Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning Services Prosper in Tough Economy
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
World’s Greenest Carpet Cleaning Service, Oxi Fresh, Poised to Reach 240 Locations in 2010
Nation’s Fastest-Growing Carpet Cleaning Franchise Prospers in Tough Economy, Plans To Open More than 50 Stores by the End of the Year
Lakewood, CO – Since Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning®, the World’s Greenest Carpet Cleaner®, began franchising in 2006 they have been cleaning up the competition, opening just under 200 carpet cleaning franchises in 43 states over four years.
In a time of economic instability and shrinking profits, Oxi Fresh managed to open 54 franchise locations in 2009. Under an aggressive expansion plan, the Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning® executive team anticipates opening another 50 locations by the end of 2010, resulting in more than 240 locations providing exceptional green carpet cleaning services to communities throughout the country by the end of the year.
“Through countless recommendations and referrals received from across the country, word quickly spread about Oxi Fresh’s green carpet cleaning technology,” said Jonathan Barnett MBA, President of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning®. He also said that, “This has resulted in entrepreneurs seeking out the Oxi Fresh franchise business, hoping to enjoy its unmatched growth potential, low moisture process and non-toxic cleaning agents, and the ability to be profitable.”
Current Oxi Fresh franchisee Jennifer Cook, who operates the Oxi Fresh of Lehigh Valley, praised the Oxi Fresh corporate team, citing specific aspects that attracted her and her husband to the Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning services.
“After meeting with the development staff, we found the leadership team to be people of great integrity with a remarkable product to offer,” said Cook. “We always wanted to start our own business, and were attracted to this carpet cleaning franchise because Oxi Fresh gave us the opportunity to manage and prosper a small business the right way. In our first year, based on the corporate training and ongoing support, our Oxi Fresh franchise showed a profit, a feat not many other businesses can hope to achieve right out of the gate.”
Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning® has experienced such success due in part to its significantly shorter dry time – one hour instead of 24 hours – which it achieves by harnessing the power of oxygen rather than chemicals and steam. Oxi Fresh also touts pile-lifting technology that pulls dirt and oil from the bottom of a carpet pile up rather than pushing it deeper into the carpet. Further advancing Oxi Fresh’s growth is the customer service scheduling center, which was established to ensure that someone is always there to answer customers’ calls and schedule appointments. After the appointment is booked, Oxi Fresh cleaning specialists will show up at an exact appointment time, not a window of time, so customers can schedule their carpet cleaning around their day, not the other way around.
All of these things have greatly assisted Oxi Fresh to achieve its award winning growth rates. With a low cost of ownership, flexibility, easy operation, low overhead, and a service people love, it is easy to see how this business can be an outstanding opportunity for the right people – like Dusty Henderson.
Mr. Henderson, a franchisee who owns Oxi Fresh of Inland Northwest stated that, “I sold a successful business that I started and managed for over 15 years to spend more time with my family. After diligently searching for more than a year to find a business that balanced work and family, I was so happy to find Oxi Fresh. As an Oxi Fresh franchise owner, I’ve found a business model that introduces a new method of carpet cleaning with the ‘green’ aspects of the chemicals, a system for sustainable success, and the flexibility to spend more time with family. It has been four months now since I opened, and I am booking jobs every day. Now I am enjoying the best of both worlds…on my time.”
