Oxi Fresh Ranked 9th Fastest Growing Franchise in America

April 26, 2010 by · 1 Comment 

Earning awards from the franchise industry is nothing new for Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning©.

In its short history, Oxi Fresh’s innovative carpet cleaning methods and cutting edge franchise business model has earned the company numerous recognitions of business excellence. The most recent is a #9 ranking in Franchise Times magazine’s Fast 55 – a list of the fastest growing franchises.

The Fast 55 ranking, first developed by Franchise Times and FRANdata seven years ago, is based on the percentage of growth of a company. Only new franchises that have been franchising just within the past 5 years are rated. According to the article, the Oxi Fresh carpet cleaning franchise achieved a whopping 671.50% average unit growth between 2006 and 2008.

Jonathan Barnett, MBA, President of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, is understandably proud of the company he started in 2006, which has now grown to over 180 locations in the U.S. “The Fast 55 ranking acknowledges the vitality of our business. We’ve been able to achieve such dramatic growth because of that vitality and because of the superior carpet cleaning service we offer to our clients. It is both exciting and gratifying to be recognized by the franchise industry for the hard work of our corporate staff and our franchisees.”

In an article for the Fast 55 feature, Barnett cited several reasons for the success of his business, including Oxi Fresh’s in-house call center that processes appointments. He said the center allows franchisees to work “on their business, rather than in their business.”  He also felt that, in this period of economic recession, having a low-cost and low-overhead business attracts franchisees.

What services do you offer?

As of now we offer residential and commercial carpet cleaning, as well as upholstery services.  We will be adding tile and grout services in the near future.

How do your services differ from your local competitors’?

We offer an eco-friendly cleaning experience that uses a non-extraction process that is non-toxic and biodegradeable for cleaning carpet, upholstery, tile and grout.  Because we do not use the classic extraction method like other companies, which can use up to 50 gallons of water, Oxi Fresh’s unique low-moisture method is able to clean surfaces effectively and safely using just 2 gallons of water.

What do your customers appreciate most about your Oxi Fresh service?

Our customers love how well Oxi Fresh cleans using organic products that create a healthier environment that is safe for their families and pets.  They also appreciate the quick dry time of 1 to 2 hours Oxi Fresh provides, where the typical dry time for other methods could take days, leaving the environment subject to mold and mildew.

Why did you decide to become an Oxi Fresh franchise owner?

We became interested in starting their own business and read about the immense growth of Oxi Fresh as a franchise organization and their organic approach to cleaning in Entrepreneur Magazine.  Being first time business owners, and also having a young family of our own, we became highly interested in Oxi Fresh’s greener cleaning method
