CHRISTIAN BROTHERS AUTOMOTIVE FRANCHISE OWNERS GET TO LIVE THEIR FAITH IN THEIR BUSINESS
In an industry fraught with negative connotations, Christian Brothers Automotive franchise owners are a bright light, serving customers with integrity, fairness and honesty. Our growing customer base has taken notice — in 2014, 451,000 cars were serviced by Christian Brothers Automotive, and since we started franchising in 1996 not a single location has closed. In fact, in 2015, we will be adding 20 locations nationwide.
Christian Brothers is a highly rated, faith-based, automotive franchise with a unique financial model. Christian Brothers assumes a majority of the risk by purchasing and constructing “built-to-suit” buildings, which the franchisee then manages. Christian Brothers does not charge a franchisee based on top-line revenues like virtually every other franchisor, but instead on a share of the profits, which is calculated after expenses. Franchisees also pay themselves a salary before they pay the franchisor a nickel.
Faith is at the heart of how Christian Brothers automotive franchises conduct their business, and we only partner with those who want to live their faith in the workplace. Our company values and the way we treat our customers reflect the Biblical principle: love thy neighbor as thyself.
“The Christian Brothers Automotive mission statement is to glorify God by providing ethical and excellent automotive repair service to our customers,” says Jade Stanford, owner of Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise in Concord, North Carolina. “In my job, that’s what I want to do. Those things have to intersect. It’s not God over there and job over here. God is in everything. I appreciate being able to go into business where that is embraced, where that is the standard.”
Faith has remained central to our business and guided Christian Brothers CEO Mark Carr in his relationships with our customers and business partners. When we embarked upon franchising in 1996, we began attracting others who had a servant’s heart and enjoyed having the freedom to live their faith 24 hours a day — without feeling as if they had to leave it at the front door.
“After I ran across the Christian Brothers’ website and viewed the company’s mission statement and its ideals, I talked to [Vice-President] Josh Wall. I was drawn to the mission and the history of Christian Brothers,” says Doug Beachy, owner of a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise in Miami Township, Ohio. “I like that it is firmly faith-based, has a commitment to integrity and has a dedication to excellent service. The principles of the brand were all attractive to me. This was further cemented upon meeting the corporate team and witnessing the integrity of the company up close.”
