Now is the time to be your own boss.

Become a Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise Owner.

Auto repair is a big industry with big potential. Throughout times of both prosperity and recession, the automotive repair industry has thrived. The reason why is simple: Americans rely on their cars. Maintaining and repairing our vehicles isn't an extravagance—it's often a necessity. Hard economic times mean that people are driving their vehicles for longer, rather than buying something new.

U.S. auto repair industry statistics:

  • There were 276.1 million cars on the road in 2019
  • The average age of U.S. vehicles was 11.8 in 2019 (an all-time high)
  • Average vehicle age has risen by 17% in the past decade
  • On average, Americans spend more than $817 a year on car maintenance/repairs
  • More than $125 billion/year is spent on maintenance/repairs overall

No automotive background? No problem!

One of the key things that sets CBA apart from other automotive service franchises is that most of our franchisees didn’t come from an automotive background. We want franchisees that can see the business from a customer’s perspective. We don’t want to be like other auto repair shops who may be great on repairs but weak on overall customer experience. We want our stores to be clean, friendly, professional, convenient and — most of all — caring and compassionate. We look for franchisees who share our values, and we have developed robust training and support to take care of the rest.

Hear From Some of Our Franchisees

  • "They have a lot of honesty and integrity, and that extends not only to the way they treat customers, but the way they treat franchisees and the way that employees are treated, too."

    Blair Jordan

  • "People don’t understand auto repair, and they need someone dependable they can trust, someone who will tell them truth."

  • "How would you treat that customer if it was your mom, or your grandmother? You’d take care of them the right way. That’s really what we fall on, and we trust God for the results."
