Fast But Not Furious, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning® Earns Franchise Times’ Annual Fast 55 Ranking
Lakewood, Colorado (April 22, 2010) Earning awards from the franchise industry is nothing new for Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning®. In its short history Oxi Fresh’s innovative carpet cleaning methods and cutting edge franchise business model have led the company to receive numerous recognitions of business excellence and make a variety of “Top Franchise” lists. The most recent is a #9 ranking in the April issue of Franchise Times, which lists the Fast 55 – a ranking of the fastest growing franchises.
Jonathan Barnett, MBA, President of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, is understandably proud of the company he started in 2006, which has now grown to over 180 locations in the U.S. “The Fast 55 ranking acknowledges the vitality of our business. We’ve been able to achieve such dramatic growth because of that vitality and because of the superior carpet cleaning service we offer to our clients. It is both exciting and gratifying to be recognized by the franchise industry for the hard work of our corporate staff and our franchisees.”
Franchise Times magazine and FRANdata have been working together to publish the Fast 55 ranking, based on percentage of growth, for seven years. Only new franchises that have been franchising just within the past 5 years are rated. According to the article, the Oxi Fresh carpet cleaning franchise achieved a whopping 671.50% average unit growth between 2006 and 2010.
As part of The 2010 Fast 55 feature, Franchise Times also profiled three companies, including Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, explaining what is unique about their model or concept. The article quoted Barnett, who founded Oxi Fresh when he was 26, who said that there are several reasons for the success of his business, including Oxi Fresh’s in-house call center which processes appointments, allowing franchisees to work “on their business, rather than in their business.” He also felt that, in this period of economic recession, having a low-cost and low-overhead business attracts franchisees.
What also attracts them is Oxi Fresh’s green carpet cleaning method, which uses a low moisture process and non-toxic cleaning agents. Franchisees also receive a protected territory, comprehensive training and support, and a powerful marketing program. With a low cost of ownership, easy operation and low overhead, this business can be an outstanding opportunity for the right person.
