    Bit to Do

    It’s Saturday night and you’re out with your friends at one of Louisville’s most lively bars. The live deejay is playing mash-ups of all your favorite songs and there’s a ridiculously good happy hour going on. You head to the bar with your friends for another round of the city’s most inventive cocktails and while you’re waiting for the bartender to work their spirited magic, you decide to check your cell phone for any missed messages. Just then, someone nearby gets carried away with the music and bumps into you, causing your delicate phone to slip out of your hand and crash onto the floor.

    What used to be a happy glowing screen staring back at you with cute messages from your closest friends and urgent Facebook notifications is now a broken device shattered in a hundred tiny shards of glass.

    And the worst part about this entire situation is that it’s Saturday night and all cell phone stores open late and close early on Sunday. What if you can’t even get an appointment?

    Something just like this happened to Louisville native, Gil Roberts’ wife once. And instead of waiting on the busy phone manufacturer to fix the phone, he decided to take matters into his own hands, literally.

    Gil Roberts has teamed up with fellow University of Louisville classmate, Jarett Duker to bring this city a new kind of superhero. Introducing Phone Falcon, Louisville’s newest team of lightning fast phone fixers.

    “People are emotional about their phones,” Roberts says about his new business. “This is why we strive to provide excellent customer service.”

    And Phone Falcon is providing just that with its ability to repair phones when people need repairs the most. No longer do Louisvillians have to adjust their schedules to work around those of major cell phone stores. Phone Falcon will come directly to you when you need them with the offer of on-site and same-day services.

    “About eighty percent of our orders so far have been cell phones, but we do work with all smart devices including tablets,” Roberts explains about the company’s services. “Our prices are a good, affordable alternative to insurance and deductibles.”
