Madison, WI (PRWEB) May 10, 2012
On Monday, May 7, 2012, JCD Repair opened it's third repair shop in downtown Madison, WI. This shop will primarily be repairing the Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Most of these repairs can be done for customers in about 45 minutes while they way. The one exception is their iPad screen repair which take 48-72 hours. The most common service they perform is cracked screen repair. However, they also do battery replacement and fix the charging port, wifi, speakers, microphone, cameras, and more.
JCD Repair was started in Seattle, WA in 2007 out of the apartment of one of the founders. By 2009 the business had grown significantly. The founders began a lease on an actual retail space in Seattle and at the same time opened their second shop in Chicago, IL. The rapid growth has continued.
"We've spent the last three years perfecting our iPhone, iPod, and iPad repair business," says founder Matt McCormick. "We decided it was time to take the next step and start expanding. Madison is a great city to start that process."
The reason for selecting Madison, WI was several fold, according to McCormick and his business partner, John Matthews. First, Madison and its metro area has a population of over 500,000 people. It's also home to the University of Wisconsin-Madison and its 40,000 students. As of right now, both of them feel that population is underserved when it comes to small electronics repair.
Secondly, Madison is in fairly close proximity to JCD Repair's Chicago store. This makes it much easier to setup and support than a more distant location. This was a hard lesson JCD learned when it opened it's Chicago store - 2000 miles away from its first store in Seattle.
Lastly, the McCormick grew up just outside of Madison and went to college there. "There's no doubt that part of the reason we're moving to Madison is selfish," he says with a smile. "If this works out the way we expect, it will allow me to spend a lot more time with the family and friends I grew up with."
But make no mistake, both McCormick and Matthews see this as a great model for their business. The United States is home to a plenty of affluent college towns similar to Madison, and if this new location works out, the growth potential for JCD Repair looks very good.
