Grand Rental Station named April Business of the Month

The Logan County Chamber of Commerce has named Grand Rental Station as their Business of the Month for April.

Logan County native the late Roger Watson opened Taylor Rental in 1971 and began renting tools and equipment to local contractors and do-it-yourselfers.

In the mid 1980s, Roger felt that the Taylor Rental Franchise as a whole was declining. His research uncovered the Grand Rental Franchise which would later purchase the Taylor Rental Franchise.

Watson again saw an unmet need within Logan County and expanded his rental business to meet that need, including a wide array of party rentals for weddings, corporate events, and private parties.

In 1982, Grand Rental Station expanded again, opening a new store on Route 68 in Urbana.

In the early 1990s, Roger’s son Todd (pictured) joined the business. They were responsible for the startup of Mad River Farm Market located outside of West Liberty.

Roger’s passing in 2007 saw the baton handed from father to son. In 2015, Todd’s son Chase joined the business.

Today, Grand Rental Station’s staff consists of Todd Watson, President; Chase Watson, Party Warehouse Manager; Eric Krebehenne, Bellefontaine Equipment Store Manager; Joe Small, Head Mechanic; Rhonda Wilson, Assistant Manager; Dawn Harr, Party & Event Specialist; and Tyler Ford, Urbana Equipment Store Manager. The business also hires up to 20 seasonal event crew members each year.
