Mission Statement

We, the staff of Brookshire Car Care, will work hard to provide an honest job, excellent service with affordable pricing to our customers.

I am a vessel through which God’s work is done.

We each want to do good work using our unique gifts and talents. How do I discern what is mine to do? I call upon the indwelling Christ for clarity. I set an intention to be motivated by love, kindness, and generosity–rather than by fear, judgment or obligation. In the silence, I seek to better understand my purpose and listen for the still small voice of wisdom. My guidance reveals ways I can serve authentically. Likewise, I am redirected when something is not mine to do. With a clarity of purpose, motivation, and direction, I carry out good works that bring good results. I am a vessel through which God’s work is done.

Very truly, I tell you, the one who believes in me will also do the works that I do and, in fact, will do greater works than these. –John 14:12


Fred Hermis (owner)
My name is Fred Hermis and my wife is Lisa, we are both native Houstonians. It has been my dream to own my own business and Brookshire has given me the opportunity. I graduated from San Jacinto Junior College in 1985 and was sponsored by Leo Jarnigan Pontiac, a local dealership at that time. I was selected out of 200 candidates by General Motors to enroll in the first Automotive Service Excellence Program.After graduating I pursued my automotive career at Jarnigan Pontiac. In 1986, I was offered the Shop Foreman position at a new dealership Jarnigan Hyundai. Throughout the years I worked for Mitsubishi, Mazda, and various dealers. I opened my first automotive shop, Tilden Car Care, in 1999. I was a successful business owner and market developer for six years.Before I found this opportunity in Brookshire, I worked for five years in the oil and gas industry. I have been blessed all my life by putting God first, family second, and my career third. I really appreciate the beautiful city of Brookshire welcoming my family business and me to serve this growing and expanding community.
