Christian Brothers Rapidly Expanding in Denver Area

Dec. 11, 2014

Dec. 11, 2014—Texas-based auto repair franchise Christian Brothers Automotive has recently opened four locations in the Denver area. It plans to open five more by the end of 2016 and a 10th store in 2017.

It's part of a national expansion for Christian Brothers Automotive, which has been named the top automotive franchise for three years in a row by Franchise Business Review, which tracks franchisee satisfaction. The 18-year-old franchise system has more than 130 locations nationwide. It has never closed a facility.

Christian Brothers has already opened four locations in the greater Denver metro area: Centennial (14755 E. Arapahoe Road), Castle Rock (5721 New Abbey Lane), Highlands Ranch (1340 Town Center Drive), and Lafayette (517 Stacy Court).

Locations are scheduled to open next year in Parker (near Jordan Road and Mangano Lane), Ken Caryl (near Simms and Bowles Roads), and Fort Collins. More locations will open in 2016 in Greeley and Loveland, with a Broomfield location coming online in 2017. Christian Brothers is looking for franchise partners for several of the locations under construction.

Christian Brothers is unusual in the franchise industry because it does not charge a royalty based on revenue. Instead, it splits profits with franchisees and doesn't take a penny until the franchisee is making money. Anyone interested in the business model can study it in-depth at
