Legacies: Bryant's Rent-All


Vernon Bryant started his United Rent-All franchise store in 1953. It was the first equipment rental store in central Kentucky, located across from the University of Kentucky. In the early ‘60s, he decided to opt out of the franchise and began operating as an independent rental store under his own name: Bryant’s Rent-All. In their decades of business, Bryant’s has cemented its reputation as a trusted source in quality rentals.

67 years in business!

The business moved to 875 South Broadway in 1972, and this location became the site of their equipment rental store. They added a 37,000 sq. ft. warehouse at 701 Red Mile Road in 2010 to serve as the party and event rental store. 

Vernon’s eldest son, Terry, joined the business in 1973. When Vernon retired in 1982, he handed the reins to his son. Terry’s son, Scott, joined the business in 1991.

As a third-generation family business in Lexington, Bryant’s understands the needs of their customers. While the main focus of the business is party and event rental, they also have an 

impressive construction, lawn and garden rental inventory. This multi-pronged approach has allowed them to serve a variety of local businesses, nonprofit organizations and families.

Bryant’s is especially proud of their selection of rental tents. They have a variety of sizes, some of which span over 100 feet in length! Their extensive experience in installation makes outdoor events a snap. With lighting, sidewalls and accessories like heaters or fans, they can serve private, corporate or fundraising events all year long. They also offer free estimates to make the process easy.

When hosting an event, finding the perfect rental items can be a struggle. Bryant’s makes it easy by serving as a one-stop shop. They offer dinnerware, flooring, cooking equipment, linens, lighting, accessories, chairs, candelabras, PA systems and so much more.
