FanSpotz App Brings Easier Event Parking to DFW Metroplex

Edited 19/06/19

DALLAS and FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., June 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — DFW drivers will soon have a new, easier way to park near the metroplex’s hottest events and areas thanks to startup FanSpotz, LLC ( expanding to Texas. FanSpotz, a peer-to-peer mobile parking app that began in Arkansas, is introducing its crowd-sourcing solution to Dallas and surrounding areas just in time for summer concerts, Fourth of July events, rodeos and festivals.

FanSpotz connects “fans,” concert and eventgoers looking for parking, with “hosts,” property owners with spots to rent. It’s been billed as the “Airbnb of parking.”

  1. Owners list their available parking spots and set their price.
  2. Fans browse availability, including price, and reserve a spot that suits their location needs and budget.
  3. The app uses their device’s default map to direct them to the spot.

Secure payments are handled within the app, eliminating the need to have or handle cash. Payment is encrypted through Stripe, an industry-leading online transaction service.

Parking places can be promoted, and spots can be reserved, up to weeks in advance.

“We’re excited to make FanSpotz available to DFW eventgoers,” said Shauna Bowen, co-founder and chief executive officer. “We know the most stressful part of attending any major event is trying to find a parking spot that is convenient and affordable.”

According to Bowen, FanSpotz plans city-by-city rollouts to build solid bases of hosts and fans.

The startup offers a dual value proposition:

  • FanSpotz helps people easily find parking close to events at a price that fits their budget.
  • FanSpotz helps property owners near event venues–whether residential or commercial –easily rent their driveway, yard or lot to earn extra money.

“Growing up in Dallas, I’ve experienced the difficulty of finding parking near concerts, festivals and sporting events,” said Steven Zapata, co-founder and chief customer officer. “FanSpotz makes event parking hassle-free. We also make it easy to join the sharing economy and capitalize on upcoming events.

“We’re immediately seeking property owners to become hosts. List a price for your spot and when it’s reserved, the full amount will be credited to your bank account. To get started, download the FanSpotz app, choose “host,” list your spots and start earning.”

The FanSpotz app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play.

FanSpotz has solved capacity issues and parking surges since its pilot during the 2017-18 Razorback football season. It quickly expanded from sporting events to serve concerts, festivals and a wide variety of events. The startup is comprised of five Fortune 1 retail veterans with senior-level experience in technology, operations, marketing, strategy and communications. FanSpotz offers investment opportunities as it continues its national rollout to locations with everyday parking concerns or demand created by events.
