Entrepreneur MagazineThere has never been a better time to be self-employed, to become an entrepreneur and take your business future into your own hands. Entrepreneur Magazine is committed to helping these innovators make an impact in the business world by offering insights into new trends and important issues among companies large and small. One of Entrepreneur's longest running features is the Franchise 500, a study that determines the top 500 franchises in North America. To create this list, the Entrepreneur team examines hundreds of franchise systems, considering factors like their growth rate, size of their system, and their financial stability. These businesses are then ranked in whats considered one of the most trusted industry lists available. Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning is proud to have been on the Franchise 500 every year since 2009. It's a testament to the strength of our model and the value of our carpet cleaning franchise opportunity.

- Top Franchises for Veterans: #108 (2020); #100 (2019); #57 (2018) Oxi Fresh is proud to have many veterans as part of our carpet cleaning franchise family. We believe it’s important to honor and respect those who put themselves at risk to defend others. That’s why we partner with VetFran and offer a discount on purchasing a franchise to our veterans. That discount and our powerful business support systems and overall brand strength has earned us the designation of a Top Franchise for Veterans.
- Top New Franchises: #3 (2011); #9 (2010); #19 (2009) While Oxi Fresh has been around for well over a decade, at one time we were new to the franchising world. That’s why we’re proud that Entrepreneur ranked us highly on their Top New Franchises list. We placed for three years in a row, quite an achievement for a young company and a testament to the future of our brand.
- Fastest Growing Franchises: #79 Worldwide, #65 U.S. & Canada (2021); #89 (2018); #77 (2016); #62; (2012); #63 (2011); #30 (2010) How fast a business grows is quite indicative of its overall fitness, and the team at Entrepreneur recognizes this. That’s why they crated the Fastest Growing Franchise category in the Franchise 500®. And as proof of the vitality of Oxi Fresh, we regularly rank on this listing.
- Low Cost Franchises: #48 (Franchise Under $50,000 - 2021); #42 (2016); #84 (2013); #19 (2012); #26 (2011); #68 (2009) Opening a business isn’t cheap, so franchises that are able to offer a low cost, effective opportunity are highly valued. That’s why Entrepreneur put together their list of top-rated Low Cost Franchises. Oxi Fresh has frequently ranked due to our low start-up costs, very reasonable operating expenses, and overall low fees that still support a strong carpet cleaning franchise brand.
- Top Home-Based Franchises: #56 (2016); #30 (2012); #34 (2011); #85 (2009) The ability to run your business out of your home is a major advantage, so much so that Entrepreneur used to have an entire category of the Franchise 500® devoted just to that. While no longer an active category, Oxi Fresh regularly ranked in this list, our home-based brand helping give entrepreneurs an edge by reducing costs and keeping overhead low.
- Top Part-Time Franchises: #30 (2021) Entrepreneur understands that some businesspeople are looking for a great business to run on the side. They want something that doesn't take their full time and attention but is a fully developed business, nonetheless. That's one of the reasons they created the Top Part-Time Franchises category, and we're excited to have been ranked in their very first publication of this list!
