In 2001, Jovie began as College Nannies + Sitters. Ever since, we’ve helped countless families to grow stronger by providing valuable nannying and babysitting services for kids of all ages. By franchising our brand, we’ve been able to expand through 37states, with more on the way, and we’ve already become a valuable part of communities across the U.S. Because our services are in high demand among families, there’s a good chance that your community would also benefit if you brought your own Jovie franchise to town.
How We Got Started
Jovie, originally College Nannies + Sitters, was founded in 2001 by Joe Keeley, whose experiences as a “manny” showed him that he was passionate about working with kids and valued the opportunity to strengthen families. Based on his own experience, he worked to simplify and improve the process of getting a nanny or sitter.
Jovie franchisees have the tools to carefully vet each of their employees, providing parents with peace of mind that their child is in good hands. We help our franchisees identify employees who love working with children and who have a variety of interests that can help enrich their time together. Furthermore, we utilize technology like our app to make scheduling a breeze, even on short notice.
These services in combination with the high caliber of our team make Jovie a real standout in the industry, and have contributed to our becoming the fastest-growing childcare provider in the U.S.
Our Guiding Principles
Jovie values integrity above all else. We really care about the families we serve, and we work hard to help our franchisees cultivate long-term relationships with their customers. Along those lines, we’re also serious about taking care of our franchisees. Even if they have no experience with kids themselves, we provide them with valuable tools to help them start out strong. We work with them throughout the process of learning our business model, spreading the word about their new business and finding customers.
Multiple Revenue Streams
Jovie once specialized largely in nannying services, but today we’ve expanded our repertoire to include babysitting, backup care and B2B childcare services as well.. We’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the go-to source for virtually any childcare need. We’re always paying attention to the needs of our customers so that our franchisees can offer multiple in-demand services. Having multiple revenue streams is a great move for just about any small business because it opens them up to a wider range of customers and a greater likelihood of repeat business.
