Celebrating 50 Years at Budget Edmonton

2013 will mark a major milestone for Budget Car and Truck Rental of Edmonton as we celebrate our 50th year in operation.

Growing up in Calgary, founder, Lionel Groberman assisted his father in the family furniture store where he worked as a helper on the delivery truck.  After earning a Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia he returned to the family business and worked in mutual funds for a few years. In July of 1963 Lionel opened his first Budget Edmonton location in what is now the Telus Towers.

The early years were not easy and required the dedication, and the steady work ethic he learned on from the family business. He started with a dozen vehicles and one wash bay attendant. Since 1963, Budget Edmonton has grown to have locations in 12 cities across Northern Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Those dozen or so vehicles that Lionel started off with has transformed into a fleet of over 4,000 vehicles in 2013.  We can honestly say we have one of the largest and most diverse fleet of vehicles in Northern Alberta.

And to commemorate 50 years, check out our new logo:
