Enterprise Rent-A-Car Opening Seventh Branch Office in Alexandria, Va.

ALEXANDRIA (April 25, 2018) Enterprise Rent-A-Car is expanding its neighborhood network across Northern Virginia with its newest location opening today in Alexandria. The independent city is already home to six other Enterprise Rent-A-Car branch offices, one of which also offers premium luxury vehicles through the Exotic Car Collection by Enterprise.

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand is owned and operated by Enterprise Holdings Inc., the world’s largest car rental company. Enterprise Holdings’ portfolio of brands – which also includes National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car – handles more than 70 million transactions worldwide and covers more than 9,900 fully staffed neighborhood and airport offices in more than 90 countries and territories.

“Our new office in Alexandria reinforces our commitment to meet the growing demand for car rental and mobility options, both locally and on a global scale,” said Michelle Bosch, Vice President and General Manager for Enterprise Holdings in Washington D.C.

Sustainable Construction and Mobility

Extensive renovations of the 4,570-square-foot Enterprise facility – located at 5060 Edsall Road – transformed a vacated restaurant into a state-of-the-art branch office. The new sustainable features, which include a high-efficiency heating and cooling system, lighting sensors, thermal windows, and a recycling system for wash bays, support Enterprise’s energy and construction initiatives as well as the goals of Eco-City Alexandria – the city’s strategic effort to achieve sustainability.

In addition to supporting the City of Alexandria’s sustainable building goals, Enterprise offers local residents a variety of sustainable transportation options. By providing customers convenient and affordable access to late-model, fuel-efficient vehicles, local car rental reduces the number of vehicles on the road, and in some cases, eliminates the need for personal ownership – making it one of the most effective and sustainable mobility options today.

Furthermore, Enterprise Rideshare, a service of Enterprise Rent-A-Car, is an alternative commuting solution that has become one of the largest vanpool operations in the nation and has been going strong in Alexandria for the last eight years. The program started with only 10 vans in the area and now has nearly 450 in the D.C. market. Every business day, Enterprise Rideshare takes more than 100,000 individual cars off the road, eliminating more than 2.4 billion commuter miles driven each year and eradicating the need for 100,000 parking spaces. Additionally, almost 2 billion pounds of carbon emissions are reduced through the Enterprise commuting program.

Community Commitment

The new Alexandria office will be run by eight employees, including a branch manager, assistant manager and management trainees, who all participated in the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Management Training Program. The renowned program not only teaches college-educated men and women how to run a business and provide excellent customer service, but also how to empower teams. Other hallmarks of the program include extensive training in a wide range of business skills, including profit and loss management, business-to-business marketing and sales, and logistics.

“Enterprise is proud to support the Alexandria business community, and it is an honor to contribute to the economic vitality and strength of the region,” Bosch added. “As a family-owned company, the values we live by every day are the driving force behind our commitment to be a strategic business leader on a global scale as well as in each community where we serve.”

Enterprise Holdings also is committed to promoting long-term community growth and prosperity. Enterprise, National and Alamo employees in the Washington D.C. metro area generate hundreds of thousands of dollars for the United Way and volunteer countless hours each year. Local employees work to strengthen their communities, one neighborhood at a time, by supporting organizations like the Washington Urban League and the Capital Food Bank.
