Advantage Announces First Franchise Opening

Advantage Rent A Car recently announced that Swade North America LLC has purchased Advantage’s first car rental franchise location, which is located in the suburban Memphis, Tenn., market.

The Memphis car rental location opened June 2, 2008, in the popular Wolfchase area at 7887 U.S. Hwy. 64 (Stage Road).

The franchise license allows for Swade North America to expand future operations to the Huntsville International Airport, as well as the international airports in Memphis and Birmingham, Ala.

Swade North America President Kelly Wade said she is excited about the new Memphis location as it is an ideal area to serve the local market, including Bartlett and Cordova. The Swade ownership group also includes vice president Trey Salatto and John and Kathy Wade.
