We are starting 2022 on a high note. Recently, it was announced that Christian Brothers Automotive has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500® list and ranked #3 for “Repair and Maintenance Services” in the “Automotive” category. We are honored to receive this recognition from Entrepreneur magazine for the fifth year in a row, and as our President and CEO Donnie Carr explains, this will propel Christian Brothers to further our franchise achievements in the new year.
“Heading into 2022, we cannot wait to see what the next year has in store for our franchise system,” said Carr. “I look forward to strategically growing our footprint, strengthening and supporting our existing partners, and pursuing new opportunities in the year ahead.”
In addition to the notable ranking, Christian Brothers enters 2022 fueled by the momentum of many milestones and achievements reached in the last year.
