What We Look for in Potential Franchisees

In our over 40 years of operations, Christian Brothers Automotive has never had to close a location due to lack of business. With over 250 locations, we know how to open an auto repair business and believe the key to our success is teaming up with franchise owners who are passionate about making a positive impact in the communities they serve and growing their businesses. 

Our successful brand is built on franchise owners who have no auto experience. That’s right: you don’t have to be a car expert to be a Christian Brothers Automotive franchisee. In fact, 85% of our franchisees had no automotive experience prior to opening their franchise. You don’t have to love cars or understand how they work to consider the Christian Brothers Automotive opportunity!

Ideal Franchise Owners

At Christian Brothers Automotive, we’re all about exceptional and trustworthy service for our guests and franchisees. Our ideal franchise owners to open an auto repair franchise are:


Individuals that may have never worked in the automotive industry: this perspective has allowed us to see the auto industry from the inside out and provide extraordinary guest service.


Candidates from varied professional backgrounds: whether or not franchisees have experience with cars isn’t our focus – we look to all areas of expertise.


Those with valuable leadership experience: We have found that team leadership experience, a background in sales, self-directed personal development, career progression, and the desire to make an impact on the local community outweigh experience in the automotive industry.


Owners who are passionate about running a business based on biblical principles.

Franchise Owner Traits

Over the years, Christian Brothers Automotive has established some key characteristics that we believe make for an excellent potential franchisee. We’re not looking for perfect people: our franchise owners come from all walks of life and are up to the challenge, invested in bettering the lives of others, and are ready to stay on top of a competitive industry.

We’ve found that operating your business with a true servant leadership approach can be one of your greatest pathways to success. You’ll need to be assertive enough to make the tough decisions but also guided by cultural principles. Ideal candidates should also embody our core values of neighborliness, joy, excellence, and transparency while helping others.

Our franchise owners are the leaders of their teams, and as such, should have a natural gravity and charisma. They have grit – innate drive plus the ability to overcome obstacles – and business intelligence to see the bigger picture. While a passion to succeed is helpful to achieve lofty goals and celebrate wins, our ideal candidate also possesses a high degree of coachability.
