More than six decades ago, Scott Jones’ father founded Ace Parking with a simple goal in mind. He wanted to provide San Diego with an efficient parking solution and excellent customer service. His son, Scott Jones, was raised in the industry and learned all about parking management, customer service, and helping the community from an early age. He was taught to follow the company’s trademarked motto of “Every Thank You Earned,” and through his years of management, he never forgot it.
Helping Ace Parking Grow
Before and after Scott Jones took over management of Ace Parking from his father, he had the goal of seeing his father’s company flourish and flourished it has. The company blossomed from a one-man office into a company that extends service to over 250,000 customers daily in over 450 different facilities across the United States.
He helped Ace Parking become a behemoth in the parking management industry that employs a close-knit extended family of more than 4,500 employees who earn approximately $60 million every year. Scott Jones helped Ace Parking evolve into one of the nation’s leading parking management companies with an annual income of about $370 million.
When Scott Jones took over the management of his father’s company, he realized that the company could increase its customer and client base if it improved on existing services and diversified to include new services.
He helped Ace Parking to create new markets by offering valet services to businesses and hotels, parking enforcement services to existing structures and lots, as well as offering amazing free consultancies to prospective clients. He is also dedicated to his home city of San Diego, made a deal with the municipal government, and gained the contract to operate the historic Balboa Park Tram System, which has become a San Diegoan landmark.
Scott Jones began the process to make Ace Parking one of the most profitable and efficient parking management companies in the country. His legacy continues with his son, Keith.
