Auto service and repair is almost always a necessity in every community, but right now, we are experiencing national trends that are making this industry even more in demand. According to IHS Automotive, there are more than 250 million cars on the road in America and these car owners are keeping their cars longer and driving them further than any generation of drivers in the past. With the oldest fleet of cars on the road the United States has ever had—it's a good time to own an auto repair franchise.
However, this is only part of the equation—because, yes, there are auto services and franchises in most communities, but drivers and their families dread going to them. They don't want to wait around in unkempt waiting areas, deal with high pressure "upsells", or wonder whether or not they've been overcharged or ripped off. This is where Christian Brothers Automotive comes in. For more than three decades, we have been changing the way customers experience auto service.
When customers come to a Christian Brothers Automotive center:
- They are invited to wait in a clean, hotel-inspired waiting area.
- They have access to free Wi-Fi.
- They are offered complimentary hot and cold beverages.
- They have access to a complimentary shuttle service.
- They will be offered our comprehensive Courtesy Inspection.
- They can have transparent discussions about their car with our professionals.
- They are treated with respect from our friendly staff.
Has this approach—which we call our Nice difference.® —been successful? We have been franchising since 1996 and now have more than 160 auto repair franchise locations nationwide. We have never closed a single location due to poor business and continue to build upon one of the best reputations in the auto service industry.
Why Partner with Christian Brothers Automotive?
Yes, customer service is a cornerstone of any service business, but Christian Brothers Automotive is an auto service franchise opportunity that is about more than just that. For example, we put a distinct emphasis on the success of our franchise partners. When we open a new location, we make an upfront investment in the land. We also provide a high level of training and support to ensure that our partners have everything they need for success in their local marketplace.
Our mindfulness for those that work with us also applies to our franchisees employees, as well. Because our Nice Difference® services makes it easier for car owners to drop off their car during the week, our franchisees are able to close their shops on Saturdays and Sundays, giving their employees the critical time they need to spend with their family and engage other pursuits beyond their commitment to Christian Brothers Automotive.
