This Marks the 12th Time We’ve Been Ranked!

We’re proud to announce that our carpet cleaning franchise brand has once again been ranked in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®! This listing, which has been published every year for the last forty-one years, analyzes hundreds of franchising brands to determine where they stand in the industry.

Entrepreneur’s team considers things like fee structures, support systems, brand growth, overall stability, and much more. “It’s a thorough vetting process,” said Jonathan Barnett, our company’s founder and CEO, “and so ranking on this list is a great sign of a brand’s strength and endurance. This is the twelfth time we’ve ranked, this time in the 469th spot. We’re very proud of what we’ve accomplished.”

We’re especially pleased with our ranking given the challenges of 2020. Despite setbacks and difficult times, Oxi Fresh ended that year stronger than we began, and we believe that in 2021 we will continue on our path to becoming the number one carpet cleaner in the world.

What Sets Oxi Fresh Apart

Entrepreneur magazine has a strict set of criteria that determines who does and doesn’t make their list, and those requirements look at end results – growth numbers, sales, etc. Those results, though, are in truth testaments to the hard work of the corporate teams and franchisees within each system.

Given that, let’s take a closer look at what Oxi Fresh has done to impact those results. Specifically, let’s look at the tools and programs we’ve developed that have helped make us one of the top carpet cleaning franchises in the world:

The Scheduling Center: When you own a business, there’s a lot you must manage, and it’s easy for those daily tasks to eat up your time. In the carpet cleaning world, one of the tasks that can consume your day is answering customer calls.

Thankfully, none of that’s a problem with Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning. We offer our carpet cleaning franchisees the Scheduling Center, a central call center operated right out of our home office in Colorado. Our friendly team is ready to help customers schedule appointments and to answer their questions.

Thanks to this, our franchisees are freed from their phones and can instead focus on expanding their businesses.

The Customer Relationship Management Software: There’s a lot going on behind the scenes at Oxi Fresh, and what’s behind those scenes is our special CRM software platform. This amazing program not only serves as a unified, online booking calendar for every franchisee, it also connects to many of our other programs.

Via these connections, it pulls and distributes valuable data, enabling our various marketing and operational tools to be more effective and efficient. The CRM software itself also does things like enable automatic notifications to technicians in the field, create marketing reports, and so much more.

Business Support Platform: In order to help our carpet cleaning franchisees run smooth, efficient businesses, we’ve created a single-sign-on platform that quickly connects them with the various tools and programs we provide. Everything from online training to ordering marketing pieces to accessing manuals is made quick and simple.

Veteran shares his entrepreneurial story in monthly Veteran’s Profile feature

Whenever a new location opens its proverbial doors, the entire team at Oxi Fresh gets excited. Douglas Green’s new location offering Broken Arrow carpet cleanings (and Tulsa, Bixby, Jenks, and Muskogee cleanings) gets to introduce a whole new group of people to the cleaning power of Oxi Fresh – that’s fantastic! They’ll get to see what the eco-friendly power of oxygen can do.

And it seems others are just as excited about Mr. Green’s new location, because he was featured in Franchising USA Magazine! In the first issue of the new year, he was the focus of their Veteran’s Profile spotlight in their regularly recurring Veterans in Franchising supplement.

“We were thrilled to see Douglas included in that great publication,” said Mr. Kris Antolak, Oxi Fresh’s vice president, “As a Marine veteran who has overcome trauma and disability to open his own business, Douglas serves as a true inspiration.”

From Marine to Entrepreneur – Mr. Green’s Journey

Douglas’ story of service starts in 1995 when he joined the Marine Corp. For eight years, he served the nation, conducting multiple tours of duty throughout the Middle East. He was deployed in Bahrain, Kuwait, the UAE, and Iraq, and it was while serving in the Middle East that he suffered multiple, serious injuries.

He experienced injuries to his spine, knee, and shoulder – the latter requiring total reconstruction – and had to endure PTSD. These harrowing injuries left him a 100% disabled veteran. Despite this, Mr. Green was determined to pursue his dream of being an entrepreneur.

