Oxi Fresh Featured Three Times in Major Franchise Magazine
Franchising USA Magazine Highlights Rapid Growth of the Carpet Cleaning Franchise, an Award-Winning Franchisee, and CEO’s Insights on Veterans in the Franchising World
Lakewood, COLO. – Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, the World’s Greenest Carpet Cleaner®, was recently featured Franchising USA Magazine. The carpet cleaning franchise didn’t appear in the publication just once, though, but was rather a feature of three different articles.
The company’s growth was highlighted in the article, “Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning Growth Soars in Second Half of 2021,” in the “What’s New!” section of the magazine. In addition, Jennifer Cook, one of Oxi Fresh’s longest-standing franchisees, was the focus of this edition’s “Women in Franchising” feature. Last but not least, Oxi Fresh’s founder and CEO—Jonathan Barnett—shared his thoughts in the article “How Franchising Provides Veterans a Path to Entrepreneurship.”
“It’s always an honor to appear in Franchising USA Magazine,” said Mr. Barnett, “And triply so with the December issue! I’m really pleased to have been able to talk about all the advantages franchisors and veterans can offer one another, was happy to see Oxi Fresh’s growth highlighted, and thrilled that Jennifer was featured.”
The publication, Franchising USA Magazine, is well respected within the franchising community, with tens of thousands of downloads and around a million views every month. You can read this month’s issue here. For links to each article about the carpet cleaning franchise company, use the links further down in the article.
Oxi Fresh: Drying Fast and Growing Fast
The first of the articles is part of the What’s New! section of the magazine, a space dedicated to news and developments in the world of franchising. The article focuses on Oxi Fresh’s strong growth in the second half of 2021. The carpet cleaning franchise brand opened around 30 new franchise locations during that period, a significant number.
“Oxi Fresh has no plans to slow down growth any time soon,” reads the article, “there are currently over 300 locations available in the United States and Canada. Target areas for new locations include Oregon, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Alabama, and the cities of Los Angeles and Tampa.”
Jennifer Cook, A Top Oxi Fresh Franchisee
One of Oxi Fresh’s most experienced franchisees was the focus of the second article. Jennifer Cook of Allentown, PA joined the carpet cleaning franchise brand in 2007, just a year after it was founded. The article highlights her work before Oxi Fresh, what drew her to the brand in the first place, and her thoughts about her career.
When speaking about her experience as a woman in franchising, Jennifer said, “I can’t name a single time I have been made to feel lesser, been discriminated against, or talked down to, and I know not all women can say that. The majority of my employees are male, and I have never felt anything but supported.”
The Ideal Match of Veterans and Franchising
The third article was by none other than Oxi Fresh’s founder and president, Jonathan Barnett. This piece, featured in the Veterans Supplement, was titled “How Franchising Provides Veterans a Path to Entrepreneurship.” In it, Jonathan shared his insights on the synergy that can exist in this relationship.
“Like I said before, when it comes to entrepreneurship via franchising,” said Mr. Barnett, “veterans have some distinct advantages. Thanks to their military training, they have focus, self-discipline, and resourcefulness in abundance. Those qualities are vital to building strong businesses.”
Mr. Barnett went on to stress that the ability of veterans to implement systems was especially valuable. In his opinion, modern franchise systems must be systems-driven, and so the franchisee who can make the most of these systems has a distinct advantage.
