Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning – A Proud Parent
Most parents love showing off their kids. Whether their bragging about John’s game winning hit, Jane’s amazing performance, or something else, they generally won’t shut up. But who can blame them? They love their kids and are genuinely proud of what they’ve done. Likewise, here at Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, we sometimes get that proud parent syndrome where we have to brag about our company – and there’s quite a bit to brag about. Admittedly, we haven’t won a soccer game recently or performed well in a play, but we have won multiple franchise awards.
Let’s start by looking at a ranking most new franchising companies, carpet cleaning companies especially, would like to have – The Fast 55. Every year, the Franchise Times, in conjunction with FranData, puts together a list of the 55 fastest growing new franchises. Given the huge number of new franchises out there, to even make it on this list – anywhere on this list – is a feat. Oxi Fresh was #9 for their 2010 rankings, with a growth rate of over 650%. That’s pretty darn good, isn’t it? Imagine a parents giddiness when they see their child beating their opponents by a margin of 65o%.
Of course, the Franchise Times is just one of the organizations that has awarded Oxi Fresh, another is the Franchise Business Review. I do suppose, though, that it would be more accurate to say that franchisees gave Oxi Fresh the award. The Franchise Business Review (FBR) does something pretty unusual when it comes to awards. Rather than surveying size, growth, or anything like that, the FBR instead surveys the Franchisees to see how satisfied they are with their franchisor. It’s a time for the owners to be brutally honest and critical. This year we ranked #7 for the Franchisee Satisfaction Award – the franchisees still believe we have what it takes and they like our green carpet cleaning.
Entrepreneur Magazine is one the most popular business related magazines to date – with an important emphasis on mid sized companies, franchises, and (you guessed it) entrepreneurs. Every year, the company releases their top 500 Franchises and numerous other awards. Getting into this magazine is one of the dreams many young companies. Oxi Fresh has now been in the top 500 two years in a row – #391 for this year. We’ve also received multiple other awards from this magazine. We were ranked as the #30th Fastest Growing franchise, and #9 for New Franchises.
I guess that means Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning has a pretty full Trophy Case – and we’re very proud of that.
