Founded in 1957, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has more than 6,500 offices in the United States, Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Germany, and operates more than 800,000 Rental and Fleet Services vehicles worldwide. The company had $8.2 billion in revenue in its 2005 fiscal year. Enterprise is ranked No. 16 on the Forbes “500 Largest Private Companies in America” list.

Enterprise car rental began as a leasing business in the basement of a Midwest car dealership. Enterprise Founder Jack Taylor looked around his small office one day and saw a handful of co-workers fielding phone calls, calculating rates and prepping cars. But he saw something else too. He saw people doing ordinary, everyday things with extraordinary passion and focus. He saw people willing to go well beyond their own jobs to get the whole job done right … people who believed in his vision and made it their own. Thus, the foundation was laid – superior customer service – for what would become the largest car rental company in North America.

Through its neighborhood network, Enterprise has locations within 15 miles of 90 percent of the U.S. population, operates more than 6,500 offices in the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland and Germany, handles tens of millions of transactions every year and purchases millions of dollars worth of vehicles through local dealerships.
