Auto-Lab Texas Opens its First Location in Spring, Texas


The Houston-based Communitas Auto Group LLC. has opened its first Auto-Lab Complete Car Care Centers location in Spring, Texas. Auto-Lab Gleannloch Farms is the first of three locations to open in the greater Houston, Texas, area this year. The franchise business will operate under the Auto-Lab of Texas label and be responsible for all locations that are opened in the state.

“The Texas market has strong and growing demand for high-level, diagnostic auto repair services,” said Frank Brandenberg, CEO of Auto-Lab, LLC based in Auburn Hills, Michigan, with 29 existing locations. “We are delighted to partner with such an innovative, entrepreneurial group that is led by an impressive team of seasoned professionals.”

The Communitas Auto Group team is primarily led by experienced Houston businessman, Mike Humphrey. Mike Humphrey is joined by John Hamilton, General Manager, and Teak Daniele, Franchise Operations Director, to oversee the development and operations of all Auto-Lab Texas locations.

“There are two things that I look for in new business opportunities. The first is a good concept. But more importantly, I look for strong leaders. With Auto-Lab and Frank Brandenburg, I have found both,” said Humphrey. “With the advancing technology of cars and trucks, Auto-Lab’s specific focus on diagnostics is a point of clear distinction in the auto repair industry. We are excited to bring this concept to Texas.”
