Enterprise Holdings, through the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand, is renewing its strategic partnership with the USO in Guam and expanding its support of the USO to include South Korea.
Enterprise – a longstanding supporter of the military – established a partnership with the USO in Guam last year to support the USO’s mission, which aims to strengthen America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country.
As part of the agreement, Enterprise team members will have the opportunity to volunteer alongside USO staff throughout the year to welcome guests, serve food, provide information and help ensure a warm and inviting atmosphere for visitors.
"We are very grateful and appreciative to Enterprise Rent-A-Car for their commitment to expanding their partnership with the USO to now include Korea in addition to Guam. This expansion speaks volumes about Enterprise's unwavering commitment to the people actively serving in the U.S. military and their families," USO Indo-Pacific Region Vice President Scott Maskery said.
In addition to Enterprise team members volunteering at USO Centers in both Guam and South Korea, Enterprise also will be recognized as a "USO Indo-Pacific Region Mission Partner."
USO Korea offers robust programming to more than 66,000 U.S. service members and their families – especially for those in remote locations and along the Demilitarized Zone. USO Korea runs outreach to 14 locations including three bases on the DMZ and Camp Humphreys, which is one of the largest U.S. Army bases in the world outside of the United States. In Guam, the USO operates in three locations including USO Naval Base Guam at Camp Covington in Santa Rita, USO Andersen at Andersen Air Force Base and USO Tumon Bay.
Enterprise Holdings’ founder Jack Taylor chose the name Enterprise to honor the World War II aircraft carrier on which he served, the USS Enterprise. Taylor applied the lessons he learned in the Navy – including honor, respect and integrity – to create what has become the world’s largest vehicle rental business.
"This partnership honors our founder's legacy and reinforces our commitment to care for our service members and their families, both home and abroad," Enterprise Holdings Assistant Vice President, Global Franchising – Asia Pacific Marco Beltgens said. "The USO helps provide a connection back to their home and their country. We respect and honor those who serve, and we're proud to support this worthwhile cause."
Enterprise has had a presence in Guam since 2016, and now has locations at Andersen Air Force Base and Guam Naval Base. Enterprise launched operations in South Korea for the first time in May of this year to serve the domestic market, U.S. military bases and Incheon Airport, the international gateway to the country situated in the Seoul Metropolitan Area. There are currently new branches in Yongsan, at the Dragon Hill Lodge Hotel branch at the Eighth Army base, and at the Incheon Airport, to make travel easier and more convenient for customers visiting Korea. A new Enterprise location will open at Camp Humphreys in November.
