Payless Car Rental was established in 1971 in Spokane, Washington, by Les Netterstrom and his wife, Dusty. By 1982, their small two-location car rental business had grown to almost 100 franchises and one corporate-owned location. In 1983, the 150-location company changed its name to Payless Car Rental System Inc. In 1989, Netterstrom sold the company to a Taiwanese investment group. Eighty percent of the privately held company's franchise units are conversions; 47 percent of the franchisees own multiple locations.
