Christian Brothers Automotive Launches National Contest to Support and Reward Teachers

September 11, 2013 // // HOUSTON – Christian Brothers Automotive, a national automotive repair franchise, has launched an online contest to reward teachers who have made a difference in their communities.

Customers and fans are encouraged to nominate their favorite teacher via the company Facebook page and share in 250 words or less how that teacher or staff member has “made a Nice Difference in the lives of their students and their community.” Submissions will be accepted until September 20th, and Christian Brothers will select fifteen finalists to be voted on by the fans on Facebook. The grand prize winning teacher will receive an iPad Mini, a $250 gift card to Staples, a $250 gift certificate to Christian Brothers, and a pizza party for his/her entire school.

“Christian Brothers Automotive is devoted to supporting our local communities, and we couldn’t think of a better way to do that than by rewarding hard-working teachers,” said Mark Carr, founder and CEO of Christian Brothers Automotive. “With this contest, our goal is to show our support for local schools, and to reward the deserving teachers who are helping to shape the future of this country.”

Christian Brothers Automotive was established in 1982 as a result of Carr’s ambition to give Houston-area car owners a pleasant, professional and clean automotive service experience. Carr began franchising the brand in 1997.Distinguishing itself with a family-first value system, all locations operate during traditional working hours, but they are closed on weekends so owners and employees can share quality family time.

Christian Brothers Automotive provides full-service automotive diagnostic testing and evaluation, maintenance programs and repair work for all domestic and foreign vehicles at each of their locations. For more information about Christian Brothers Automotive, please visit
