The Dollar Thrifty Automotive group has announced plans to open nine new corporate locations across the U.S. this summer, including a new office in South Maui.

The company said it plans to open a Dollar Rent A Car office at the Maui Coast Hotel in Kihei this month, along with other locations in New York, Florida and Georgia later this summer.

“We are pleased to expand our brands’ presence with these prime tourist destinations,” Scott Thompson, Dollar Thrifty Automotive president and CEO, said in a statement. “We are currently targeting 1 to 2 percent annual revenue growth from new location openings. These locations will provide incremental revenue growth in addition to the growth expected from an improving North American travel market.”
