I Spy With My Little Eye . . .
As kids, most of us played “I spy,” had games of hide-and-go-seek, or desperately searched for Waldo. If you play games like that enough, your eye gets pretty quick and can notice where people hide right away or where the red and white striped man is on the page. But you don’t need a sharp eye to keep track of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning this year – you’ll need a fast one.
We’re looking forward to a year full of powerful growth and productivity. We’ve already received numerous awards from Entrepreneur Magazine, the Franchise Business Review, and AllBusiness.com, all a testament to what Oxi Fresh has been able to accomplish as a carpet cleaning company. We were ranked #126 out of the Franchise 500 – a very high rank when you consider the thousands and thousands of franchising systems available.
This success is due in large part to a hard working team and having a cleaning system that works wonders. Our green carpet cleaning system uses the power of oxygen to break up the dirt and stains that latch onto carpets and our pile-lifting machine then lifts the dirt and stains up and out the carpets, leaving them soft, clean, and dry in about an hour.
At the head of this company is Jonathan Barnett. His leadership, team-building skills, and unmatched drive have been foundational to Oxi Fresh’s continued growth and improvement as a business. In only a few years, he has built Oxi Fresh up from a small carpet cleaning company into a nation-spanning franchise. It’s why the Franchise Times included him in their 20 to Watch, a list of the twenty people, businesses, or concepts that can’t be ignored in the coming year.
We were thrilled to hear about his inclusion in the list, because we know it’s a good sign for Oxi Fresh as a whole. It means everyone on the Oxi Fresh team – from technicians to the home office to all our franchisees – are doing their best to make Oxi Fresh the most impressive business possible. And where will we go in 2011? Well, we can’t say for sure, but we think we’ll be headed forward – and fast!
