The Lufkin In & Out Smart Repair is owned and operated by Paul Zeringue. Prior to opening his In & Out Smart Repair franchise, Zeringue worked in finance with New York Life in New Orleans and owned a bar and café in the city, too. He interned with the FBI while attending Southeastern Louisiana University. Zeringue planned to follow his father’s footsteps as an FBI agent, but Zeringue’s entrepreneurial spirit was too strong for a career with the government.
“We’ve all had that freak-out moment where our phone breaks and we’re not sure what to do,” said Zeringue. “I’m proud to offer the Lufkin community high quality fixes for all their devices. Our technicians are trained to be fast, while upholding the highest quality of service. In & Out Smart Repair can fix your device while you wait in our store and leave knowing we honor our commitment to our customers.”
In addition to repairs, customers can buy, sell or trade used devices and shop accessories for the most trusted brands of smartphones and tablets. If a device proves to be unrepairable, In & Out Smart Repair staff can recommend one of their refurbished devices to get the customer back up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible. Customers can also recycle old devices through In & Out Smart Repair’s government-certified program, allowing corrosive materials to be dealt with effectively and responsibly.
