Our Company

86 Repairs is transforming a huge, overlooked problem in restaurants: getting things fixed. While other parts of the industry have evolved thanks to technology, repairs and maintenance (R&M) has kept the status quo…

Until we came along.

86 Repairs empowers operators to manage R&M proactively. We are the only solution built to help restaurant operators increase margins, improve vendor relationships, and make R&M easy for frontline staff.

Our Community

The only way to build a great company is by hiring talented people with diverse backgrounds and rich life experiences. Those experiences contribute to our culture and help us find creative solutions to the tough problems we're solving. Because of this, 86 Repairs is committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, disability, and background in everything we do.

Historically, women and people of color are hesitant to apply for a job unless they meet every qualification listed in the job description. If you’re uncertain, please apply. We'd rather have one more resume to review than miss the chance to meet amazing talent.