“I’ve always wanted to be an entrepreneur, and these injuries were another obstacle I would seek to surmount. So, after coming home, I opened two businesses and ran them for 11 years. I’m proud I was able to do that, but I also had to face the fact that, due to my injuries, there were limitations to the physical work I could do.”

A New Opportunity with Oxi Fresh

And so Mr. Green began looking for opportunities that would enable him to own his own business and leverage the leadership and organization skills he developed as a Marine. He found what he was looking for in Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning.

“Though I am a 100% disabled veteran,” said Mr. Green, “Oxi Fresh’s model provided me with a roadmap to pursue growth and allowed me to run my business despite not being able to physically go out and do the work. I hope that my becoming a franchisee with this brand serves as an example to other disabled veterans that they too can pursue their own entrepreneurial dreams, and I believe that franchising is a great means by which to do just that.”

Some of the aspects of our model that are helping Mr. Green pursue growth for his Broken Arrow carpet cleaning franchise are our Scheduling Center, specialized CRM, automated marketing programs, and online training tools.

Marine Veteran Douglas Green Proudly Offering Carpet Cleanings in Tulsa and Surrounding Communities!

The launch of a new carpet cleaning location is always exciting for us at Oxi Fresh. We get energized when we know that more and more people will get to experience our oxygen-powered, fast-drying, eco-friendly cleanings. This new Bixby carpet cleaning location, which was featured on Franchising.com, will be providing services to 25+ zip codes throughout the Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Muskogee, and Bixby communities.

Heading up this new Bixby carpet cleaning location is Douglas Green. Before joining Oxi Fresh, Mr. Green served with the United States Marine Corps. for eight years; he was deployed in Japan, Kuwait, Thailand, Iraq, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. During his service, Mr. Green experienced multiple injuries and is living with post-traumatic stress disorder.

After leaving the military and owning two other businesses. Mr. Green chose Oxi Fresh for his new entrepreneurial journey. “I became an Oxi Fresh franchisee because I want to show other injured military veterans that it is possible to be a business owner,” said the Bixby carpet cleaner. “Oxi Fresh provides the perfect model for injured military veterans because even though I cannot physically do the work, I can still run my business well thanks to their unique processes and internal systems.”

A Carpet Cleaning Franchise Brand Built for Support

What are those systems Mr. Green is referring to? “There’s a lot of programs we’ve put in place for our carpet cleaning franchises,” said Kris Antolak, the company’s vice president, “But something central to each of them is the idea of creating speed through systems. It’s very easy for a new business owner to get caught in a trap of daily work. They get up, answer calls, respond to emails, work with their team, place orders, etc. At the end of the day, all of their time has been eaten up by daily operations, leaving next to no room for them to pursue growth.”

“And while daily operations are of course vital, we want our carpet cleaning franchisees to be entrepreneurs. We want them to be able to focus on growth and finding new clients, not on filling out forms. So, we created a variety of systems and programs designed to take care of that daily grind. By handling that for our franchisees, we empower them to really focus on business growth.”

The systems that will help support Mr. Green’s Bixby carpet cleaning business are many. They include things like our Scheduling Center, which answers customers’ calls and books appointments, and our customer relationship management software, which does everything from marketing reports to in-field notifications of schedule changes.

All of these tools are designed to help our carpet cleaning franchisees like Mr. Green pursue growth. And Mr. Green understands the advantages they offer: “After learning more about the innovative technology Oxi Fresh uses and the centralized franchisee support, I knew that Oxi Fresh was the perfect concept for me. Oxi Fresh’s commitment to providing a high quality carpet cleaning service to its customers was a perfect fit with my values, and I am proud to be an Oxi Fresh franchisee.”

We Earned a Spot in Entrepreneur’s New Top Growth List

At Oxi Fresh, we strive to both grow and provide excellent support for our carpet cleaning franchisees. As our vice president Kris Antolak put it, “Growth is key to any successful, healthy business. Without growth, you’re stagnating at best and, more likely, shrinking.”

