Funny, I feel the same way.

Hi again, it’s been a fun blogging day here at Mission Repair!

I was eating lunch at a new restaurant downtown in Mission, Kansas today and they had a “sandwich board” out front:

It was kind of perfect because I was just thinking the same thing about Mission Repair. We do want to make our customers really happy. Of course! Get it “Mission?” In Mission. About Mission Repair!

So I snapped this pic and wanted to post it. “Nuff said”. Unless you want to talk more about it, just give us a call at 844-459-0105 and we’re here for you!

Take care, Ryan

One Million Blog Reads – it’s just around the corner!

Good morning, thanks for checking out the blog today!

Actually the number ONE MILLION is becoming part of a HUGE Mission Repair Celebration that’s soon to come. When we reach ONE MILLION unique Blog Readers (just like you); we are all going to party. As of today:

We are finalaizing preparations now for the biggest discounts that you’ve ever seen, and we will have lots of fun at each of our locations on this momentus day. I have so many stats, so much data, and have had so much fun being a professional blogger that it’s really exciting to know that soon my blog will reach the 1 Million mark and I’m just going to share my excitement and thanks to everyone.

I’ve been asked many times “do you ever get writers block?” Heck yeah I do. Also, “how did you start your blog?”

That second question is simple. Create a blog on a free blog site, name it, and start typing. In fact, I follow several blogs including past Mission Repair customers, vendors, and others that I just admire. If you’ve got a blog that you author or if I can help you get started on your own blog, let me know and I’ll be happy to be a part of your blog circle. Just reply to post in the comments section and I’m there!

So the big day is coming…the “Mission Repair Million Celebration”…we get about 10,000 new readers each month, so at this pace sometime in October we should be there as I calculated earlier in the year. It will happen when it happens, but rest assured that I’ll be right here to share in the big day.

Thanks for reading, Ryan

Indianapolis or bust!

Hello there-

We just finalized out plans to head to Indianapolis this week to secure our newest Mission Repair location and (maybe?) hopefully get the keys to the place!

We are hopefully locating in Fishers, Indiana…just North East of the Indianapolis downtown mega-center!

Our Fishers location will be strategic; it’s part of our long-term plan of growth of retail locations across the country. This means one thing for sure; our newest locations will be coming on line in a slow and methodical way. Mission Repair isn’t a franchise with different pricing, process or methods; and all of our technicians are trained in house.

I’ll be unavailable at the end of the week and it looks like we need to cram a week worth of work into just a few days. I’ll be here late, I should probably order take-out for dinner!

Have a great day, Ryan

iPhone 6 screens repairs. Yes, we’re busy.

Hello friends of the electronics world.

Holy bananas, we’ve received in a record number of iPhone 6’s with cracked screen over the last two weeks. It’s clear to me that the demand for this service is on the rise.

iPhone 6 Screen Repair – Black
iPhone 6 Screen Repair – White

Since we’ve got a large inventory of these parts we’ve gone ahead and lowered the price to a never-before-seen-so-low deal, we’ve got our hands full will iPhone 6 device repairs at the moment.

Well, it’s not totally “full”, we can always take more 😉 At least I say we can, but I’d bet our technicians would think otherwise!

So head on into your nearest Mission Repair location to have your cracked iPhone 6 repaired, there’s never been a better time.

See ya, Ryan

7/7 at 7:00.

Good morning again friends,

July 7 is the 188th day of the year (189th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. There are 177 days remaining until the end of the year.

july

I’m totally blown away that the year is clearly already over half way completed. I’m surprised because we’ve done so much already and shocked because we still have so much to to. I want to make sure that you understand this this is a “glass is half full” type of conversation because there’s nothing we can do about the time elapsed!

So the list that’s currently on my whiteboard at the office is:

1. Hire new employees.
2. Move into our new location in Lenexa, Kansas.
3. Move into our new location in Fishers, Indiana.
4. Grow the business.
5. Finish the new break room project.
6. Take a vacation.

Did you notice how “take a vacation” is at the bottom? That’s a floating goal for the year that seems to continually get pushed down. It’s alright we’ve got a tropical “week off” coming up in December, so that seems like it’s approaching fast enough on it’s own!

I’m getting back to work. Heads down, hold all my calls. Oh yeah, what’s happening on 7/7 at 7:00? That’s closing time at Mission Repair, so if you’re going to get that iPhone repaired today, you better get on the ball now!

Take care, Ryan

Mission Repair is closed on Saturday, July 4th!

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.

july 4th

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

Shopping for a new home – easier said than done!

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.

drivethru

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.

Ryan
