We know that the decision to become a franchise owner is a big one, and with it, you may have questions along the way. Christian Brothers Automotive is happy to answer any queries from prospective franchisees who are interested in investing in our opportunity. Here are some frequently asked questions and our answers to those questions.
Christian Brothers Automotive is proud to offer a remarkably low investment for our franchise owners. We look for franchisees who have a net worth of at least $250,000 and the ability to make an initial investment of $85,000 towards the total $135,000 franchise fee. CBAC allows the remaining $50,000 of the franchise fee to be included in the franchisee’s SBA loan further limiting their need for a high amount of liquid cash available.

To open a brand new auto repair facility with Christian Brothers Automotive, we can confidently estimate total startup costs to range between $454,250 and $582,400. The vast majority of our new owners consider a 10-year Small Business Administration (SBA) loan to purchase their franchise, which can cover 82-83% of these costs.

Christian Brothers Automotive franchises open at 7 a.m. and close at 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are never open on Saturday and Sunday. While many guests are used to having their car serviced on the weekends, we offer creative ways to serve them during the week like providing a free shuttle service to and from their home or work. This allows our guests and our franchisees and their team members the luxury of spending more time with friends and family during the weekends.
