Christian Brothers Auto Repair Franchise Expanding in Wichita Area

Auto Repair Franchise Brings Stores, Franchise Opportunity to Wichita

WICHITA, KS - (Marketwired - Aug 27, 2014) - Texas-based auto repair franchise Christian Brothers Automotive is building two stores in the Wichita area as part of an energetic national expansion.

Christian Brothers Automotive has been named the top automotive franchise for three years in a row by Franchise Business Review, which tracks franchisee satisfaction. The 18-year-old franchise system has more than 125 locations nationwide and expects to open eight more before the end of 2014. It has never closed a location.

Looking for franchise partners

One of the new stores is Jesse Schemm's, opening soon at the northeast corner of North Maize Road and 29th Street North. Kansas native Schemm has managed service departments nationwide and decided to join the auto repair franchise after learning about it during a trip to Kansas City. "I started reading everything I could find about the company online, and everything I read was really good. I think God has really laid this out for us."

Christian Brothers is so confident customers will be impressed that they are already building a second store at 1302 Woodlawn Blvd. in anticipation of finding another franchise partner.

The difference between Christian Brothers Automotive and other auto repair facilities is dramatic. The attractive brick buildings feature a lobby that feels more like a nice living room than an auto repair shop. Customers can relax while they wait for an oil change or a simple repair, or they can take advantage of Christian Brothers' courtesy shuttle to get wherever they need to go while certified technicians handle their auto needs.

'Nice difference' generates customer loyalty

Christian Brothers calls it the "nice difference," and the difference extends to Christian Brothers' employees, most of whom don't have to work on the weekend. Weekends off are a rare treat in the auto repair industry, and that helps Christian Brothers attract exceptional mechanics who can diagnose problems and spot potential issues before they leave a customer stranded on the side of the road.

Customers have rewarded Christian Brothers for its service and expertise by giving it one of the highest customer-satisfaction and loyalty ratings in the industry. That loyalty has helped power sales growth for Christian Brothers franchise owners. Average franchise revenue grew 10.8 percent in 2013.
