Why Now Is the Time to Team up with Christian Brothers

The Christian Brothers Automotive auto repair franchise can help you tap into an in-demand market with automotive repair industry statistics that position the industry to thrive in times of both prosperity and recession. The automotive service industry is recession-resistant because cars break down no matter the state of the economy. Most people need their cars to commute to work, not to mention those who drive for a living. Car owners depend on automotive service franchises for maintenance and repairs to keep their vehicles operating safely. 

In recent years, more drivers are choosing to hold on to their cars longer, increasing the demand for more repairs and replacement automotive parts. It's estimated that in 2021 there were more than 76M vehicles on the road over 16 years old in the U.S. Light vehicles recorded an average of 126,000 miles in 2020 with no signs of slowing down and all signs of keeping repair shops in business.  

Along with the rise in older cars on the road and the increasing complexities presented with newer vehicles, it's not surprising that the U.S. automotive repair industry has a combined annual revenue of about $115B; proof that ours is an industry that's not only essential and need-based but also constantly evolving and thriving.

No matter the vehicle or the issue, it takes professional training to diagnose and repair these cars, and that's where Christian Brothers Automotive comes in. We have the technology and expertise to get your guests back up and running as soon as possible.

Our Different Approach

We understand that a guest's vehicle is an essential component to their everyday life connecting them to the places and people that matter most. We redefined the auto service approach with our commitment to loving our neighbors.

We’re proud to do things differently at Christian Brothers Automotive. We take the time to train our franchise owners, so they and their teams are  prepared to resolve complicated repairs  as honestly, swiftly, and reliably as possible. We make a point of ensuring our guests are comfortable with the information we relay regarding the status of their vehicle and what the available options are to get it up and running at full capacity again. And we back our repairs with our industry-leading, Nice Difference® Warranty. We’re a different kind of automotive repair shop, in the best way possible.
