Aristocat Limousine Celebrates its 29th Anniversary
“We are our choices and what we think.” This is one of Sue Jarvis’s favorite quotes, and it rings true through her 29 year old business, Aristocat Limousine. 29 years ago, on October 28, 1987, Sue made the choice to purchase an eight passenger 1982 Cadillac limousine. That choice threw her into the world of chauffeured transportation, an industry she saw an opportunity in with its stricter drinking and driving laws, and lack of options for corporate clients. From that day forward, the business grew and transformed, built on smart choices and a solid business knowledge.
As soon as Sue purchased her first limousine and founded the company, she started marketing it to friends, purchased a yellow pages ad, and networked with hotels and various local vendors. Because of her hustle and dedication, within one year the company was able to add a sedan. Then with a newly developed network, a business degree from Oakland University, and a business-savvy husband coaching her, Sue had the tools to rapidly grow and expand the company. And five years later, Aristocat Limousine had 22 sedans and limousines to offer clients. Then to fuel growth further, Aristocat Transportation acquired the assets of two different companies; Peerless Executive Limousine in 1992 and Exotic Transportation in 1995.Then in 2008, the company also purchased All Class Transportation service.
From its beginning in 1982, to now 2016, the company has steadily grown, fielding the challenges created by a fluctuating economy and a transit workforce to become a leader in the industry. Sue sat on the NLA board for 3 years and the company has won numerous awards, including being a finalist for operator of the year.
The main reasons why Sue has stayed in business all these years is because she loves to take care of her clients, to make sure people are being safely and professionally chauffeured to their destinations, and to be an active member in the community. Therefore, Aristocat plans to stay true to these values, focusing on its clients as well as the local community while the company continues to grow. Sue is spearheading the charge to give back by sitting on the board of directors for a local homeless charity from 2006 to 2009, and continuing to donate to local charities.
From humble beginnings, Aristocat has grown to become one of the most respected and trusted companies in Michigan, serving the needs of corporate, individual and special events markets.
