Budget was started in Los Angeles back in 1958, it’s founder was Morris Mirkin who put an initial investment of $10,000 into the company. He chose the name because he wanted it to be clear that his company was the choice for the budget-conscious renter and that they would not compromise on providing the lowest prices. The company was bought and sold many times over the next few years before going public in 1987. In the mid-2000s the parent company that owned both Budget and Avis separated into 4 smaller companies with one being Avis Budget Group.

In 1956 they debuted the ‘We Try Harder’ marketing campaign, which is to this day recognized as one of the most clever and effective marketing campaigns of all time. It paid off and an 1965 the company was sold again for 51 million dollars. It would be sold again in 1977 for $174 million.
