$100,000 car rental company to open in South Florida
A car rental firm is planning to open a store in the Miami area and hopes to serve people from all walks of life.
Car Rental is expected to open its first location in South Miami Beach this summer, said spokeswoman Emily Hirsch.
It plans to open three additional stores in Florida and the South and New York City over the next year, Hirsch said.
“Our focus will be on the communities of Miami Beach and South Miami,” she said.
She said the company hopes to open the first of its stores in June.
Hirsch wouldn’t give any details about the store’s location, saying it would be “a really nice place to rent.”
The company, founded in 2006, has locations in Miami Beach, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Key Biscayne and West Palm Canyon.
The company’s website describes its philosophy: “We believe that if we are truly interested in serving our community, we need to be willing to make our living.
And if that means working from home, we want to do it.
We believe that our passion and commitment to excellence in service to our customers is what makes us the leader in our industry.”
A spokeswoman for the company declined to comment.
The firm’s first location, in Fort Lauderdale in 2011, sold out quickly, Hirsch said.
The store will have three floors, with a bar area, a patio area and an outdoor seating area.
“We are looking forward to having our new store in South Beach,” Hirsch added.
The Miami Herald reported in April that Car Rotation had plans to expand to the Miami-Dade area.
The South Florida-based company has more than 2,300 stores nationwide, and plans to add to that in Miami in the coming months.
The newspaper reported that the company plans to hire about 10 people for its new Miami store.
The Herald reported that some of the company’s workers have been employed by Car Rlease in Florida.
It is unclear how much the company is paying for the new Miami location.
The news service did not identify the company or its employees.
CarRental operates more than 1,600 car rental companies across the U.S., including some in the South.
In March, the company announced that it would close a Miami location, after being unable to find enough rental homes in the area.
