Tower, this is Ghost Rider requesting a flyby.

Good morning friends-

I was outside last night finishing up some yard work when I heard the humm of of “something” in the air. It got louder, louder, until this “powered parachute” buzzed right behind my house. I was able to get my camera out to snap a pic:

It was pretty cool. I’ve often thought about getting into this sport even through it looks a little dangerous. I’ve heard that it’s relatively inexpensive, and easy to store the machine- basically it does just fold up and will load onto a flatbed trailer for storage. Ok, take the danger factor out of it and it does look pretty great!

Well it got my dogs all riled up as well. My “scaredy dog” Layla hustled out to the edge of the fence so she could bark at this guy flying by. She’s such a tough girl 😉

How was your weekend? Anything spectacular happen? Did you take your motorized parachute out for a spin as well? If you did, let me know! I want to learn more about this; maybe it’s in my future.

You know how Amazon has been talking about “drones” delivering your products in the future? Maybe one day I’ll deliver freshly-repaired iPhones to my customers on one of these things. Ok, maybe not.

Have great day, Ryan

Back to school – I just had a moment…

Hello folks,

After my lunch with Brae, it’s Thursday afternoon and it seems like the entire country is going back to school right now; my son Casey was just in my office this morning (he had an interview at the Olathe Police department, kind of cool!) and we were discussing his LAST YEAR of school. He is going to be a Senior this year, and then like some sort of magic – he will be done with school and off to bigger and better things. We aren’t quite sure what that means for him yet…a career in law enforcement? Become a chef? Who knows for sure…but college is in his future and right around the corner.

What I realized is that I just registered my youngest child for his senior year in high school. This is it, no more school registrations for me! I can just remember when I was saying “I can’t wait until I get both of my kids into Kindergarten. That will be great”. Well, not only is my daughter already in her 3rd year of college (holy moly) but my son is finishing High School this year. Simply amazing.

I can tell that the entire country is in “Back to School” mode and it pretty much effects everyone, even those without children. I’ve seen a ton of Facebook posts today and many kids are starting back up already! Casey goes back next Thursday to begin the first day of his last year of school, and I know he’s 50% excited and 50% dreading that summer is already over.

We’re in the Back to School Spirit here at Mission Repair too. In fact, Melanie and I are working on a Newsletter that will release this afternoon with an awesome back to school special. We know you’re busy, and we can seen by our huge increase in orders that families are scrambling to get devices fixed before the school year (in fact, the school IT departments are back from vacation and sending in Purchase Orders like crazy!) and we want to help if we can. Our Newsletter special will help offset some of the costs that families might be incurring with all of the back to school madness. Want to be a part of the Newsletter blast? Just sign up here and you’ll get a copy later today!

Thanks again for reading everyone, and I’ll be back this afternoon in your email inbox with the Mission Repair “Back To School” special!

Take care, Ryan

Yes, we have more than one location.

Hello friends and customers-

I was just visiting our Mission, Kansas store this morning and got into a conversation with a couple of our customers as they walked into Mission Repair Express…I was standing outside with Lennie, Albert, Wade and TJ discussing new potential signage on the front of the store.

mission repair locations

I asked a gentleman, “Did you know that we had more than one location?” I asked the next guy…and a third customer that ended up being extremely helpful and insightful on the storefront in general. However none of them knew that there are multiple Mission Repair locations with more on the way.

How is this possible? I did a little research and found that it might be a bit confusing when searching for us on the web to see more than our Corporate Headquarters location. We do have a “locations” link at the top of our website, but it’s clear to me that there’s some confusion with this topic.

You can visit any of our locations with no appointment necessary. They all carry the same business hours: M-F 8am to 7pm, Weekends are 10am to 5pm.

Stay tuned: We are opening a new location in the Denver, Colorado area in late 2014 and currently training for that location now! Yay, this is getting fun!

Take care, Ryan

iPhone 5C Repair – lowest price to date at Mission Repair!

Hello friends,

Wow. I am surprised to see how many of you from across the Nation have taken advantage of our extremely low repair price for the iPhone 5C cracked screen. I continue to place orders for the screens at amazing quantities!

Screen Shot 2014-06-12 at 4.47.19 PM

There’s no rush if you’re in need, however we have a great supply of these screens in stock now to take care of your broken iPhone 5C. Don’t forget that we have an Express Service Option if you visit one of our locations so we will take care of you fast.

My technicians are second to none. They work very hard to make sure each customer receives the best possible experience when visiting Mission Repair…just so you know, repairing broken devices isn’t always “simple”. There are thousands of nuances, tricks, and man hours that go into learning each device and each type of problem that can occur. I was even working on a unit a couple of weeks ago that stumped me. I had to hand it “up” to one of our other technicians. I said “other” technician, not “better” 😉

Give us a call. We are here for you and don’t want you to live with that cracked iPhone screen. 866-638-8402.

Take care, Ryan
