The Founding Story

SpotHero’s founders loved driving but hated parking. After too many parking tickets in Wrigleyville, they knew there had to be a better way to park so they started SpotHero.

SpotHero initially offered parking at private parking spots near Wrigley Field. Soon SpotHero was noticed by a major parking garage company who gave them access to their inventory of parking spots. This moved the company in a new direction by allowing SpotHero to help drivers find parking spots at garages on a much larger scale.
