TAMPA, Fla., June 13M, 2017 — Valet Waste, creator and pioneer of the doorstep collection and recycling amenity for multifamily communities since 1995, is now Valet Living. As it approaches one million apartment homes serviced across more than 35 states, Valet Living will continue to set the standard for residential living by challenging traditional practices and thinking outside the apartment box.
With this rebrand, Valet Living will be expanding well-beyond doorstep collection to deliver on its vision as the only nationally-recognized full-service amenities provider to the multifamily industry, enhancing life for both residents and property managers. Valet Living will be the only company in the multifamily industry to combine doorstep collection with both sustainability-related and premium home-related services.
“What excites me the most about rebranding and rebuilding to Valet Living is creating a delightful resident experience that is currently not offered by any amenity provider in the United States,” said Valet Living President and Chief Executive Officer, Shawn Handrahan. “We want to truly transform and create an industry where we can differentiate a resident by property type and want all residents to want to be Valet Living residents.”
“This rebrand is more than just a name change for Valet Living,” said Chief Marketing Officer, Patti Girardi. “Valet Waste’s pioneering edge and proven execution established the brand as the tried and tested resource that supports communities and improves property values through its doorstep collection service. Valet Living will build on that trust to set the standard for residential living. As it adds both resident-facing amenities and value-added services for its property management partners, Valet Living will continue to evolve processes, redefine language and set benchmarks that are universally recognized and used across the multifamily housing industry.”
