An Ode to the Industry: Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise Owners Share Their Love for Automotive Service

Christian Brothers Automotive (CBA) stands out as an automotive service destination fueled by love, integrity, and genuine community spirit. Beyond repairing cars, our mission is rooted in forging connections, celebrating victories, and navigating the road to success together. Whether veterans of the industry or first-time franchise owners, our Franchisees embody this philosophy through every aspect of their work. Recently, we asked some of our Franchise Owners what they love most about the automotive industry.

John and McKenzie Coleman didn’t have prior experience in car maintenance or repair before opening their CBA location in Covington, LA. However, with their business acumen, customer service experience, and the additional support they received from our Home Office team, John and McKenzie were able to hit the ground running in opening their first CBA shop. Three years later, they continue to serve guests and drive joy through our people-first approach to car repair.

“We decided to franchise with CBA after falling in love with the people who run the company,” McKenzie said. “They consistently put others before themselves…and inspire us to love on everyone around us and lead our team with love and servant hearts. I kept waiting for the ball to drop, for the dream to implode; it must be too good to be true. Here we are almost three years into our journey with the CBA team, and franchising in this industry is just getting better.”

In Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Franchisee Andrew Slemp was introduced to CBA when working at his family’s franchise location in high school. He said he wasn’t interested in the automotive industry as a career, but quickly fell in love with the business before deciding to become a Franchise Owner himself.

“I fell in love with the teamwork, the customer experience, being a part of the most respected shop in town, and building the best team possible,” Andrew said. “Overall, I just love coaching—CBA allows me to be a coach, an owner, and a general manager. It’s a lot of fun.”

Some Franchisees were called to business ownership with CBA for a different reason altogether. Tammie Green recalls being called by God to provide her local community of Shawnee, KS with ethical and excellent automotive service.

McKenzie, Andrew, and Tammie are only a few examples of how our Franchisees find joy in franchising in the auto repair industry. From our Franchisees and Home Office staff to our Service Team Members, CBA is reshaping the auto repair industry one shop at a time.

McKenzie puts it this way:

“We have guests come in that are in crisis and we get to fix that crisis. Our technicians are heroes. Our service advisors have been counselors and encouragers. It is nothing like any automotive experience you’ve ever had, unless, of course, you have been into another CBA.”

Christian Brothers Automotive is a franchise unlike any other. Franchising in the automotive industry offers a recession-proof investment opportunity, with the chance to help keep your community running. Our Franchise Owners and Operators are part of a family of individuals with shared goals of providing the best quality of service, driving joy, and fostering trust within their communities. No one is alone in the franchise journey with CBA—we have a full team by your side to assist you each step of the way, from initial interest to your grand opening and beyond.
