Parking Panda launched its parking reservation services in Houston and Dallas this week, according to a press release from the company.
As Technically Baltimore has reported, Parking Panda uses both a mobile and web interface to allows users to reserve public parking spots (through partnerships with public garages in different cities, as well as the Baltimore Grand Prix) and unused space in other homeowners’ driveways.
Nick Miller, cofounder of Parking Panda, said that while the startup is “rolling out in a bunch of new cities,” its 15-person, full-time team is working from New York City and Baltimore.
The startup just relocated to a new Baltimore city office on the 1100 block of Marshall Street in Federal Hill. Parking Panda had occupied, with Red Owl Analytics, part of a second-floor office at 1111 Light Street. Its new, larger office, still undergoing some new construction, is the former home of 3D animation and gaming firm Bully Entertainment (now located on Fort Avenue in Federal Hill).
An expanded full-time team and a new office are capping what’s been a fairly big growth year for the company, which was founded in April 2011 during Baltimore’s first-ever Startup Weekend. In March, Parking Panda raised nearly $5 million in equity.-30-
