A Brief History

When you consider that Enterprise Rent-a-Car started out in a side office next to a car dealership in St. Louis in 1957 and just 60 years later it now operates more than 1.7 million vehicles across 8,000 branches worldwide, you can certainly see that it has been one hell of a joy ride. Jack Crawford Taylor was the man that co-founded Executive Leasing as the company was called then and it initially cost $5 a day for one of the seven cars in the fleet with an extra 5 cents charged per mile driven.

Like many successful businesses, Enterprise Rent-a-Car was set up right at the perfect time and it did not take long to flourish. Air travel was now something that was affordable to many and this meant that people would need to rent cars in other parts of America and eventually the world. Jack Taylor would eventually pass away at the grand age of 94 worth a staggering $5.2 billion.
