Franchise History

Founded in 1986, Rent-A-Center has grown to become the largest operator and franchisor of rent-to-own stores in the United States today. Growth came over the first 20 years from acquisition of several small operators and regional chains. Today, as a leader in the rent-to-own space, RAC continues to offer cash constrained and credit challenged customers, brand-name, quality products in furniture, appliances, consumer electronics, computers and cellular telephones at affordable prices and flexible terms.
