ANN ARBOR, MI, Oct. 13, 2017 – Park n Party (www.parknparty.com), a sports and entertainment parking reservation and tailgate planning network, has acquired Gainesville, FL-based parking reservation company Yardslot. Park n Party President and CEO Taylor Bond made the announcement.
Yardslot was founded in February 2015 by University of Florida graduates Thomas Dunne and Logan Middleton. The concept launched for the 2016 college football season with the mission to make parking easier for Southeastern Conference (SEC) football fans, while creating a revenue source for homeowners.
“We’re excited that Park n Party will continue Yardslot’s mission. This acquisition will benefit the SEC football community,” said Dunne.
Park n Party’s acquisition of Yardslot further fuels Park n Party’s rapid, nationwide growth, extending the concept beyond the Midwest into the southeastern United States.
“We’re already building on past Yardslot relationships. We’re excited to bring Park n Party reservations and tailgate planning to the SEC Conference,” said Bond.
