How is my franchise territory protected?
Franchise agreements outline a specific territory making owners legally bound to staying in their own territory.
Territories are very large with boundaries typically marked by county for the greatest chance of success. It wouldn't make sense for a partner to try to "steal" a family outside of their area because that family wouldn't usually be a drivable distance.
Our website and client intake infrastructure routes potential families to the correct area by zip code. Here’s an example of how it works in New Jersey; users have no choice but to be routed to the correct office.
Our technical infrastructure allows us see where every inquiry is coming from and where it’s going online so it would be very obvious if families were in the wrong territory.
What's a typical day like for a franchisee?
As long as they have a way to communicate with their caregivers and families, franchise owners (or managers that they hire) can work from anywhere.
Daily operations usually include these 3 activities:
1. Recruiting: Interviewing and vetting potential Nurses and caregivers
2. Case Management: Educating and communicating with families
3. Marketing and Promotion: Creating relationships with your local parenting community

What's with your name?
When people hear the name Let Mommy Sleep, we receive a chuckle or a comment like "wish you were around when my kids were babies!" And that's the point! We want to bring the joy of new parenthood to everything we do, and make sure our branding demonstrates exactly this. The company was named in 2010 and we recognize that in the past 12 years words around gender and parenting have evolved. And while the name won't change, we are committed to helping ALL parents and potential franchisees.
What do you guys do for the community?
