Christian Brothers Auto Repair Franchise to Open 20 Stores in 2015

Auto Repair Franchise Starts 2015 With 135 Locations Nationwide and Has Never Closed One

HOUSTON, TX - (Marketwired - Mar 2, 2015) - Christian Brothers Automotive plans to open 20 locations in 2015 -- continuing the strong growth that has earned the auto repair franchise recognition from both Entrepreneur magazine and Franchise Business Review.

Christian Brothers is a highly rated, faith-based auto repair franchise with a unique financial model. The auto repair franchise company assumes a majority of the startup risk by purchasing land and constructing "built-to-suit" buildings, which the franchisee then manages. We don't charge a franchisee based on top-line revenues like virtually every other franchisor, but on a share of the profits, which is calculated after expenses. Franchisees also pay themselves a salary before they pay the franchisor a nickel.

"We make it possible for good people to start a strong business in an industry that has had a troubled reputation, and we create a better experience for customers," said Mark Carr, CEO of Christian Brothers.

Carr said that what sets Christian Brothers apart from other auto repair franchises is what we like to call the "nice difference." That includes a solid brick building, a lobby that is reminiscent of an upscale hotel and comfortable furniture. The bathroom is clean, and the repair bays are impeccable.

"I like being in the garage and the camaraderie, but what I really like best is having an opportunity to speak with a guest about what is wrong with their car, what they can do to fix it, how they can prevent it from happening again and things like that," said Doug Beachy, a franchise owner in Cincinnati. "I like the personal interaction, and like many families in today's economy, our guests typically can't invest huge sums of money in their cars. We try to help our guests out as best we can and give proper advice as far as what they can do to keep their car safely on the road for as long as possible."