“That said,” he continued, “growth without direction or control can also be damaging, causing brands to collapse under their own weight. That’s why we take care that, as we grow, we’re always working on improving and expanding our support structure and systems.”

That focus on both growth and brand improvement has been key to our carpet cleaning franchise’s long-term development. That’s why we’re especially proud to announce that we were ranked in Entrepreneur Magazine’s Top 150 Growth Franchises! This ranking highlights brands who demonstrate consistent, sustainable growth; we earned the 99th spot.

To place in this ranking, the various franchise brands had to have grown by at least five units per year from July 2016 to July 2019. Upon meeting that criteria, a brand’s information is run through “a formula that considers their total positive U.S. and Canadian franchise growth over three years as well as factors that negatively affect growth, such as terminations, nonrenewals, and other closures.”

Our company’s president, Jonathan Barnett, had this to say: “We’re honored to have been recognized by the fine team at Entrepreneur for our efforts. Ranking in this listing is, on our minds, further proof that we’re doing the right things for our franchisees and our brand.”

Strong Business Support

But what is it that we’re doing to support our franchisees? Let’s take a look at three of the support systems Oxi Fresh has developed for our carpet cleaning franchisees:

  • The Scheduling Center: Taking calls day-in, day-out is extremely time consuming. Oxi Fresh has resolved that problem by establishing a central Scheduling Center for all of our franchisees. We answer your calls, whether your customer has a dozen questions about how Oxi Fresh clean carpets or just wants to quickly book.Having the Scheduling Center on your side means you can focus on building your business – not just taking calls.
  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Software Platform: There’s a lot of data that goes into a carpet cleaning business. From job bookings to reschedules to employee hours to equipment assignments – it can get overwhelming.That’s why Oxi Fresh has built our Customer Relationship Management software. This live, online platform does everything from managing the appointment calendar to automatically building marketing reports. It’s an amazing piece of software!
  • Business Support Platform: Taking care of scheduling and calls is huge, but that’s not all we’re doing for our carpet cleaning franchisees. Oxi Fresh has also developed a powerful support platform that incorporates a variety of tools and programs.

These include everything from online training courses to automated email marketing to a survey system that keeps you up-to-date on what customers are saying – and there’s a lot more than that!

Marlon Khan and Kevin Joseph Offer Oxygen-Powered Carpet Cleanings in Humble, TX

A new Oxi Fresh location means a lot of things. A new carpet cleaner in Humble means customers can look forward to fast-drying, eco-friendly appointments that leave carpets looking and feeling fresher than they have in years. It also means that our two new franchisees, Marlon Khan and Kevin Joseph, are beginning their new business journey.

Marlon and Kevin, who are originally from Trinidad and Tobago, have been working hard for years – over twenty-five of them! They both worked in the gas and oil industry; Marlon helped with the refurbishment and building of oil refineries, and Kevin worked on both improving company market share and designing oil wells. During this time, though, each of them wanted to do more.

“We both always had dreams of owning our own business and after learning more about Oxi Fresh, it really felt like the perfect opportunity for us,” stated Kevin, “Being an Oxi Fresh franchisee provides us with a proven system that we can use to help grow our business in a new market.”

This new location, which will be offering carpet cleanings in Humble, Houston, Kingwood, Atascocita, and Crosby, is employing Oxi Fresh’s unique system. Using the power of oxygen, a green encapsulator, and a revolutionary machine, and other high-quality tools, Kevin and Marlon will be able to revitalize and refresh even the saddest-looking carpets.

“Plus,” Rob White, the Director of Cleaning Systems, added, “The carpets they’re cleaning should dry fast. How fast? Well, a traditional steam cleaner can leave carpets wet for 12-24 hours. Oxi Fresh carpets dry in just about one hour! That’s far more convenient. When Marlon and Kevin clean for you, you’ll be able to get back to living your normal life far faster.”

This new Humble carpet cleaning location will also be offering upholstery cleaning services, specialty carpet stain removal services, and total odor control treatments for pet urine odors. When your home needs refreshing, you can’t do better than Marlon and Kevin.

