Christian Brothers Automotive features a location finder on each page of its website as of May 2015. The website's Locations section also lists the address, telephone number and hours for all of the company's shops and indicates the location of each on a map of the United States.
The Christian Brothers website lists over 140 locations in 19 states. More than half are in Texas.
Mark Carr, previously a salesman in an unrelated industry, founded the company in 1982 with a business partner he met through his church, and they opened their first auto repair shop in a Houston suburb. In 1996, after helping a friend open his own successful auto repair shop, Carr began offering Christian Brothers Automotive franchise opportunities within the state of Texas. The company soon opened locations in other states as well.
Christian Brothers Automotive unveiled a plan in 2008 to reach about 200 locations by 2017.
