Christian Brothers Automotive is a national automotive service franchisor based in Houston, Texas and founded in 1982. They have grown with 100% store success in 21 years of franchising, never having a location close. Christian Brothers focuses on superior customer service and “loving your neighbor as yourself”. Each Christian Brothers franchise is locally owned and operated and provides ethical and excellent full-service automotive repair to the surrounding community.
Over 250 million cars are on the road in the United States, and every one of them needs maintenance and repair. The average age of a car is almost 11.5 years according to IHS Automotive, and that average is expected to reach nearly 12 years by 2019. IHS also says new car buyers are planning to keep cars more than a decade and drive them in excess of 200,000 miles. It is a good time to own an auto repair franchise.
Unique Business Model
Business ownership offers the most direct path to financial independence. Thousands of new businesses open every day, but many of these fail within the first year. Every small business owner owes it to himself to ask the right questions before starting such an endeavor.
That is where we come in. Our partnership and expertise help position you for success. Franchised businesses succeed far more often than independent start-ups and Christian Brothers franchises enjoy the highest success rate in the industry. In fact, we celebrate a 100 percent success rate!
None of our local franchises have ever failed. Since 1982, every Christian Brothers automotive franchise has been in continuous operation. We are proud of that fact. A Christian Brothers franchise remains one of the best small business opportunities for many reasons. When you consider your own financial and family goals, do any of these things sound appealing?
- Owning a Christian-based business
- Income growth
- Spending more time with your family
- Owning a local franchise – no more traveling for work
- Retiring early
- Leaving a legacy for your family
- Building equity, year by year, in your business
- Controlling more of your time because you work for yourself

Franchise Owner's Stories
They believe in treating others as you would want to be treated, and it shows in the way they deal with folks. Their ethical standards are high, and that’s really important to my wife and me — honesty and integrity not only in the way you treat your customers, but the way you treat your associates, your suppliers; treating the folks you work with on a regular basis just as well as you treat your customers.

My wife and I heard great things about Christian Brothers from another owner before we went through the mutual evaluation process. The positive comments we heard were actually understated! I never dreamed that I would have a chance to work with a group of people who are applying their Christian beliefs in their business practices. I had been praying for a chance to share my faith. Even though my Christian Brothers Automotive franchise has been open for a short time, I've had many opportunities to share my faith with customers and to give glory to God. We really feel like we’re part of a big family at Christian Brothers Automotive.
