Cold Beers

Buckeye is one of many fast-growing communities in the Valley. There are a number of different businesses that are opening their doors to the welcoming population. From an automotive repair shop to a new housing development and a new spot to stop in and have a burger and beer, the Business Briefcase will break it down.

Christian Brothers Automotive

Location: 23385 W. Yuma Road, Buckeye

Houston-based Christian Brothers Automotive is opening its 12th shop in the Valley, extending its reach to Buckeye.

“We’re thrilled to keep the momentum growing in Arizona with this signed agreement in Buckeye,” said Donnie Carr, president and CEO of Christian Brothers Automotive. “This will be the westernmost Christian Brothers shop in one of the top-growing cities in the U.S. It’s an especially exciting time to bring honest automotive repair to a new location. I am confident that Stacey and Pat will bring extraordinary guest experiences to the Buckeye community, demonstrating the nice difference when it comes to automotive repair.”

Local entrepreneurs Stacey and Pat Jarrett, once customers themselves looking for great automotive care, will take over this shop.

“I am looking forward to connecting with friends and neighbors while fixing cars and driving joy at Christian Brothers Automotive,” Stacey said. 

The company brands itself on its mission in its work on cars: “To glorify God by loving your neighbor as yourself.” Christian Brothers Automotive 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.

David Weekley Homes

Location: Litchfield Park

New home development is in the works by David Weekley Homes in Litchfield Park. The project name is Canyon View, a planned housing community with numerous amenities. 

Homeowners in Canyon Views will have access to pocket parks, basketball courts and playgrounds. Canyon View is also convenient to nearby camping and outdoor recreation, such as the White Tank Mountains, and provides easy access to Route 303. There are a few school options for prospective families in the community, including Canyon View High School.

The builder will offer two series of homes: Sunrise on 70-foot homesites and Paradise on 80-foot homesites. Buyers can select seven one- and two-story floor plans ranging from 2,500 to 3,450 square feet of living space. In the Sunrise Series, homes will offer three to five bedrooms and two to four full baths within 2,245 to 3,149 square feet of living space.

The sale of these homes is expected to start in 2023. For more information, visit davidweekleyhomes.com.

Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers

Barrett Rinzler, founder and CEO of Square One Concepts, the restaurant group behind Cold Beers & Cheeseburgers. “This space is very special, as its original design was for the former Verrado Community Welcome Center. The structure of this space is unique compared to our other locations. We are excited to serve this part of the metro area, especially in this outstanding community.”
