Jack Taylor founded the company in 1957, and his family still owns the business to this day.
In a tiny lower-level office in a St. Louis Cadillac dealership, he started out with a fleet of seven cars,
one employee and a commitment to provide a uniquely personal brand of customer service.
Jack developed a simple but enduring business philosophy that still guides our efforts as the largest rental car operation in the world:
"Take care of your customers and your employees first, and the profits will follow."
As his company grew, the Navy veteran expanded operations into new markets and named the company after an aircraft carrier on which he had served,
the World War II USS Enterprise.
Enterprise Holdings offers two great rental brands to give astute business travelers everything they need. National Car Rental has long been favored by frequent renters at airports for speed and vehicle choice. Enterprise Rent-A-Car is the first choice for business travelers who need to rent near their home or office while providing their company savings.
With these two brands, Enterprise Holdings gives businesses the service, value and convenience they expect from the brands they've come to know and trust – and the most comprehensive business rental solution in the marketplace.
