The SMS® Story
Sitting Made Simple® launched in 2008 by local nanny, Amanda Knapp. SMS® is the local, safe and reliable option for families and sitters. SMS® offers sitters for those random last minute needs, date nights, Mom breaks and the highly sought after school and summer programs.
SMS® has always been online, but our direct phone and email access to a local owner sets us apart from all the other options offered today! 11 years later the SMS® model serves families and sitters across 9 cities with ease. It’s the perfect balance of online and local. SMS® connects local area families and sitters online, while offering direct access to the local owner via phone and email for all those questions and concerns!
SMS® Franchise owners walk right into a successful model with full support of the SMS® Team for all software, marketing and operating needs. The tools, resources and support are one-of-a-kind! Not to mention there are 9 female owners, staff and a ton of information and data that those who choose to go solo will never get to experience.
Today, SMS® can be found in Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus OH, Dallas and Fort Worth TX, Indy IN, Nashville TN and Raleigh NC. STL Sitter in St Louis MO is based off the SMS® model.
