SAN FRANCISCO, CA- September 10, 2021—GoGoGrandparent, leader in coordinating mobility and meals and more for people as they age, celebrates National Grandparents’ Day this Sunday, September 12 2021. This year also marks the company’s 5th anniversary in business, having fulfilled millions of requests for hundreds of thousands of customers across the United States and Canada since 2016.
GoGoGrandparent started as a simple and powerful idea from the CEO’s own grandmother, Betty: make on-demand services work reliably for me. Betty wanted to use on-demand services, but wasn’t sure the technology would be able to work for her and her needs. GoGo’s co-founders set out to design a better experience for her--something she could use herself via telephone number and have confidence knowing her requests and preferences are handled with attention and expert care.
All of GoGoGrandparent’s services--from rideshare, meals, grocery delivery and more--have been aimed at bridging the digital divide for customers who don't use smartphones or prefer to speak with a live operator. Now Grandma Betty and hundreds of thousands of other people use GoGo.
“What started out as something useful to my Grandmother is now a service many people count on to live independently and confidently at home,” said Justin Boogaard, GoGoGrandparent CEO and co-founder. “We are honored to be a solution for people looking to age at home or people who are caregiving remotely.”
Since its founding in 2016, GoGoGrandparent has expanded its reach and offerings to continuously serve people better as they age. In 2020 alone, GoGo coordinated hundreds of thousands of rides for customers, responded to millions of calls, created 40+ new partnerships with communities across the country, and launched new lines of business--grocery and meal delivery--to meet the changing needs of customers during the pandemic and beyond.
“In these uncertain times, it is comforting to know that GoGo maintains its dedicated and professional services to its clientele,” wrote 92-year-old GoGo Customer Jodie. “We can rely on its integrity and devotion to the well-being of its customers.”
In acknowledgment of Grandparent’s Day, Boogaard said, “At GoGo, we are always looking for ways to create better, more accessible services for people of all ages and abilities. That’s how we honor our grandparents and older generations today and every day.”
