Christian Brothers Automotive has announced the launch of a strategic franchise growth phase, with plans to expand into new markets.
Christian Brothers Automotive’s expansion plan calls for an increase to its footprint in key markets. With more than 170 units in 25 states, Christian Brothers Automotive is targeting markets in Chicago; Cleveland; Phoenix; Des Moines, Iowa; Richmond, Virginia; Indianapolis and St. Louis.
The brand plans to open up more than 20 new locations in 2018, with eight locations slated to open during the first quarter.
“At the foundation of our services is the understanding that consumers often feel taken advantage of by aftermarket automotive professionals, and through this growth strategy we are focused on building a trusting relationship with as many guests as possible,” said Josh Wall, vice president of franchise and strategic development of Christian Brothers Automotive. “In addition to the relationship we build with our guests, we pride ourselves on the collaborative, cooperative connection we establish with our franchisees. We’re looking for entrepreneurs who are leaders in their communities and committed to giving customers the keys to making the final decisions with their own cars.
“We’re in the perfect position to find new franchisees who are looking for a reliable business model and a meaningful partnership with a home office support team rooted in collaboration and providing a quality service to guests,” said Wall. “Our franchise opportunity provides business owners with a chance to take control of their professional life beyond what corporate America can provide and we’ve never been more confident in our current and future franchisee prospects.”
Based on a belief that taking a car to be serviced shouldn’t be chore, Christian Brother Automotive offers a wide array of services, from simple upkeep and maintenance to preventive services addressing issues that would otherwise require more expensive repair and replacement down the road.
