About Granny Nannies Licensing Group LLC

Rob and Kirsten Hodgson were inspired to open the first Granny Nannies in Orlando, Florida, in 1990, after struggling to find in-home care for Rob's aging grandmother. They began franchising in 1997. Granny Nannies franchises offer a variety of care services, including home care for seniors and people recovering from surgery or injury, hospice care, and care for special-needs children.
