About Us

A Different Kind of Automotive Franchise

Instilling Faith & Principles in an Auto Repair Industry Few Trust

At Christian Brothers Automotive, we’re more than just vehicle repair. In the words of Christian Brothers Automotive Franchisee, Mike Cotter, our top priority is serving others; we just happen to do that by fixing cars. Through our people-first approach to car care, we strive to be a light in the automotive industry, separating ourselves from our competitors by providing our teams and guests with transparency, support and the peace of mind to know that when they step into one of our shops, they’re in capable and caring hands.

When Christian Brothers Automotive first opened in 1982, our founders recognized an appetite for a different type of auto care. Our unique approach offers an experience that is unlike what most people typically expect from their mechanic. It’s what enabled us to start franchising in 1996, and what ultimately led us to having over 250 automotive franchise locations operating nationwide today. We have never closed a single location and continue to build upon one of the best reputations in the auto service industry.

Competitive Advantages That Set Us Apart

At Christian Brothers Automotive we not only believe, but we have proven that there is another way to thrive in the vehicle franchise industry: treating our franchisees and guests like family and ensuring that every experience is predicated on respect, transparency, and integrity.

This approach doesn't just uniquely benefit our guests; it also benefits our employees. Our Nice Difference® services make it easier for car owners to drop off their cars during the week, and for our franchisees to close their shops on Saturdays and Sundays. This gives our employees the critical time they need to spend with their families and engage in other pursuits beyond their commitment to Christian Brothers Automotive.

As a company, we are focused on franchisee satisfaction. To us, our franchisees are close team members and trusted ambassadors of the Christian Brothers Automotive brand. We know they are committed to our values and to providing quality guest care, so we, in turn, want to provide them with the quality support they need to succeed. That is why we are so proud that, for ten consecutive years, Christian Brothers Automotive has been among the Top 50 franchises for franchisee satisfaction ranked by Franchise Business Review.

Zero Automotive Experience Needed

You Don’t Need to Be a Car Expert to Be Really Good at Being a Franchisee

It’s true: you don’t have to be a car expert to be really good at being a franchisee. Don’t believe us? At least 85% of our franchisees had no automotive experience prior to opening their vehicle franchise – and we love that! 

This perspective has allowed us to see the auto industry from the inside out and provide extraordinary guest service. We’ve built a successful brand around owners who have no automotive experience because you don’t have to love cars or understand how they work to excel at our car repair franchise opportunity.

Whether or not franchisees have experience with cars isn't our focus; we look to all areas of expertise. We have found that team leadership experience, sales experience, self-directed personal development, career progression, and making an impact on the local community outweigh experience in the automotive industry.

Biblical Principles

Our Core Values and Culture Commitments

At Christian Brothers Automotive, it’s far more important for franchisee candidates to align with our values over possessing industry experience.

Some values we look for prospective owners to embody include:

  • Embrace and encourage diverse perspectives.
  • Take personal responsibility instead of placing blame elsewhere.
  • Commit to a spirit of giving and helping others.
  • Seek first to understand, then to be understood.
Focus Arrow
  • Never say anything about anyone we would not say to the individual directly.
  • Communicate honestly with purpose and humility.
  • Commit to inclusive communication, especially with those impacted by the resulting action.
  • Resolve differences timely and respectfully.
High Level
  • Act with integrity, making only agreements we are willing, able, and intend to keep.
  • When faced with a challenge, find a solution, and resolve it, or bring it to someone who can.
  • Be what we expect of others.
  • Commit to serving others and building servant leaders.
  • Seek to glorify God in all we say and do, acknowledging that our success is a gift from God.
  • Have fun in the process.
  • Give people the benefit of the doubt; expect they have good intentions.
  • Always look for an opportunity to grow and learn.
