LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- CurbStand, the iOS app that allows users to seamlessly locate, pay and tip for valet parking from their mobile devices, today announced the unveiling of its #soLAvalet campaign.
Los Angeles is a one-of-a-kind global city. As the entertainment capital of the world, the metropolis is home to renowned and thriving art, sports, music, theater, shopping, restaurant, sight-seeing and outdoor scenes. While those scenes are unmatched, L.A.'s culture is occasionally viewed as over-the-top. CurbStand is hijacking the frequently heard – "That's so L.A.!" – saying and transforming it into a tongue-in-cheek slogan for fun and unique collaborations with local businesses and organizations in and around the City of Angels.
"CurbStand's #soLAvalet campaign speaks to the many 'only in L.A.' experiences that everyone from locals to commuters to tourists encounter. We're embracing the exceptional appeal of our city and applying it to our contemporary valet parking service," said Serge Gojkovich, CEO, CurbStand. "Fatburger is the perfect collaborative partner to kick off the campaign and we will announce a host of other uniquely L.A. experiences in the near future."
To kick off its #soLAvalet campaign, CurbStand is teaming up with Fatburger, the nation's "Last Great Hamburger Stand" with more than 150 locations in 32 countries around the world. In true L.A. style, the two companies are introducing the convenience of CurbStand valet parking for a limited time to customers at Fatburger's West Hollywood and Downtown L.A. locations with plans for additional locations in the future:
- Fatburger West Hollywood: 7450 Santa Monica Boulevard and North Gardner Street
- Fatburger Downtown L.A.: 888 South Figueroa Street
"CurbStand is offering a distinctively L.A. concierge-style valet experience for the West Hollywood and Downtown L.A. communities," said Arya Alexander, CurbStand's Head of Business Development.
"We're making it all the more convenient to find and pay for parking, and savor Fatburger's signature burger -- the ultimate in West Coast customer service," added Thayer Wiederhorn, Vice President of Marketing, Fatburger.
CurbStand is pioneering a new era for valet parking, combining innovative smartphone technology, real-time communication of valet parking availability and cashless payment. In three simple steps, Fatburger fanatics can be one step closer to all-beef made-to-order goodness. Just fire up CurbStand's free iOS app and…:
- Locate: Use CurbStand's geo locator map to select the nearest valet;
- Pay: View the valet rate for the selected parking location and confirm the payment type and amount – including an option to tip;
