Jarvis first entered the chauffeured ground transportation industry in October 1987 when she purchased an eight-passenger 1982 Cadillac limousine, and immediately started marketing her nascent business by purchasing a Yellow Pages ad, networking with hotels and local vendors, and pitching her service to friends. Because of her hustle and dedication, within one year the company was able to add a sedan to her fleet. In just five years, with help from a strong network, a business degree from Oakland University, and a “business-savvy husband,” Jarvis quickly expanded to a 22-vehicle operation. Later, Aristocat acquired the assets of two companies, Peerless Executive Limousine in 1992 and Exotic Transportation in 1995, and then a third, All Class Transportation in 2008.
In addition to running an active and expanding company, Jarvis has been active in industry associations, including sitting on the NLA board for 3 years. She and Aristocat have also received several industry awards, and she was a finalist for operator of the year.
Jarvis attributed Aristrocat’s success to her love of taking care of her clients, ensuring people are being safely and professionally chauffeured to their destinations, and being an active member in the community. In the future, Jarvis plans to continue to stay the company’s core values, and focus on their clients as well as the local community.
