St. Pete-based Valet Company Sees Growth on the Horizon

ST. PETERSBURG, FL – (May 2, 2017) – With no sign of future development in St. Petersburg waning, T. Bullitt McCoun IV, Principal of Select Valet, LLC continues to see opportunities for growth across many sectors for the valet parking service business. 

Select Valet was founded in June 2015 after being approached by Souzou, a high-end Asian fusion restaurant in St. Pete, looking for prompt and a dependable valet service.  With one account in the books, McCoun then began seeking out new opportunities across the hospitality and medical services sectors and has grown his business by 40% in less than two years.

McCoun believes the power of the “Keep St. Pete Local” message resonates across all businesses in this City, “We strongly embrace "keeping it local" with not only our clients but our vendors in the St. Petersburg community.  Before Select, there wasn’t a locally owned and operated St. Pete Valet company with the same level of offering we now provide - we know our clients value that. “ 

Select’s growth areas are in outpatient health care facilities along with medical office buildings, while also seeking opportunities in, residential high-rise development, Class-A office buildings and mixed-use projects.  The company is also creating value beyond just parking cars, such as offering surface lot management and traffic support. For example, Select now helps facilitate traffic circulation at Chick Fil-A during certain peak lunch periods.

“We may not be parking owners cars for dry cleaners like in L.A. but, there is still plenty of new capacity and need for our services as the City continues to grow and urbanize,” said McCoun. 

Select Valet also continues to support local non-profits events including work with Great Explorations Children's Museum, Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital Foundation, R' Club, Junior League, Tampa Bay Watch, Youth Partner in Haiti, Pollywogs and Canterbury School.  Of these events, McCoun said, “This is about giving back along with building lasting mutually beneficial relationships with the real ‘difference-makers’ in the community.”

Select Valet is lead by life-long St. Petersburg resident T. Bullitt McCoun IV and Alfred Weiss who is Select’s Director of Operations
McCoun spent 10 years in commercial finance and sales in the Tampa Bay area before founding Select nearly two years ago.

Weiss who oversees Operations, began his valet career at the Renaissance Vinoy in 2007.  He has also led valet operations for other local properties such Marriot Courtyard, The St. Petersburg Pier, The Museum of Fine Arts, The Sundial, All Children’s Hospital and Manatee Memorial Hospital.
