AUTO REPAIR FRANCHISE RANKED #210 IN REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE SERVICES
Christian Brothers Automotive has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500® list, considered the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Christian Brothers has been rated second in the “Repair and Maintenance” category of the “Automotive” section and number 210 overall.
The prestigious award validates the progress the company has made in the past year. In 2018, Christian Brothers added 21 new franchise locations, a record number of openings for the brand that brought the total to more than 190 locations in 25 states throughout the United States.
“We are honored to receive this ranking and proud to see the result of all that we have invested into our infrastructure to make this growth happen,” said Josh Wall, chief development officer for Christian Brothers. "We look forward to building upon this expansion in 2019 as we form new relationships, build on our strategic growth efforts and offer our existing franchisees continued support.”
The key factors that go into Entrepreneur’s evaluation include costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. All franchises are given a cumulative score based on more than 150 data points, and the 500 franchises with the highest cumulative scores become the Franchise 500® in ranking order.
“As we celebrate 40 years of producing the Franchise 500, it’s a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology.”
