Motel owners excited to be part of New Richmond community
Almost half of the motels in the United States are owned by immigrants from India.
It's a perplexing figure, until you talk to Rao and Lakshmi Morusupalli, the newest owners of Riverfront Inn and Suites in New Richmond.
"There is probably no town in America with a population of 5,000 or more without a motel owned by someone originally from India," Rao said.
It turns out that motel ownership is the perfect business for family-focused natives of India.
