Dollar Rent A Car Adds Four New Franchised Locations

Dollar Rent A Car recently added four new franchised locations to its network of U.S. locations. To date, Dollar has 255 locations in the U.S., 105 of which are franchise-owned and operated.

While Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. has a strategy of operating corporately in the larger U.S. markets, the company continues to franchise in the mid-size and smaller markets, according to a spokesman.

Gary Lewis, a Thrifty Car Rental franchisee for almost eight years, recently purchased the Dollar franchise for Idaho Falls, Idaho. The off-airport location will serve customers at Idaho Falls Regional Airport. He is also the franchise owner of Dollar and Thrifty Car Rental in Billings, Mont.

Westover Car Rental LLC recently opened a Dollar location in Buffalo, N.Y., serving Buffalo Airport.

Duran Johnson opened a new Dollar local market location in Sanford, N.C. Johnson owns several enterprises in Lee County, N.C.

In Wickliffe, Ohio, franchisee Richard Entler opened a new local market store. For 11 years, Entler owned an independent car and truck rental company, one of the largest Penske dealers in the Cleveland area. He continues to operate a fleet of rental trucks, and will add car rental to the mix as a Dollar franchisee.
