Limo service to stretch out in new space

A fleet of stretch limousines and passenger vans can take up a lot of room.

Just ask Maurice Driscoll. Driscoll, the founder and owner of Rochester's almost 25-year-old Gold Crown Limousine service, has completely filled two different locations with about 12 to 15 vehicles.

As it became apparent that more room would soon be needed, he decided against looking for yet another place to park his limos.

Instead he chose to build a new 8,500 square-foot complex in northwest Rochester at U.S. 52 and 65th Street.

The project at 6155 Rome Circle has been under construction for a while. He hopes to have it open and ready for use in July.

While Gold Crown does its share of proms, weddings and other special occasions, trips to Rochester International Airport as well as the Minneapolis-St.Paul airport are what occupy the majority of his 12 drivers' time.

Looking down the road, Driscoll feels pretty good about the future and his decision to build. He says thousands of baby boomers are turning 65 every day.

"And that means they'll need health care," he says. "And that means they'll come to Rochester."

That's awesome that have a bunch of new space now! I've only been in a limo a few times before, but it's been tons of fun every time! With all the new space at this limousine service company, maybe I'll be able to get a better rate than normal!

I've used Gold Crown a couple times and they were great. By far a better deal than the other places I called. Friendly, professional drivers and an overall wonderful experience! Congrats on the new facility.

There are so many limousine companies out there to compete against, it is a smart move to grow and buy more limos. Insightful move to grow based on the baby boomers moving to your area. Being so close to St. Paul Minnesota, means you will be able to serve clients that need airport shuttles too. Best wishes! :)
