101 Best Franchises to Run From Home
Green Carpet Cleaning Franchise one of Entrepreneur’s “101 Best Franchises to run from home”
Lakewood, CO (June 17, 2009) In this depressed economy, a home-based franchise can be just what a budding entrepreneur needs to go from unemployment to business ownership while keeping the investment low. And for those considering franchise ownership, Entrepreneur Magazine offers a list of the “101 Best Franchises to run from home,” in their June 2009 issue.
“We are pleased to be listed by Entrepreneur as one of the top home-based franchises,” said Jonathan Barnett, President of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning®. “We provide a wonderful opportunity to someone interested in owning their own business. For a modest investment (under $30K), someone can become the owner of a high demand business within a respected and recognizable brand.”
Besides their usual benefits of franchise ownership, such as a proven business model, training, and ongoing support, Oxi Fresh offers something unique: a revolutionary cleaning system that uses the power of oxygen to break down stains. This all natural cleaning system leaves no residue and the carpet dries quickly. More importantly, the product is safe for children and pets. Because the cleaning system is efficient and non-toxic, continued use improves the air quality.
“What a potential franchisee should be looking for, particularly in this economy,” said Barnett, “is a business that, at minimum, offers three things: a recession-resistant opportunity, a business with a low-cost entry and low operating costs, and finally, a powerful marketing plan.
“You will find all three, and more, with Oxi Fresh,” added Barnett. “Our franchise fee covers the cost of our portable cleaning system and we provide a call center to receive calls and schedule cleanings, meaning you won’t need an additional employee for this. Because there is no need for a store front with our business model, Oxi Fresh franchisees have no additional real estate expenses. We also charge a flat monthly royalty fee, rather than one based on a percentage of sales. All of these features add up to big savings.”
Oxi Fresh currently has over 80 locations in the U.S. and offers protected territories of up to 110,000 households. With national accounts and tested and proven marketing programs, franchisees can grow their businesses quickly.
