FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Henrico, Virginia)– According to recent reports, an estimated 70 percent of adults in the United States own smartphones, a 35 percent uptick from just five years ago. As the mobile device movement continues on its upward trend, the demand for repairs grows in proportion. This development comes as no surprise to Justin Carroll, founder of Fruit Fixed ( who has witnessed the increase firsthand since opening the doors of his mobile device and electronics repair business in 2011. In light of the growing call, Carroll has recently announced the company’s latest expansion.
“I’ve seen the need for mobile repairs surge since the early days of my business,” Carroll confirmed, “and it’s only going to grow more as new devices hit the market. Our new storefront in Short Pump gives customers outside the immediate area of our Richmond shop in the Carytown district more convenient access to our services and enables us to carry on with our goal of providing the fastest possible turnaround times without sacrificing quality.”
Fruit Fixed began on a considerably smaller scale than the high volume its employees currently handle. Carroll began his entrepreneurial journey with a single repair of his own shattered phone screen. As word of his successful venture spread, business swelled from an occasional part-time endeavor into a full-time career. The company likewise branched out from screens to internal components and incorporated tablets, computers and gaming consoles into its service lineup based on the company website,
This expansion marks the third in the company’s time line. Fruit Fixed was initially a mobile business, moving into its first brick-and-mortar site three years after being established. Volume surpassed the capacity of the original locale, prompting a need to transfer to the company’s larger current home base in Carytown.

Our team remains dedicated to that goal, and our newest location is simply the latest step in our efforts to better serve our customers as well as our community. We’ll continue to extend our services, update our training and open new locations as our industry evolves.”
