Christian Brothers Automotive to open in Goodyear 

Ranked No. 1 by J.D. Power in Customer Satisfaction among Aftermarket Full-Service Maintenance and Repair Providers twice, Christian Brothers Automotive signed an agreement that will bring a new location to Goodyear.

Owned by local entrepreneur Mike Hassenger, the new shop carries the mantra “Love your neighbor as yourself.” 

The Christian Brothers Automotive shop in Goodyear is anticipated to open in November and will be Hassenger’s second Christian Brothers Automotive location, adding to his flagship store in Litchfield Park. 

“We are incredibly excited to open our second Christian Brothers Automotive shop in Goodyear,” Hassenger said. “Through our Litchfield Park location, we have been able to do a great amount of work supporting special needs families in the community, and we are eager to extend our support to even more families in West Valley. We are proud to continue serving our neighbors as a locally owned business where guests can find honest, trustworthy and reputable services for all types of automotive care and that also gives back to the community.” 

Prior to opening his Christian Brothers Automotive locations, Hassenger served in the U.S. Navy and as a business professional with more than 15 years of supply chain experience.

At the foundation of our services is the understanding of how to build confidence with our consumers and earn their trust in us as aftermarket automotive professionals. With this signed agreement, we’re focused on providing a better experience for more guests in Goodyear,” said Donnie Carr, president of Christian Brothers Automotive. “I’m confident that Mike’s passion for providing quality service makes them the perfect fit for the Goodyear area.”
