CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SpotHero, the nation’s leading parking reservation service, announced today that it has launched in 13 new cities, including Austin, Houston, Indianapolis, Miami, and San Diego, in response to strong driver demand. Whether commuting or traveling for business, drivers in major cities can find convenient, affordable SpotHero parking options near their work, at the airport, close to downtown attractions, and at their favorite sports venues. With more than 3,300 locations in 30 cities across the country, SpotHero makes it easy to reserve parking in advance, empowering drivers so that they can focus on where they’re going, not where to park.
“Drivers that use SpotHero when they travel for business or vacation love the experience and tell us that they want SpotHero in their own cities,” said Mark Lawrence, co-founder and CEO, SpotHero. “We’ve been working really hard to expand nationally to ensure that drivers have exceptional, tech-powered parking experiences no matter where they live.”
"SpotHero made my life so much easier when I lived in Chicago, so I was disappointed when I moved to Miami and had to rely on posted signs and luck to find parking," said Miami resident Talia Pollack. "With SpotHero now in Miami, I'm thrilled to be able to make parking a non-issue again, whether I’m out on the weekend with my kids or heading to a meeting for work."
SpotHero has also had demand from the parking industry to expand their presence across the country. By making parking simpler and more convenient for drivers, SpotHero brings advantages to parking businesses, such as tech-powered inventory management and increased visibility into performance and driver demand.
Since launching in 2011, SpotHero has helped park more than 4.5 million cars and has plans to double in size again this year. SpotHero laid the groundwork for this rapid expansion by making strategic key hires to bolster its product and executive teams, including appointing Trish Lukasik as chief operating officer and Anthony Broad Crawford as chief product officer. In addition, the company doubled its employee headcount, opened offices in Washington D.C., New York City and San Francisco, and recently moved its Chicago headquarters to a bigger location.
