Brian and Stacie Bufkin will open Christian Brothers Automotive’s newest area franchise, at 6150 FM 1463 in Fulshear, on Dec. 27, 2016. The automotive chain, which began in Houston in 1982, now has 155 locations in 22 states.


Brian Bufkin retires as a sergeant next week after 25 years with the Houston Police Department. After a Saturday of rest, Christmas that Sunday and a Monday observance of the holiday, it’s back to work.

Bufkin and his wife, Stacie, on Dec. 27 will launch the Houston area’s newest franchise of Christian Brothers Automotive at 6150 FM 1463 in Fulshear.

Brian Bufkin said the franchise has been a three-year journey of prayer and aligned opportunities. The Bufkins were considering moving out of state to help a friend establish a church when the opportunity arose for a local Christian Brothers franchise and a chance to stay in their hometown.

“I was ready for a little bit of change and I was ready for a challenge,” said Brian Bufkin, 49. “Fulshear’s growing so fast, I just want to provide them with a good service.”