“We’re so excited to have this hardworking team out and about in Texas,” said Jonathan Barnett, Oxi Fresh’s founder and CEO, “I’m certain that they’ll be doing their absolute best to provide customers with a truly top-notch service backed by our green products and methods. We wish Kevin and Marlon the best of luck! We’re here for you!”

New location opens offering fast-drying, green carpet cleanings

The team at Oxi Fresh is always happy to announce new locations, because that means more and more people get to experience Oxi Fresh’s revolutionary approach to carpet cleaning.

So, who are the lucky bunch today? Tucsonans! This August, Oxi Fresh franchisee Hunter O’Dowd and his parents, Paige and John, opened this new location offering Tucson carpet cleanings, tile and grout cleanings, upholstery cleanings, pet urine and odor treatments, and specialty stain removal services.

Hunter is leading this location and was inspired by the entrepreneurial path of his parents. Last year, they opened an Oxi Fresh franchise that began servicing Phoenix, Peoria, Surprise, Mesa, and Goodyear. Seeing that business in action helped propel him into opening his own carpet cleaning location.

“I have always been looking for ways to work for myself, and given my family’s background with Oxi Fresh, this seemed like a great opportunity to become a small business owner,” said Hunter, “Oxi Fresh’s solid business model provides a clear path for growth, and with the guidance of my parents and Oxi Fresh corporate, I am confident that this new location will be a great success. I look forward to providing a high quality Tucson carpet cleaning service for years to come.”

If you’ve never had a carpet cleaning with Oxi Fresh before, you might wonder what it looks like. What’s the method that’s earned us almost two hundred thousand reviews at 4.6 out of 5 stars?

An Oxi Fresh appointment starts with an application of our main cleaning solution – a combination of an oxygenated booster and a green encapsulator. These products will break down dirt and trap it in microscopic crystals. After that, we’ll agitate the carpets with our cleaning machine. Its dual, counter-rotating brushes will get deep into the carpet pile and lift out trapped debris.

Following that, we’ll vacuum and groom the carpets, ensuring you’re left with great looking floors. Not only will they look good, though, but they’ll also dry fast. Oxi Fresh’s Tucson carpet cleaning method will dry in just about one hour. That’s a heck of a lot better than the 12-24 hour dry times you get with some steam cleaners.

So, if you’re looking for top-notch results that goes hand-in-hand with greater convenience, Hunter O’Dowd is the guy to turn to!

“We are proud to welcome Hunter to Oxi Fresh and look forward to him following in his parents’ footsteps,” stated Oxi Fresh CEO and founder Jonathan Barnett, “The O’Dowd’s understand the important services we provide to our customers and how they can help make homes safer and cleaner. We look forward to seeing the positive impact they will have on the Tucson community.”

Fourth of July is meant to be a fun time spent with your friends and family. Given the current pandemic, though, your celebrations may be smaller this year. Just you, your family, and your pets.

And while your pets will no doubt love all the extra attention they’ll get on the Fourth, what they’d appreciate even more is if we all follow these pet safety tips regarding fireworks. After all, the fireworks can be very frightening to animals who can panic, run away, and accidentally injure themselves.

So here are some July 4th fireworks pet safety tips for before, during, and after the celebrations.

Before the Fourth

  • Ensure that their tags have up-to-date contact information.
  • Make sure the collar and tags are in good condition. You don’t want the collar to fall off or the tags to be unreadable.
  • One of the best pet safety tips is to get your pets microchipped. If your pet runs away, a microchip can be really helpful for those trying to return them.
  • Take some new photos of your pet. In case they run away, having these recent photos will be helpful for signage/posting online.
  • Make sure that your yard is secure. Look for gaps in the fencing, holes they may have dug, etc. Remember that a frightened animal can run faster and jump higher than you’d normally expect.

