Why 'Entrepreneur' Magazine Says Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise Is a Best Bet

National Publication Places Christian Brothers Automotive Franchise on the List of Top 500 Franchises in the Country for the Fifth Year in a Row

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 3, 2015) - Christian Brothers made Entrepreneur magazine's annual Franchise 500 list, which ranks franchises nationwide in terms of performance and opportunity for success. This year's list finds the auto repair franchise ranked at 249 -- that's 18 places higher than in 2014, and Christian Brothers has made the list each year since 2011.

The reason Christian Brothers is zooming up the national publication's annual list is simple: franchise owners treat their customers as brothers and sisters, and they act with honesty, integrity, and respect. Christian Brothers franchises are locally owned by franchisees who value their reputation in the community and who want to give their customers a reliable destination for outstanding service in the auto repair industry. Ever since the company started franchising in 1996, not a single Christian Brothers Automotive franchise has closed.

Even though America is a car culture -- best evidenced by the fact that Christian Brothers serviced 451,000 cars in 2014 -- the industry is rife with negative connotations. Since 1996, Christian Brothers has worked to establish an auto service franchise people know and trust -- and their efforts show.

Christian Brothers is the "nice difference" in the industry
At Christian Brothers, the buildings are attractive, the lobby is like an upscale hotel lobby, and franchises offer a complimentary shuttle that allows people to drop their cars off for service, get a ride to work or home, then get a ride back to the shop.

Employees always explain vehicle repairs and will show and explain anything a customer has questions about. Christian Brothers takes a customer's budget and the way they use their vehicle into account when making recommendations for the best way to keep everything safe and well-maintained.

"I try to improve the lives of my customers," said Jonita White, a Christian Brothers automotive franchise owner in Frisco, Texas. "When somebody brings their car in, they are often having a stressful day -- and it's even harder for women because so many feel like they have been taken advantage of by auto repair places in the past. With me being a people person and loving the Lord, I make sure my staff and technicians are honest and upfront with customers about what their vehicle needs."

An auto repair service customers and franchisees know and trust
Christian Brothers customers know that when they bring their cars in for service at a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise, they are going to get honest work done by the best talent the industry has to offer. Mechanics love working for Christian Brothers because they offer the unusual perk of being closed on the weekends, giving them more time to spend with their families. Working bays are clean and well-lit, and every mechanic is able to explain to the customer exactly what they are doing and how much it will cost.

Because Christian Brothers is a faith-based company, franchise owners get to live their faith in their business, further displaying the integrity of the company's work to customers.

"I like that I'm free to express my faith," says Jeff Toth, a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise owner in Katy, Texas. "Both of my businesses have a stack of free Bibles on the counter for anyone who may need one or would like to read one while they're here. It helps me remember who I represent as a Christian in the way I do business."
