Establishing Our Quality Auto Repair Franchises

We understand that deciding to become a franchisee is no small feat and is a big decision. However, during the franchise process our entire team is with you through the journey. We are there with you for support while training you and recruiting the right people, but also of building the facility from the ground up. Some franchisees are surprised to see the amount of care and precision that goes into this process, but in our experience, this approach is key to establishing both a vibrant facility and a business that is poised for success.

How Long Will It Take?

At Christian Brothers Automotive, we don't buy existing auto repair facilities, change the sign, and call it a day. Instead, we carefully select and purchase land, then design and build a facility that meets the standards we know will best serve our franchisee and future Christian Brothers Automotive customers. This process takes approximately 18-24 months. Our commitment to this process is critical to properly bringing the Christian Brothers Automotive brand to a new community. We've never closed any of our 160+ locations and believe that our diligence with this process is part of the reason why.

Josh Wall, our VP of Franchise Development, puts it best: ”The commercial real estate market is dynamic and competitive. Many different retail and commercial concepts are constantly vying for the best locations to place their businesses. We compete in this marketplace, but do not deviate from our site selection criteria which has served us well for more than 21 years. A few of those key criterion are: demographics, psychographics, property size, price, zoning, traffic counts, nearby synergy partners and many others as well."

Christian Brothers will work hard to negotiate the very best price and terms it can to afford us the opportunity to do proper due diligence, permitting processes with the city and finally build the highest quality building in automotive repair. This is part of what we are known for in the marketplace and will continue make this a top priority in our new store development program.”
