Enterprise going exotic in Cool Springs

Officials with car rental giant Enterprise Holdings say they’re enjoying the benefits of Nashville’s tourism and travel boom. The company’s three brands — Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car — are putting up double-digit growth this year at Nashville International Airport, and plans call for Enterprise to open several more area locations to go with the 40-plus they now run.

One of those will come with a twist: This fall, Enterprise will add the Exotic Car Collection at its offices on Mallory Station in Cool Springs. The operation, which will employ a handful of full- and part-time people, will market high-end brands such as Lamborghini, Bentley, Ferrari and more. It will be just the 23rd Exotic Car Collection location in the country and only the fifth in the South, joining spots in Atlanta, Miami and Naples, Florida.
