“Take care of your customers and your employees first, and the profits will follow.”
The story of the company dates back to 1957 when Jack Taylor (WWII pilot) upon returning home after the war made a decision to run a business and have a family.
The story began with seven cars and a hunch. Jack started leasing vehicles with the help of seven cars bearing in mind the values that he formed in the U.S. navy. These values were diligent work, teamwork and doing the right thing.
Today Enterprise has a reputation for excellence and value across the globe. Due to high quality services we have built a solid foundation of regular customers and continue to grow, adapt and change as necessary to meet your requirements.
With seven cars and a hunch that customers will embrace the novel concept of hiring automobiles, Jack Taylor founds Executive Leasing Company in St. Louis.
Jack listens to his customers and hears that they need to rent cars while theirs are being repaired. Executive Leasing Co. adds a rental car business division with a fleet of 17 vehicles. The company also starts a Car Sales division.
Jack and team are ready to expand the company beyond St. Louis. With this expansion, Jack renames his growing operation "Enterprise" in honour of the aircraft carrier on which he served.
