Christian Brothers Automotive Accelerates Franchise Growth to Meet Demand for Trustworthy Car Service and Repair

Renowned Brand Positioned to Turn the Ignition On 2018 National Franchise Expansion into New Markets

January 11, 2018 // Franchising.com // HOUSTON - Christian Brothers Automotive is putting more consumers across the country in the driver’s seat when it comes to making decisions on auto services and repair as the brand announced today the launch of a strategic franchise growth phase. The plan will shift the brand into high gear in 2018 with expansion into new markets.

Long distinguished as the most trustworthy auto repair company, Christian Brothers Automotive’s expansion plan calls for an increase to its footprint in key markets. With over 170 units in 25 states domestically, Christian Brothers Automotive is targeting markets in Chicago, IL; Cleveland, OH; Phoenix, AZ; Des Moines, IA; Richmond, VA; Indianapolis, IN and St. Louis, MO.

The brand plans to open up more than 20 new locations in 2018, with eight locations slated to open during the first quarter.

“At the foundation of our services is the understanding that consumers often feel taken advantage of by aftermarket automate professionals, and through this growth strategy we are focused on building a trusting relationship with as many guests as possible,” said Josh Wall, VP Franchise & Strategic Development of Christian Brothers Automotive. “In addition to the relationship we build with our guests, we pride ourselves on the collaborative, cooperative connection we establish with our franchisees. We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are leaders in their communities and committed to giving customers the keys to making the final decisions with their own cars.”

Along with the dawn of a new day for car care in more markets nationwide comes a refreshing new guiding principle accompanying the approach Christian Brothers Automotive takes with its customers: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Beyond just exemplary auto service, the brand takes a close interest in the health of its customers’ vehicles by approaching auto repair work with transparency, integrity and compassion.

“We’re in the perfect position to find new franchisees who are looking for a reliable business model and a meaningful partnership with a Home Office support team rooted in collaboration and providing a quality service to guests,” said Wall. “Our franchise opportunity provides business owners with a chance to take control of their professional life beyond what corporate America can provide and we’ve never been more confident in our current and future franchisee prospects.”

Based on a business model that taking your car to be serviced shouldn’t be chore, Christian Brother Automotive offers a wide array of services, from simple upkeep and maintenance to preventative services addressing issues that would otherwise require more expensive repair and replacement down the road. A complete list of services can be found on the brand’s website: www.cbac.com.

Founded in Mission Bend, Texas in 1982, Christian Brothers Automotive has successfully changed the way customers think about the auto service experience. From the waiting room environment of each shop, which feels more like a well-appointed family room in a home, to the hassle-free interaction with shop owners and managers, Christian Brothers Automotive provides customers with an informative and comforting assurance.

Ideal Christian Brothers Automotive franchisees are strong leaders with experience leading a team and love serving people. They prioritize giving back and engaging with their local community in order to ultimately make a difference for everyone around them. The estimated initial investment for a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise ranges from $458,950 and $555,350, with 82-83% of the investment typically financed over a 10-year period using Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. Interested individuals must also have a minimum net worth of $250,000 and $85,000 liquid capital to ensure additional funding is available while launching their franchise.
