In 1989 King started his own business, Kings Car Hire and within a short time he merged this business with Protea Car Hire, owned by his current business partner Stan Medalie. In 1997 the opportunity to buy in to Avis Van Rental Franchise system became available and in June 1998, Bruce and Stan together started the second franchise in the Avis Van Rental stable, Avis Van Rental Gauteng. During this period Van rental was not available in South Africa, due to the high theft risk and uncertainty in the country.
