About Us


  What began as a two (2)-person company almost 70 years ago, with its first client, the famous Lawry's the Prime Rib in Beverly Hills, has grown to encompass several states and hundreds of locations. Herbert Citrin founded the company in 1946 when he was fresh out of the Navy and looking for a job. Having worked for his father in a small parking concession prior to joining the Navy, he used his knowledge to create Valet Parking Service, one of the most well-known parking companies in the area.

We are proud to say that Lawry's is still one of our finest locations. Through the years, Valet Parking Service has pioneered advances in computerized revenue control systems and safety measures that are emulated throughout the industry. However, these are only part of the firm's success; the most important ingredient is the people, many of whom have been with the company for over twenty-five (25) years.Our formula for success is based on one underlying principle:

We recognize that the parking experience forms the first and last impression your customers have with your establishment.

knowing the names of their grandchildren, now that is SERVICE".
