Bryan Quintanilla and Tony Robino , two young 22-year-old entrepreneurs’ who look more likely to be playing the videogame Modern Warfare than doing surgery with the inner guts of an iPhone, have opened a new business front this year repairing broken smartphones, an idea potentially worth millions. It’s called “The SmartPhone Clinic”.
Beginning this week, SmartPhone Clinic is opening their second location in less than one year of being in business, just one block north of the famous and upscale Aventura Mall. Not even fully open a week, they’re already taking orders for a new service in fashion conscience Miami, FL called “iColors” for the iPhone. Not only can they convert a regular Black iPhone 4 to the trendy “White”,they are now offering a new array of colors, Red, Blue, Green, Pink, Yellow and more. And no it’s not a case or sticker you attach to the iPhone but the actual glass that is custom. This makes them one of the first to offer a unique customization service for the iPhone that makes the ordinary colored, black or white iPhone, a little more extraordinary.
The SmartPhone Clinic has lowered the cost of the service and now offers a DIY kit for $129.99 or the iColors conversion service for $149.99, which includes parts and labor. Cheaper than the $200.00 Apple charges for standard iPhone 4 Repair. In addition, they offer different back covers with options of different color glass, leather, carbon fiber, metal, wood and other designs, fitted for the iPhone 4 that are replacements for the back cover. Hopefully they can do the same for the iPhone 5 rumored to debut in October.
Since opening day their business has been rapidly growing, opening 2 stores in less than a year. Pretty impressive for 22 year olds. With numerous 5 star ratings, a hefty facebook fan base, and consumer demand, the company has expanded their product line to include iPhone Repair, Blackberry Repair, HTC EVO Repair, PC Repair , Laptop Repair and XBOX/PS3/Wii Repair and Customization. They also expanded to sell services like AT&T U-verse, Xfinity, CLEAR, DIRECTV and Simple Mobile Wireless in their retail stores.
The SmartPhone Clinic offers mail-in orders online but also offers more convenient walk-in locations in Fort Lauderdale and Miami FL
“Shockingly, everything has worked out accordingly to our initial idea,” said Tony Robino. Business has been so well that they are opening another location in Palm Beach County in November and soon after expand to Texas and California. “Our goal is to be a one-stop-shop for smart device users and open The SmartPhone Clinic in every major market by 2013.”
