Christian Brothers Automotive hosted a grand opening of its new location at 148 Old Cherokee Road in Lexington on Wednesday, Feb. 6 with a ribbon cutting ceremony, a raffle, and lunch.

“We are excited to build strong relationships based on integrity and trust with the residents of Lexington and to get to know the people we serve on a regular basis,” said Joshua Standridge, owner of Christian Brothers Automotive in Lexington. “We look forward to growing our business and aim to become the primary automotive repair shop in Lexington through personal care and continued community outreach.”

Christian Brothers partnered with the Greater Lexington Chamber and Visitors Center for the ceremonial ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. Afterward, guests enjoyed a BBQ lunch, raffle prizes, and complimentary goody bags. Additionally, customers who visit Christian Brothers Automotive Lexington the week of Feb. 3 – 8 can enter to win a year of free oil changes.

A Lexington native, Standridge is a National Guardsman going on his fourteenth year of military service. Prior to opening Christian Brothers in Lexington, Standridge worked in nuclear engineering for the U.S. Navy and as a project manager for Westinghouse International. A father of three, Standridge understands the value of hard work and continued persistence. He looks forward to establishing long-standing relationships with his customers built on respect and a mutual understanding.

Each new opening gives us an opportunity to define what automotive repair means to a community, and to lessen the stress on customers who depend on their vehicles every day,” said Mark Carr, founder and CEO of Christian Brothers Automotive. “I’m confident that Joshua’s passion for providing quality service makes him a perfect fit for the Lexington area.”

The new shop, situated at 148 Old Cherokee Road, joins more than 190 Christian Brothers Automotive locations across the nation, all of which are based on the same guiding principle: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Based on a business model that believes taking your car to be serviced shouldn’t be chore, Christian Brothers offers a wide array of services, from simple upkeep and maintenance to preventative services addressing issues that would otherwise require more expensive repair and replacement down the road. A complete list of services can be found on the brand’s website:

Founded in Mission Bend, Texas in 1982, Christian Brothers Automotive has successfully changed the way customers think about the auto service experience. From the waiting room environment of each shop, which feels more like a well-appointed family room in a home, to the hassle-free interaction with shop owners and managers, Christian Brothers Automotive provides customers with an informative and comforting assurance.
