Kevin Head noticed a need for a good limousine service in the area because in his opinion others in the area did not have adequate equipment to fit the need locally and he said he decided to open his own business, Premier Limo, two years ago.
What separates the business apart from other limo businesses is its customer service, according to Head.
"Our chauffers are where it is at. These guys are very well trained. They see things before the client does, with cleaning up in the back, helping the bride and groom into the vehicles and out of the cars and taking care of the client on their trip. They make everything look great. You don't touch or lift a finger for anything in our cars," Head said.
Kevin Head noticed a lack of quality limousine service and decided to open Premier Limo two years ago. Since then, the business expanded the number of its vehicles and its location.
Despite Premier Limo's quality vehicles and top notch service, it is one of the most affordable options in the area.
Selection of vehicles has been a priority of the business since it opened its doors.
"We decided to open up shop with new model equipment, a diversified fleet which will allow us to give the public what they want - the Hummers, the big passenger vehicles - people are really looking for those," Head said.
Although the business opened in the height of the economy's downturn, the wayward economy had no effect on Head's new business venture.
"People are still spending money on weddings and nights on the town and getting out and enjoying themselves. We started with one car, our eight passenger limousine, and worked out my own personal garage when we started," Head said.
However, demand forced Head to expand the vehicles and location.
"We started receiving calls for corporate travel and an airport shuttle and we went ahead and purchased the town car. Then, we started receiving more and more calls for larger wedding parties and larger groups of people, so we ended up getting the Hummer. Obviously, we kept getting more and more, so we purchased the bus," Head said.
Despite, its top notch service, Head said the prices are one of the lowest around.
"We have kept our prices very affordable for our clients. That, I really think, has made a success through some of the recession that we have had. Especially, when you can load up 16 or 20 people in some of those larger cars, for a wine tour, airport shuttle or a night on the town, it really becomes economical for the client," Head said.
The limos are used for are proms, weddings, birthday parties, retirement parties, airport travel, corporate travel, wine tours, anniversary parties and a night on the town, according to Head.
With all of his success, Head looks forward to expanding the business even more.
"In five years, I see us as the market leader, which we are. We are the recognized leader he in the valley and the surrounding areas. But, I would like to expand us out into more counties. I want to expand this business with more vehicles and more employees," Head said.
