LAKEWOOD, Colo., June 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- In less than five years, Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning® has become one of the nation's fastest-growing, environmentally-friendly carpet cleaning franchises, growing to more than 235 locations across the United States with more in development. For the past three years, Oxi Fresh has earned top rankings in Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500 and, despite a difficult economic climate, they leapt from #391 in 2010 to #126 in 2011. Within the "Top New Franchise" category Oxi Fresh ranked an impressive #3.
"Oxi Fresh has only been franchising since 2006 and we have never ranked so highly before in any of Entrepreneur magazine's Franchise 500 categories," said Jonathan Barnett, Oxi Fresh founder and president. "We're very proud and I am excited to see what next year will bring."
Because Oxi Fresh is a home-based business, the overhead and start-up investment is comparatively low. The franchise fee is $29,900 and the total investment is between $34,630 and $57,010. Franchisees enjoy freedom from scheduling hassles as the company has a 24-hour national call center that books appointments on their behalf.
Oxi Fresh also prides itself on its green carpet cleaning process, which uses environmentally friendly cleaning agents - one of which earned the EPA's Design for the Environment certification - and a low moisture system. This means Oxi Fresh only has to use about two gallons of water per home, rather than the 40 or more gallons traditional cleaning methods require.
