The idea for Airport Valet parking at Bradley International Airport originated at a small mom and pop pizza shop owned by Guy’s father, Domenico. Shortly after Domenico opened Piccolo’s Pizzaria in 1968, he noticed that cars were parking on the soft shoulder on the highway and people were walking to the airport because there wasn’t enough parking at the airport. So in 1971, Domenico and Guy’s brother, Frank, came up with the idea to start parking cars next to the Pizzeria. Domenico purchased a 1971 Volkswagen bus to bring people back and forth to the airport, instructed Guy to hand-clear a field with a machete, and Piccolo’s Air Parking was born. When Domenico passed away in 1975, Guy took over the business. Thus began Guy Piccolo's multi-dimensional entry and highly successful career in the world of valet parking.
After running Piccolo’s Air Parking for many years, in 1997 Guy purchased Executive Valet Parking. With his hands-on knowledge of how to properly run a first-rate valet parking service, its popularity has been such that in 2011, across the street from the little old farmhouse the business started in, Guy built a brand new, state of the art home for Executive Valet Parking. Executive Valet is ahead of the curve in technology, utilizing a system that assists in vehicle organization and customer recognition to ensure that customer expectations are exceeded. Many people think it is one of the best valet parking facilities in the country. In 2009, he opened the first off-airport valet parking service in Ft. Myers, FL. It was run in the same tradition as the one in Connecticut, and is heavily used by Southwest International Regional Airport customers.
In late 2020 due to circumstances arising from COVID-19 the lease was lost on the Executive Valet Ft Myers lot. The good news is though that the same team behind the success of Executive Valet moved right down the street and have opened a brand new modern lot with the same great service and value.
Guy's philosophy is simple: "To provide great service & fair prices." This attitude has been the backbone of the business since its inception. Since 1975, Guy's valet parking companies have grown to be the most highly regarded facilities to park at when flying out of Bradley or Ft. Myers.
