Business model sets auto repair franchise apart

Christian Brothers Automotive's unusual business model makes it unique in the automotive industry. First, Christian Brothers makes a large upfront investment to help franchise partners get started, paying to build the large, attractive brick buildings that help Christian Brothers stand out to customers. Second, unlike most franchises that charge royalties based on a percentage of revenue -- whether the business is profitable or not -- Christian Brothers waits until franchise partners have become profitable and able to pay themselves a living wage, and then splits profits. Christian Brothers does not make money until franchisees do.

Christian Brothers works to live up to its name by treating customers, franchisees and employees with dignity, respect and caring. The caring manifests itself in efforts to provide exceptional service to customers, and to find ways to make the auto repair experience less disruptive to customers' lives. Each store has a courtesy shuttle to help customers get to work -- or anywhere else -- and back while their car is being repaired. It alleviates stress and also makes it easy for customers to bring their vehicle in Monday-Friday. That's important, because Christian Brothers Automotive franchises are closed on Saturday.

Why close on Saturday? First, the shuttle eliminates the need for customers to chew up part of their weekend on car repair. Secondly, Saturdays off are a rare treat in the auto repair industry, and the perk helps Christian Brothers attract highly skilled mechanics, ensuring better service for customers. It also allows franchisees to spend weekends with their families, instead of at the shop.
