Experienced Aftermarket Automotive Entrepreneur to Introduce Expert, People-First Service and Repair to the Harbor City

MELBOURNE, Fla. – Ranked number one in Customer Satisfaction among all Aftermarket Full-Service Maintenance and Repair companies two times in a row* by J.D. Power, Christian Brothers Automotive is now bringing comforting and convenient auto care to Melbourne.
Serving drivers living, working and commuting in Melbourne and surrounding Brevard County communities, the new shop is situated at 6315 North Wickham Road, amid a vibrant residential and commercial hub. It is open six days a week, from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 8:00 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. With service bay doors now open for business, the shop offers a variety of professional auto care services, from simple upkeep and repairs to preventative maintenance.

Under the ownership of local franchisee and Melbourne resident Michael Longchamp, Christian Brothers Automotive aims to provide repair and maintenance services for drivers in the area while also serving as a trusted source for vehicle care. The brand’s hallmark of quality stems from skilled technicians who provide service centered on respect, transparency and integrity.

“We have a unique opportunity with the opening to truly demonstrate a new approach to car service in Brevard County, for residents here in Melbourne and the nearby communities,” said Longchamp, who has over a decade of experience in the automotive industry. “It will be clear to our customers that you don’t have to sacrifice high quality service for affordability.”

Prior to opening Christian Brothers Automotive in Melbourne, Longchamp, who is 34, owned and operated a successful multi-state mobile car detailing and metal polishing company. Prior to that, he worked as a service advisor and manager in the car dealership sector. Investing in the Christian Brothers Automotive franchise opportunity appealed to Longchamp because he aligns his approach to business with the brand’s values and he shares the company’s desire to appeal to customers seeking top tier automotive care in a more cost effective manner.
“Michael is a perfect fit for Christian Brothers Automotive. He is remarkably driven and serves as a fantastic ambassador for the brand’s entry into the Melbourne market,” said Donnie Carr, President of Christian Brothers Automotive. “I can’t imagine anyone better to provide guests with reliable service, meeting their needs with honesty and dependability.”

Joining more than 230 Christian Brothers Automotive locations across the nation, the Melbourne shop follows the guiding principle: “Love your neighbor as yourself.” Built on the idea that having your car serviced should be easy, Christian Brothers Automotive offers free shuttle service, educational estimates and complimentary courtesy inspections for guests. From simple upkeep such as an oil change to more involved repairs and engine diagnostics, Christian Brothers Automotive addresses automotive issues as soon as they’re found, that could otherwise require expensive repair or replacement down the line. Year after year, Christian Brothers Automotive Melbourne will keep cars on the road running smoothly and reliably.

Founded in Mission Bend, Texas in 1982, Christian Brothers Automotive has strived to change the way that guests think about their auto care experience. From the waiting room environment of each shop – which feels more like a comfortable family room – to complimentary shuttle rides and digital vehicle inspections that take guests under the hood of their vehicle right alongside the technician, Christian Brothers Automotive has fostered automotive service that makes guests feel at home.
