University of Dayton: Flyer Enterprises


A Brief History of Flyer Enterprises

The foundations for Flyer Enterprises were set in 1990 with the opening of Rudy's Fly-Buy which was started by a group of undergraduate students who formed the Students of Dayton Inc.  A second student run business, The Blend, was opened in 2000.  It was because of these separate student run businesses that the need for restructuring was recognized.  It was from this restructuring that Flyer Enterprises was born.  Flyer Enterprises is an entirely student run business organization operating eight businesses across campus.  Today Flyer Enterprises is the sixth largest student run operation in the country. 

Mission: To create a competitive advantage for our employees by providing experiential education through the operation of profitable, ethically-focused businesses that serve the needs of our stakeholders.
