Franchising is ‘Hands-On’

Ram Katalan, the chief executive and co-founder of NorthStar Moving Co., said that the company has a mission to put service back into what should have been the ultimate service industry: the moving industry. 

NorthStar currently has one franchisee, in San Leandro in Northern California, but Katalan said the company is waiting on the “perfect fit” for a business partner and may add another franchisee this year.

Katalan added that running a moving company is a hands-on business that cannot be operated remotely.

“It will require 100% of your attention,” he said.
