Oxi Fresh’s Carpet Cleaning Franchise Opportunity Named Top Opportunity for Millennial Entrepreneurs
Oxi Fresh Featured in SmallBizClub Article About Millennial Entrepreneurs in Franchising
LAKEWOOD, COLO. // In a recent article on SmallBizClub.com, Oxi Fresh’s carpet cleaning franchise opportunity was named a valuable opportunity for up and coming millennial entrepreneurs. The article, “Five Best Franchise Investments for Millennials,” discussed this new generation, the challenges and opportunities they face, the potential benefits of franchising, and five top franchising investments.
The article’s author, Mr. Eric Bell of Franchisegator.com, says that the most recent generation entering the workforce – the Millennial generation – has grown up in a world that places great value on being an entrepreneur. From startup businesses to self-employment to technology booms, all of this has served to inspire many of this generation to consider opening their own businesses.
Tied to this interest, though, is a challenge of experience. As Mr. Bell points out, Millennials are still young and haven’t had significant experience in the business world. That means their knowledge base for business matters and connections within their prospective industries can be lacking. Launching a business without contacts or a backlog of experience can be a risky venture.
A way to counteract this deficit, as Mr. Bell proposes in the article, is through franchising. “Franchising offers a range of opportunities to fit the interests and skills of Millennials looking to start a business,” says Mr. Bell, “Many are low-cost and home-based businesses that offer both flexibility and independence.”
The team at Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning agrees with that sentiment. Jonathan Barnett, the company’s president, expanded on Mr. Bell’s idea. “Starting a business is tough – trust me. When I founded Oxi Fresh, I was 26 years old. I was fortunate enough to have some experience already, but I don’t envy somewhat opening a business with no real history. For those looking to get started, our carpet cleaning franchise opportunity can be a great way for someone to learn about the business world, the in’s and out’s of daily operations, and much more.”
Oxi Fresh is in fact one of the five franchise businesses that Mr. Bell recommends Millennial entrepreneurs consider. Mr. Bell’s reasons for selecting Oxi Fresh’s carpet cleaning franchise opportunity are the company’s implementation of technology-based solutions, environmental friendliness, and low-cost. He also highlighted Oxi Fresh’s rapid growth since 2006; the company now has over 350 carpet cleaning locations across the United States and Canada.
Regarding the advantages of Oxi Fresh, Kris Antolak, the company’s Vice President, said, “When you sign up for our carpet cleaning franchise opportunity, you’re getting the benefits of over a decade of experience and directed development. With Oxi Fresh, you can rely on your support team to really be there for you as you work to grow your business.”
Included in that support system is Oxi Fresh’s Scheduling Center that handles all customer calls, a Customer Relationship Management software platform, automated reports, email marketing, text message marketing, ad-building tools, and much more. The Oxi Fresh Home Office also provides excellent support; they even have two Profitability Coaches on staff to help franchisees launch their locations and make the most of their businesses.
