After his father’s passing in 1992, Glenn Bianchi assumed the helm of the Company as it transitioned into the second generation of family ownership. With a new vision of what the Paramount Swap Meet could be, Glenn Bianchi initiated a major transformation of the operation. Working in cooperation with the City of Paramount, he purchased additional adjoining property and made numerous improvements to the facility. Today, the Paramount Swap Meet has grown to over 46 acres. We have a parking lot of 2100 spaces, over 800 vendor spaces, over 2.5 million buyers a year and we employ over 100 full and part time employees, making the Paramount Swap Meet the largest daily swap meet in California.
In 2009, the preparation for the third generation of the Bianchi family to continue to run the Paramount Swap Meet came to fruition when Glenn Bianchi’s son, Beau Bianchi was made a General Partner. We take great pride in the fact that we are an incubator for small business. We provide the opportunity and the foot traffic for today’s entrepreneur to start a successful business with a very low operating cost. And of course, let’s not forget the bargains that are available to all who shop here.
