Founder Katchen Gerig created FOFFit as a way to fuel her love of adventure travel. As a lifelong traveler, she has traveled extensively throughout her youth and career and has no desire to stop.
But with a young family of four, the cost of traveliing became more and more expensive. Not wanting to slow down, she thought about alternatives such as AirBnB and VRBO to supplement these trips by renting out her home. However, along with a family, also came a home stocked with family heirlooms and memorabilia. She just wasn't comfortable renting out her home to people she didn't know. And thus, the idea behind FOFFit was born. The ability to rent your home to Friends and Friends of Friends (FOFFs) and communities of people with different interests, needs and values. People you know and trust.
As a former Googler, Katchen understands simplicity and putting the user or "host" first. It is our desire at FOFFit to put the host in charge and make renting to your friends and friends of friends as simple and secure as possible.
It is our hope that renting (and traveling) can become accessible to everyone in a simpler, safer and stress-free environment.
