Are You Qualified?

Do you have what it takes?

Owning a moving company sounds easy enough — how hard could it be, right? Well, at Pink Zebra Moving, we hold our franchisees to a high standard. Our franchisees must serve as true leaders of their business, build amazing cultures, sell aggressively, make great personnel decisions, create a lean operating environment and manage their business in an ethical manner. In other words: owning a moving company is no easy feat. We award franchises based on a lengthy due diligence period that can last anywhere from 2-6 months. We want to talk with you, so let's start with some basic questions regarding your qualification as a franchisee.

Who Is The Perfect Franchise Owner?


Our best performing franchise owners exude positivity and are great problem solvers. Business ownership requires a franchisee to serve in a leadership role, and we believe the best leaders are critical thinkers that are high on life.

Business acumen

We prefer franchise candidates that have prior management experience with an emphasis on day to day supervision of blue-collar workers. This is not required but definitely preferred.


A franchisee will sign a 10.5-year contract after being awarded the rights to a territory. The legal contract is important, but our preference is for the personal relationship between us and the franchisee to serve an even greater importance. We strive to treat our franchisees like family and want franchisees to think of us in a similar manner.

Street hustle

A great franchisee has an entrepreneurial mindset with a strong sense of long-term success. In other words, the best franchisee will do just about anything to grow her business. Whether it’s speaking to a group of people or loading a moving truck, the perfect franchisee will use their passion to do whatever it takes to build an amazing business every single day.


We believe that every great business starts with a grand vision towards the future. We want our franchisees to know the purpose behind their business starting from day one. Quite frankly, you can’t know if you’re going in the right direction if you don’t know where you’re going in the first place. Thinking big and dreaming about the future is a requirement.


Every great entrepreneur built his business for a reason. A business does more than make money — it solves a life problem for the owner. We want Pink Zebra Moving to solve a problem for our franchisees’ life.

Are you excited about using our systems for your business?

Systems are the bedrock of any successful franchise brand. Proper execution of our brand's systems allows for a uniform service offering across each our markets. Franchisees that want to create their own local systems hurt both the overall brand along with other franchisees within the network. We want our franchisees to believe in our systems and even be excited about them. Our systems are what makes the brand different.

Do you believe that positive word of mouth is the most important metric within your business?

Our tagline says it best — Pink Zebra Moving is more than a moving company! Our brand relies heavily on customer feedback. In fact, your customer’s opinion will directly determine all of your employee’s compensation levels. That’s a powerful statement which no other moving company can offer.

Of course, no other moving company offers this because most businesses don’t want their customers to have so much control. You must believe that your customer’s opinion is the most important thing in the world. We’ll provide you with easy ways to get all of your customers to talk about your business. But remember, customer opinion only works if you receive positive feedback, so you must always be focused on providing a great customer experience.

Are you excited about using innovative and different sales and marketing strategies?

At Pink Zebra Moving, your primary focus will be on digital marketing-based strategies such as pay per click, search engine optimization and social media. We prefer to focus our entire marketing efforts on more new-age media options due to the tremendous ROI associated with the lead generation strategies. We’re proud to be a hip brand in a mature industry and we only want to work with individuals that want to market their business using new-age marketing concepts.

Are you financially able to fund your business?

The typical investment for a Pink Zebra Moving location ranges from as little as $130,706 to $190,597. A portion of the investment will be used as your initial fees owed to us, with another portion of the investment serving as working capital to fund your business during the first 12-15 months of operation. Our company does not offer financing alternatives and expects each of our franchise owners to be able to meet these minimum financial qualifications.
