Enterprise Holdings on Friday said it bought $450,000 in gift cards for its employees for use at several St. Louis-area restaurants. Among them is Antonio Ellis' Five Aces Bar-B-Que, in the Shaw neighborhood.

ST. LOUIS — Enterprise Holdings on Friday distributed $100 gift cards to each of its 4,500 St. Louis-area employees for use at 13 restaurants spread across the metro area.

The privately held Clayton-based rental car giant said it invested a total $8 million directed at more than 9,500 neighborhoods where its employees live and work nationwide, including places such as Detroit and South Florida.

CEO Chrissy Taylor, in a post on LinkedIn, said the initiative was the company's way of recognizing Employee Appreciation Day while directing support to small businesses hit hard by the pandemic.

"Enterprise began as a small business, and we owe much of our success to families and fellow businesses in the thousands of cities and towns we serve," said Taylor, who took over as CEO last year. "We look forward to paying it forward to others hard hit by the pandemic because when we invest in them, we live out one of our company’s guiding principles: Strengthen our communities, one neighborhood at a time."

The company said it distributed the $100 gift cards to both part- and full-time employees Friday. In St. Louis, the cards were good for meals from these local restaurants:
