HOUSTON (Aug. 10, 2016) — Christian Brothers Automotive (CBA) continues to build toward its goal of 200 franchised auto service stores in operation by 2017, having brought on board a dozen new franchisees in the past two years.
Typical CBA locations average 5,000 square feet in size with nine service bays, and feature a lobby with a “home-charm décor” that features upscale furniture, decorative lighting, artwork and hardwood floors.
All CBA facilities are staffed with Automotive Service Excellence (ASE) -certified technicians, according to the franchisor.
Most locations offer a basket of services that include air conditioning, alignments, batteries, brake repair, drivetrain, electrical, engine diagnostics, exhaust, filters, oil changes, power steering, state inspections (where applicable), suspension and transmission.
The Houston-based franchisor describes itself as a Christian business enterprise that “strives to honor Christ by providing loving customer service to those in our communities” and following the tenants of Matthew 22:39 to “love your neighbor as yourself.”
Earlier this year CBA was rated as one the U.S.'s fastest-growing franchises by Franchise Gator, an online directory of franchise and business opportunities.
