Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise Cost and Requirements for 2024


Whether we are in a recession or prosperity, the automotive repair industry has thrived, due greatly to the fact that Americans rely on their cars. Thus, it is safe to say that maintaining and repairing a car isn't a luxury - it is a necessity. If investing in an automotive repair franchise is something that interests you, then the Christian Brothers Automotive franchise should be on your list to consider. Founded in 1982 and franchising since 1996, the concept for the brand came when its founder Mark Carr prayed for the path to a new vocation. At Sunday school the next day, he was asked to help run an automotive franchise. Over that time, the brand has grown to 30 locations in about half of the United States. The brand strives to live by the Biblical quote, "Love Thy Neighbor." They do that by being honest with customers, which can be rare as automotive service providers notoriously raise prices for customers who don't know that much about cars, thus benefiting from their ignorance. As a franchise owner with the brand, you will be trained to recognize how disruptive an automotive issue can be for our customers and to resolve the situation as honestly, swiftly, and reliably as possible. You will never get an unexpected or surprising repair with the automotive franchise, which is why customers trust the brand and come back when their cars need to be repaired. If you are looking for an automotive franchise that offers a great service and strong principals, look no further than the Christian Automotive franchise.
