Christian Brothers Automotive officials said they have firmly planted roots in faith, honesty and trust and now want to branch into Fishers.
The car company’s mission is to “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Founder and CEO Mark Carr opened the first Christian Brothers Automotive in 1982 in Mission Bend, Texas, with the goal, he said, of providing an uncommonly great experience for customers throughout the nation.
The company is seeking local entrepreneurs to expand the Christian Brothers Automotive franchise throughout Indianapolis and the surrounding suburbs.
“We prefer local business leaders who are connected to the community to join our franchise system in order to make sure our values and mission are a fit for local consumers, and we’re looking forward to finding those folks in Fishers,” said Josh Wall, chief development officer.
Christian Brothers Automotive officials said Fisher is an ideal place to find franchise partners and open additional Christian Brothers Automotive locations.
“As Fishers continues to revitalize and develop its downtown area and grow as a market, more people will be looking for car care they can trust to get to work every day,” Wall said.
Wall said Christian Automotive Brothers shops feel more like home and provide a no-hassle sales experience. Besides servicing cars, Wall said the company also places a strong emphasis on helping the communities they serve. Nationally, the company contributes to many charities and ministries, and the company encourages local franchisees to take an active role in making a positive impact in their community.
Since 1982, Christian Brothers Automotive has expanded to more than 170 locations in 25 states. The company plans on targeting 20 new locations this year.
“Our goal is to inform customers in Fishers, consult with them and give them the keys in the decision-making process on what needs to happen with regular maintenance and corrective maintenance,” Wall said.
