Christian Brothers Automotive stands out as a top auto repair franchise for many reasons. For starters, we instill faith and principles in an industry few trust. Our Nice Difference® acts as our guide to prioritize transparency, fairness, and put people first. Guests choose Christian Brothers Automotive for the same reasons. It’s our people-first philosophy that ensures every transaction and interaction is centered on respect, transparency, and integrity. Our guests trust that we'll do the right thing for them and their vehicle.
But equally important is Christian Brothers Automotive’s dedication to our franchise owners. We’ve built a successful brand around owners who have no automotive experience, and our business model is a testament to our comprehensive training and support. We’ve garnered many awards and accolades for our franchisee’s satisfaction and performance, and we couldn’t be more proud of the progress we’ve made.
While there are countless other franchise opportunities available, Christian Brothers Automotive franchisees can feel confident that they’ve chosen a balanced owner-operator model with one of the best reputations in the auto service industry.
When you franchise with Christian Brothers Automotive, you’re investing in a company that’s equally invested in you and your success.
We’ve been in business since 1982 and have more than 250 locations.
Guests come to us because of our Nice Difference Warranty®, and our industry reputation gives us better purchasing power and vendor relationships, so you can feel confident in offering the best parts at the best prices. These relationships with suppliers mean that they’re willing to warranty their parts, and we’re willing to warranty our labor.
We’re focused on franchisee satisfaction, and we’ve yet to close a single location.
Before opening a new Christian Brothers Automotive location, each of our franchisees receives more than 275 hours of extensive training. Our franchisees get the training and support they need to open their business with confidence.
With a home office support team member-to-franchisee ratio of 2:1, you can rest assured that we’re always there for you, for the life of your business. Every franchisee has fully dedicated individuals that they talk with on a routine basis: marketing specialist, store performance/business coach, accountant, and recruiter.
Our services are designed to give franchisees the ability to close up shop on Saturdays and Sundays, allowing employees to spend time with their families, worship, and pursue the other things that bring them fulfillment.
Our average unit volume is over $2M (based on current Franchise Disclosure Document reporting 2021 performance).
Owners and operators are paid an annual base salary out of their business for their entire franchise agreement. Additionally, existing franchisees can qualify for multi-units through their performance to leverage their investment.
We’ve been awarded: #1 by J.D. Power (three years in a row), Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500 ranking (seven years in a row), Forbes America’s Best Franchises (2019), Franchise Business Review’s 4th overall for franchisee satisfaction and #1 in the automotive category, Franchise Times’ Top 400: #1 for growth over the past year and #170 overall, and USAA’s Top Franchise Opportunity for Veterans.
Our guests are covered for 3 years/36,000 miles (whichever occurs last), both for parts and labor. There’s nothing that compares to it in the industry!
As a member of VetFran, we offer veterans a 10% discount off of their total franchise fee.
