Is there a fee?

There is a small fee of $25 for grandmas in non-franchised locations which helps cover our expenses in processing your background check and membership. Many people spend that much on gas in a week commuting to job interviews. Just one day of employment could easily pay for that fee many times over.

Todd Pliss, founder and CEO, reports he is a former "studio teacher" who has worked with children in the entertainment industry (including the Jonas Brothers). He says he brainstormed the idea after hearing many of the parents on sets complain about how difficult it was to find competent staff and after listening to their “horrific tales” of the help they had hired, often the local college kid.

Another benefit, explains Pliss, "Many Grandmas, after experiencing age discrimination, with tears in their eyes, have thanked us."

That in addition to legendary cooking and baking, Grandmas have incredible patience, trust, knowledge, talent, and decades of experience.

Grandmas have always been the glue that holds families together, and currently with the world economy tanking, and so many things going wrong, it's time to bring Grandmas back in a big way.

RentAGrandmas are:
   > Nannies
   > Baby care
   > House care
   > Chefs
   > Companions/Caregivers
   > Pet Care
   > Personal Assistants
   > Tutors

And, it a pitch for people to hire its Grandmas, the company says, “RentAGrandma has a record number of Grandmas, a huge talent pool, in so many fields. Why not hire those Grandmas and make our lives better? Hire Grandmas with trust and patience to care and nurture our loved ones?”

And in a pitch to potential grandmas-for-hire, it says, “Let this be a Call to Action to all Grandmas out there to come and join the movement, come join RentAGrandma.com now!”
