We are proud to have established ourselves as a leading franchise in the automotive repair industry, particularly for Military Veterans seeking entrepreneurship opportunities. We have deep gratitude for the invaluable contributions made by these courageous individuals, and we are committed to assisting them in their journey of reintegrating into civilian life.
According to the 2021 Annual Business Survey (ABS), approximately 320,864 (5.6%) of employer businesses in 2020 were Veteran-owned and in fact, the number of Veteran-owned businesses doubled in 2021. More than 10% of new business owners were Veteran-owned in 2021, up from just 5.4% in 2019. As more Veterans eagerly look for ways to develop their careers in the franchise industry, CBA is here to help Veterans leverage the skills that helped them serve their country to set up a thriving business in their community.
So how do we put our franchise owners on the stable path toward long-term success in the automotive repair franchise industry?

We’re proud to rank on Franchise Business Review as a Top Franchise for Veterans
The satisfaction of our Veteran partners is of the utmost importance to us as we want to see them thrive under our franchise model, which is why earning accolades to confirm our efforts is incredibly rewarding. We were honored to be named the No. 1 Best Performing Veteran Franchise by USAA magazine in 2012, ranked as a top franchise for Veterans by Entrepreneur in 2022 and designated a top franchise for Veterans by FBR in 2023. While we are there to support them, every step of the way, our Veteran franchise owners are the ones putting in the work to realize the potential of this opportunity and we could not be prouder of the results.
One-fifth of our current franchisees are Veterans
We have a rich history of supporting Veteran franchisees and one fifth of our current franchise system is made up of those who have served. Recognizing the exceptional skills and dedication of armed service members, we also understand the unique challenges faced by Veterans transitioning back to civilian life, so we aim to make this transition as seamless and fulfilling as possible.
