Cab Company Celebrating 2 Years in Minot

Posted: Updated:

Central Cab Company in Minot is celebrating its two year anniversary this week. We caught up with the manager to learn how the company has expanded to meet the needs of a growing community.

In February of 2012, Central Cab Company started with just five employees in a nine by nine office attached to a small shop in downtown Minot.

Central Cab Company Manager Chris Braun says, "I mean there is always a sense of concern as far as starting a new business: Are you going to make it or not?"

In just 18 months, Central Cab quickly grew, building up cliental and getting the word out about their services.

In the beginning, Central Cab Company started with just five vehicles.  But, in the two years, they've expanded their fleet to 25 vehicles to help meet the demand of customers.

And, in April of 2013, they moved into a newly renovated office and shop with more than 6,500 square feet providing more space to grow and expand the company.

"I'm feeling overwhelmed some days that's part of the business that's what we enjoy. I feel that we can grow tenfold down. We have our feet stable. People know that we're here."

But, it hasn't always been easy. Like many business in the Magic City, Central Cab Company has struggled to retain workers. In just the first year alone, they went through 98 employees.

"I think if we get our name out there as far as being a good company to work for those people will tend to stick around a little bit better," says Braun.

For cab driver Brenda Lovgren, she loves what she does.  She's been working for Central Cab Company since 2012.

"We got quite a few regulars and we build up a rapport with them and get to know them a little bit," says Lovgren.

As Central Cab Company celebrates its 2nd Anniversary, they look forward to serving the community for years to come.

Braun says, "The way the city is growing is only going to lead to more people needing more rides in town."

"Oh, I'm excited and I expect many more years," says Lovgren. "I think we're the best cab company in town."

 To get cab, you don't even have to call. You can now do it all online. For more information visit centralcabcompany.com.
