ParknParty

 

continued

Perry Sankovich started listing the nine parking spaces in his yard on Belmar, a block west of Main, two years ago. "It's simply easier because I can sell the spots up front and don't have to deal with cash," he says. And at the company's suggestion, he now has two-tier pricing: five higher-price spots on his lawn are easy access, and the customers keep their keys. Four lower-priced spots are tucked away.

Last year, ParknParty expanded to South Bend and is gearing up to add Madison. And Bond says that the National Hockey League was so pleased with ParknParty's work for this year's Winter Classic that they're talking about expanding to Washington, D.C., for next January's game.    (end of article)
