk to you soon, Ryan
Hello fans of electronics –
The “4th generation iPod Touch”…what more can we say about it? It keeps chugging away. Folks continue to choose to repair instead of replace these awesome machines and with good reason… they just continue to work! You could call them timeless. Cracking the screen will not render the iPod touch useless in most cases, rather, you just have to compete with shards of glass when perusing Facebook or snapchatting!
We at Mission Repair are in awe of the iPod Touch 4 “staying power” and are proud to be the premier repair facility for these great devices! Over the last several years, we have had the pleasure of repairing a countless number of these devices and we truly do not see an end in sight! There is just something about these that keep people attached.
If you have an iPod touch that looks like the image above, you certainly need our services! Click here: iPod Touch Screen Repair to get started on your repair today!
Take care, Ryan
Hi there friends,
We’ve already had a few calls about this; so I want to remind each of you that we will be CLOSED JULY 4th, 2015! Normal business hours will remain in effect Friday July 3rd and after the 4th. Since we are open on the 3rd, I want to make everyone aware that FedEx is on a modified shipping schedule and we’ve been “warned” about their changes. They are picking up early on Friday, so we will do everything that we can to get repairs done and completed and shipped back out to our customers.
Independence Day means fireworks and BBQ’s for the Arter Family…I hope you spend some quality time with your own family as well.
The last thing I want to say is…”Happy Birthday America!”
Take care, Ryan
Good morning friends of Mission Repair!
I got into the office this morning, and received this review from our Mission, Kansas location and had to repost. I love starting my mornings off like this!

Just wanted to say thank you for the great experience I had with your Johnson Drive repair facility today. I HAD an I Pad 3 with a cracked screen and a corner of glass missing so I searched Google for a local repair facility that did not charge an arm and a leg to repair my I Pad. I came across your website as well as many others that provide local drop off service and selected yours based in part on price and reviews. Well I arrived at your shop this morning and was promptly greeted by one of your techs. He was very professional and took care of me right away. He advised that it may not be finished until tomorrow which I was good with, but that if it were done earlier he would call. Now I would like to also state that I noticed that your store was very clean and neat along with the professional attitudes and appearance of your tech. I got an exact upfront price on my repair and so I paid the bill and left my I Pad. To my surprise I got a call about 3 hours later advising me that my repair was complete!! I returned to meet another one of your techs which was just as professional and he delivered my I Pad back to me promptly. I must say that the I Pad looks as good as new and it was delivered to me in protective bubble wrap for a safe trip home. I own five Apple products and three Android products, and although I hope to never need your services again, if I do I will feel confident that you can honestly take care of any repair needs. I Highly recommend you service and would feel confident in referring anyone to your company.
Thanks again Tommy for the great post on Facebook, have a great week!
Now, I have to get back to reality and really start working…Ryan
Good morning everyone!
We are at a cross-roads here at Mission Repair in our Olathe location, and our long-term lease is coming due. So this big question is, do we renew or relocate our headquarters?
I’ve poised the question to our employees at our quarterly meeting, and we have a split decision. I mean we just finished out new shipping room and new break room and it seems that we are all doing quite well with the space we have…in fact there’s still more room to grow. However our current space is down a dead end street and not all that convenient for our customers to find us.
How would a drive through work? It’s possible that Mission Repair will have the first drive-through iPhone repair center in the country (that I know of) – so we are working on it. It would be especially helpful in the cold winter months here in Kansas so our customers wouldn’t have to jump out of the car with the kiddos in the snow…things become a mess.
Well, we’ve got another meeting today at 11:00am to visit a few locations right off of I35, so I’ll have an answer for us soon. It’s a tough decision to move from a home that we love; and yes I only live about 5 miles from our current location. Maybe it’s time to relocate a bit for our customer’s sake, we’ll have some more info for you soon!
Take care, have a great day in the sunshine, wherever you are.
