Chris Souk – Veteran, Entrepreneur, and Oxi Fresh Franchisee

What does the Army Reserve, luxury yachts, and the banking industry have in common? Chris Souk –
an Oxi Fresh franchisee who was recently featured on the National Veteran-Owned Business Association’s website.

In the article, “Oxi Fresh Franchisee Makes a Clean Start,” Chris talks about how he went from serving in the Reserve from 1991 to 1996 to doing work on the construction of luxury yachts before joining the financial services industry for over ten years. During these different careers, Chris realized something –  he didn’t want to work for someone else anymore.

“I thought,” Chris told NVOBA, “we all have to earn our living in one way or another, so why not be my own boss?” That entrepreneurial spirit drove him to look at new opportunities; as it happened, his brother had already purchased a franchise with Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning.

“I was very impressed, particularly with the concept’s green, oxygen powers carpet cleaning system.” After some research, Chris decided to join with Oxi Fresh in 2009. Since then, he’s put his business know-how to great use and become of the systems most successful locations.

One reason behind his success, according to Chris, is that there’s a strong alignment between franchising and the military. “The principles veterans learn in the military make them ideal franchisees. Just like the military, franchisees are given systems and best practices to follow in order to maximize success.”

The young gentleman was right on time and had a wonderful personality.The carpet looked good but with in a week started seeing pet stains again. Then it took more than anhour, maybe two days for the carpet to really dry. Would I use this company again, yes. I already mentioned to friends when they need their carpet cleaned to call your company. SS. - Nipomo, CA - 08/11/2019

First of all the guy come to my house was not pleasant, the guy that came was trying to charge me double the amount they quote me over the phone. when I asked the guy why the price is up he didn’t want to explain to me and he was being rude about it. What made this experience worst was the guy actually threaten me and telling me that’s not his company and telling me that I don’t care about what ever the company told him. He said it doesn’t matter what ever I do I will do in my way not the company way. Also the stain still there not even clean as supposed to. I fill I got robes my $104. I will never go back to this company and I will suggest no body should go to this company. The gentleman name that come was Fernando PH. - Falls Church, VA - 08/10/2019