During the Fourth

  • Early in the morning on the Fourth, take your pet for a long walk or run. Throughout the day, do your best to exercise them so that they’re tuckered out before the fireworks go off. By doing this, they may sleep through the fireworks. Of course, take care to not overexert your pets.
  • Create a safe space in your house that the pet can’t escape from. Close up the windows, draw the blinds, move their bed or crate into the room, etc. You may also want to turn on music or the television and provide them with a special treat or a toy that they’ll focus on. The treat should take some time to eat, like something frozen or a treat toy stuffed with kibble.
  • Put your pet in this safe space before the fireworks begin. Trying to corral them once they’re scared will be much more difficult.
  • If you’re having guests over, make sure they know to not let your pet out of the safe room once you’ve put them in there.
  • If your pet is particularly frightened of fireworks, you may want to invest in an anxiety vest. While not a fully proven pet safety tip, these vests can help some pets.
  • Last but certainly not least, don’t bring your pets to large events where there will be fireworks. Exposing them to large crowds, loud noises, and strange smells will not be helpful in trying to keep them calm. On top of that, if your pet does bolt, they are at a greater risk for getting lost, injured, or injuring someone else.

After the Fourth

  • If you were setting off fireworks during the Fourth, make sure you clean up any debris they leave behind. Fireworks are fun but are also full of nasty chemicals that aren’t good for you, your yard, or your pets. And while you know to not eat a spent firecracker, your pet may not.
  • During your walks after the Fourth, keep a close eye out for firework debris as well. Pick it up and toss it before your pet snags them.

Carpet Cleaning Franchise Leader Shares Thoughts on Business During COVID

Authority Magazine, a publication that specializes in “ interesting ‘thought leadership interview[s],’” has released an interview with our carpet cleaning franchise company’s founder and CEO, Jonathan Barnett.

This interview covered a wide range of subjects. Charlie Katz, the interviewer, asked Mr. Barnett about his entrepreneurial history, his thoughts on having a “‘purpose driven business,’” and much more.

The focus of the interview, though, was on both how the current pandemic has affected the company and how the company planned to grow in the future.

Below are some highlights from the interview:

The “Green Light” Principle

Early in the article, Mr. Katz asked Jonathan if there was a principle that has helped guide him throughout the course of his business history.

Jonathan responded that the “Green Light” philosophy has been key to how he has operated the carpet cleaning franchise company. “You’ve got to act like you have the green light in life. Move ahead and take action. Don’t wait for things to be perfect because they never will be.”

Mr. Barnett explained that many people live their lives, “waiting for some perfect opportunity, some ideal situation.” He likens that to “sitting at a red light, except there really is no red light. That red they’re seeing is their own fears, hesitation, or the unfounded belief that there’s a perfect scenario that will show up if they just wait.”

Instead of living that way, Mr. Barnett later encouraged people to, “Get out there and be bold. Some things won’t work out, sure, but it’s better than waiting around for nothing.”

The Challenges of COVID-19

When it came to COVID-19, Mr. Katz asked Jonathan about the challenges that the pandemic has presented. Mr. Barnett’s answer was twofold, detailing the difficulties faced by both the Home Office and the carpet cleaning franchise locations themselves.

For the former, since the company is “a very collaborative crew” that “enjoy[s] working together,” they’ve found isolation has made the process of serving the franchisees more challenging. That said, Oxi Fresh was already somewhat prepared for this. “We already used Slack, so we just added Google Hangouts and just good old-fashioned conference calls to that. Through these tools, we can all stay in touch and stay informed. It’s not the same as being together, but we’re making it work.”

Then Jonathan talked about the carpet cleaning franchisees themselves, addressing their decreased sales and the steps the Home Office has taken to help. These include deferred fees, a new product that meets “the EPA’s criteria for use against SARS-CoV-2 (the cause of COVID-19),” updated marketing, and new safety standards.

“Thankfully,” Mr. Barnett said later, “Bookings are back up to pre-COVID levels for this time of year. We think our efforts and the efforts of our franchisees have been key to this rebound.”

Oxi Fresh and the Future

Near the end of the interview, Mr. Katz asked, “what do you personally plan to do to rebuild and grow your business or organization in the Post-Covid Economy?”

