Christian Brothers Automotive: 20 years as a Christian owned franchise

Christian owned franchise celebrates 20 years of being a shining light in the auto repair industry

Christian Brothers Automotive is celebrating 20 years as a Christian owned franchise. Our Nice Difference has helped us to be a light in the auto repair industry, and it shines through in every aspect of the experience for over 500,000 guests we see every year.

Our Christian based franchise owners provide outstanding service, making for loyal and satisfied guests.

Our identity as a Christian franchise is what inspired Founder and CEO Mark Carr to make sure Christian Brothers Automotive was different. Everything in our shops, from the immaculate lobbies and repair bays to the highly trained technicians to the courtesy shuttle, is geared toward making the auto repair experience better for our guests, which is what makes our franchises successful.

Like any good business, we’re centered around people. Our franchise owners, their employees and our guests are the reasons we’ve come so far in 20 years, and the reasons we’ll continue to go far in the future.

The secret to our success

Outstanding service is the secret to our success; it makes our guests happy, and happy guests come back to see us again and again. They spread the word about us throughout the community, and we grow more successful simply by doing the right things, and doing them the best that we can.

Thanks to that approach, we’ve been blessed with steady, focused growth that has led to more than 150 locations across the country. Over the course of 20 years, we’ve helped more than 200 families live the American dream by owning their own businesses and sharing that success by employing more than 1000 people nationwide.

Building our future every day

Not only have we grown far beyond our humble beginnings, we’ve also never closed a single location. Our business model is centered around ensuring that our franchise owners have the support and resources they need to thrive in this business, even if they’ve never worked a day in the auto industry before. Very few of our franchise owners come from the automotive industry, which helps them bring an outside perspective, just like Carr had when he founded the company. Our extensive training and support bring new owners up to speed so they have the knowledge they need to run the business. We also help owners bring on board highly trained and qualified technicians with a deep commitment to service for our guests.

Beyond the initial training, we’re always there to provide ongoing support with anything a franchise owner might need, from accounting assistance to HR support. We can even help remotely troubleshoot issues with a guest’s car.

A pipeline for our continued success

Just as we’re committed to our guests’ positive experiences, we give each owner the tools to make their Christian owned franchise a great place for employees. Except for a few Saturdays when a location first opens, we’re open only from Monday through Friday, giving employees and owners some much-needed rest on the weekends to spend with family and friends.

On top of that, our franchise owners are committed to providing a true career and industry-leading work environments for employees. With initiatives like the Future Franchise Academy, we offer a powerful recruiting tool for franchise owners that attracts the best and the brightest, while creating a long-term talent pipeline that can lead employees to become managers or even own their own franchises.
