About Our Christian Brothers Store


My name is Brad Copland, and I am the owner of Christian Brothers Automotive- Bradenton. Although I am new to the automotive repair industry, I am not new to the world of business, customer service, and people management. I have about 30 years of finance and accounting experience in large multi-national organizations across the food, beverage, and energy industries. My wife’s name is Michelle, and she currently works as an Accounting Assistant. We have been married for 26 years and have two children, Cullen, and Kiana. Cullen is 25 years old and graduated from Piedmont College in 2018. He is currently the General Manager/Operator of an Atlanta area gusto! restaurant. Kiana is a 21-year-old graduate of Samford University in Birmingham, AL. She will be working as a nurse at Children’s Hospital of Alabama.

I pursued a Christian Brothers Automotive franchise because I respected and supported the company’s values and focus on faith. In addition, while other concepts talk about partnership, Christian Brothers Automotive demonstrates a significant commitment to partnership through site selection, capital investment, training, marketing, and ongoing support.

As a consumer, I have experienced many of the challenges and frustrations associated with automotive repair facilities. My objective is to create differentiated customer experience by focusing on honesty, transparency, excellence, service, and value creation. To support this goal, Christian Brothers Automotive – Bradenton’s facility includes a nine-bay shop outfitted with the latest equipment and programming tools; an experienced team of professional technicians and staff; a comfortable waiting room with complimentary beverages and Wi-Fi; a complimentary shuttle service; and a 3 year or 36,000-mile warranty (whichever is more advantageous to the customer). Furthermore, I will be onsite every day to help ensure the team stays focused on providing ethical and excellent repair work as well as outstanding customer service.
