K & M Rentals: The One Stop Rental Shop

K & M Rentals is a minority owned business that has been in operation since 1993. Mary Brodie, founder of K & M Rentals, realized there was a need for a more specialized equipment rental company in Orlando and Kissimmee to offer a variety of rentals to guests arriving from Overseas and the USA. It was from this idea and a lot of hard work from Mary’s loyal employees that K&M has grown to become one of the top equipment rental companies in Orlando and Kissimmee.

WHAT MY OCHS MEMBERSHIP MEANS TO ME… and WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER JOINING TOO!

My first exposure to the Osceola County Historical Society (OCHS) and resulting enthusiastic desire to join as a member began with a story about growth…

In 2011, a community development plan was being prepared for the Narcoossee Corridor with input from local residents collected via a series of public meetings organized by the Osceola County Planning Department and District 5 Commissioner Fred Hawkins, Jr. As a participant, the topic of local historic preservation came to my attention when information was shared that the historic circa 1886 Narcoossee Schoolhouse was slated to be moved out to the Pioneer Village in Kissimmee.
