What Can A Revenue Model Tell You About A Franchise Opportunity?

CHRISTIAN BROTHERS AUTOMOTIVE’S BUSINESS MODEL IS A ‘NICE DIFFERENCE’ IN FRANCHISING

Christian Brothers is not like other franchise companies that charge royalties based on a percentage of revenue — whether the business is profitable or not. Instead, we wait until franchise partners have become profitable and are able to pay themselves a living wage.

Christian Brothers likes to use the phrase “nice difference” to explain how we’re different than our competitors. The phrase also applies to franchisees, thanks in part to a revenue model that’s quite unusual in the franchise industry.

Christian Brothers is a highly rated, faith-based, auto repair franchise with a unique financial model. We assume a majority of the risk by procuring land and constructing “built-to-suit” buildings, which the franchisee then manages.

Unlike most franchises that charge royalties based on a percentage of revenue — whether the business is profitable or not — we wait until franchise partners have become profitable and are able to pay themselves a living wage. We split profits with franchisees once they are making money.

“People looking for a franchise opportunity will find that a modest investment with us could very well become a multimillion-dollar business,” says CEO Mark Carr. “Not only are those up-front costs minimal, but our management support helps our franchisees become profitable.”

Christian Brothers offers another nice difference to franchisees — we believe in more than making money. We also believe in taking time to honor God, to be with friends and family and to serve the community. That’s why our businesses are closed on the weekends — which is incredibly unusual for an auto repair business.

We offer complimentary shuttle service for customers during working hours, Monday through Friday. That way they have little need for auto repair services on the weekends.

“I do a lot of the shuttles,” says Blair Jordan, a franchisee in Spring, Texas. “It gives me a chance to connect with customers and get to know them on a personal level.”
