“I am passionate about the Rent to Own industry, and with passion, anything is possible.” This is Mike Lewis' motto which has helped him be successful in the growth of his Premier Rental-Purchase business.

Mike spent twelve years with a rent to own company running more than 50 stores during his tenure. He decided he was ready to become an owner instead of an employee and opened his first Premier Rental-Purchase location in 2004 in Mishawaka, Indiana. Mike's ability to hire and coach his employees enabled him to grow into his second store in 2008. This year Mike opened a 6,000 square foot store in Plymouth, Indiana and recently bought an existing Premier Rental- Purchase location in Sarasota, Florida. He believes that he has been able to continue to grow his business successfully because he has not given up on learning. “I learn about myself as an owner through self-reflection and criticism. I also learn from my employees allowing them to come up with their own ideas. My team is a huge part of my growth,” said Mike.

The support and resources that The Premier Companies make available to their dealers are very beneficial for Mike. “I love having access to Premier Human Resources, Premier Marketing, Premier Purchasing Cooperative (buying group), Premier University and all of the vendors,” said Mike. “These support systems in place are all a significant part of my expansion.”

Training and motivation is a part of everyday life for Mike's employees. He came up with his own core values which his staff believes in and practice each day. They share success stories among the stores and hi-fives can be seen throughout the day as well. The entire staff reminds each other of their motto “Every Play, Every Day!”
