Long before it became our mission to provide a clean, efficient and friendly place to park, Jim Huger was working for parking management companies in Washington, D.C. and California. Yet, it wasn’t until the early 90s that Jim returned to New Orleans to lead business development at the family parking business, Dixie Parking. He eventually purchased the company, and by the late 90s, had turned it into the largest parking operator in the city. In 1998, a large national company, purchased Dixie Parking as part of a nationwide industry consolidation.
In 2005 Jim was presented with an opportunity to re-enter the parking business, and this time the goal was to build not the biggest, but the best management company. Premium Parking was created using Jim’s decade of experience in the industry. Today, with a strong focus on developing a professional corporate culture and using proven operating systems, we have grown to over 90 locations and currently employ more than 500 associates. With recent moves into new markets throughout the United States Premium is poised to bring its operational excellence to 100’s of facilities in the coming years.