Mr. Barnett explained that Oxi Fresh has already been working on this. Through our marketing efforts throughout the pandemic, we’ve been, ”planting the seeds of our recovery and future growth.” Oxi Fresh plans to continue its marketing push as the weeks pass and more customers try to catch up on the spring cleanings they had to put off.

“We’re already back to where we were at this time of year in 2019, and I think we’re going to continue to grow,” said Mr. Barnett after the interview, “I think as a brand, we will come out of this stronger.”

How To Get Ketchup, BBQ Sauce, and Mustard Stains Out of Clothing

Summer is here, and that means it’s BBQ time! Hot dogs, hamburgers, ribs – yum, yum, yum!

But for every delicious dish served up, there’s always the chance it’ll end up on your kids’ clothes and not on their plates.

Oxi Fresh is here to help you with these summer spills and spots, here’s a guide on how to clean ketchup stains on clothes, BBQ stains on clothes, and mustard stains on clothes.

Quick Note: When using any cleaning solution (white vinegar, bleaches, etc.) on a garment, always test the products first to make sure they won’t damage the article.

Ketchup & BBQ Stains

What You’ll Need

  • White Vinegar
  • Liquid Laundry Detergent
  • Sponge
  • Spoon
  • Rubber Gloves
  • Soft Brush

– Step 1 ­–
Grab a spoon and use it to scoop up as much of the staining material as you can. Work from the outside edge of the spot towards the middle. That will help prevent the stain from spreading.

– Step 2 ­–
Flip the garment inside out and run cold water through the back of the spot. This will flush out more of the ketchup or BBQ sauce. (Make sure the dirty rinse water isn’t then hitting other parts of the garment.)

– Step 3 ­–
Put on a pair of gloves and work some liquid laundry detergent into the spot. Make sure you put a gloved hand behind the spot to prevent it from spreading around when you do this.

– Step 4 ­–
With a gloved hand behind the spot, “tamp” the top of the spot with a soft brush (a semi-vigorous tapping). This will help break up the staining material.

– Step 5 ­–
Grab your sponge and dampen it with the white vinegar. With your gloved hand behind the spot, blot the spot with the vinegar. Work from the outside edge towards the middle.

– Step 6 ­–
After letting it dwell for 5-10 minutes, rinse the spot out from behind.

Repeat these steps until you can’t get rid of any more ketchup or BBQ sauce.

Still have a spot after that? Try this:
– Step 1 ­–
Use a laundry stain pretreatment on the spot, launder it, but don’t dry it. If the spot is gone, then you can dry it. If there’s still a spot, try Step 2.

– Step 2 ­–
Work liquid laundry detergent into the spot and soak it in warm water for 30 minutes. After that, launder it but don’t dry it. Check to see if the spot is gone and, if it is, go ahead and dry it.

Mustard Stains

What You’ll Need

  • Liquid Laundry Detergent or Laundry Stain Pretreatment (w/o Ammonia)
  • Bleach
  • Glycerin
  • Spoon
  • Rubber Gloves

– Step 1 ­–
Grab a spoon and use it to scoop up as much of the staining material as you can. Work from the outside edge of the spot to the middle.

– Step 2 ­–
Flip the garment inside out and run cold water through the back of the spot.

– Step 3 ­–
Put on a pair of gloves and, with a gloved hand behind the spot, work some liquid laundry detergent or a laundry stain pretreatment into the spot.

Make sure the product you’re using doesn’t have ammonia, as that can cause the turmeric in the mustard to set.

– Step 4 ­–
After letting it dwell for 5-10 minutes, rinse the spot out from behind.

– Step 5 ­–
Launder the garment at high heat with bleach; use a bleach appropriate for the garment. Don’t dry the item yet.

– Step 6 ­–
Check to see if the stain is gone. If most of it is, but some remains, try this process again. Once there’s no more stain, go ahead and dry the garment.

Still have a spot after all that? Try this:

– Step 1 ­–
Put on a pair of gloves and, with a gloved hand behind the spot, work some glycerin into the stain.

– Step 2 ­–
After letting it dwell for 15 minutes, rinse the spot out from behind.

– Step 4 ­–
At this point, try repeating Step 5 from above.
