LAKEWOOD, CO--(Marketwire - March 22, 2010) - Jonathan Barnett, MBA, President of Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning®, is pleased to note that Oxi Fresh has garnered yet another recognition within the franchising industry. Entrepreneur Magazine has recently announced their Top 25 New Franchises for 2010 and Oxi Fresh's carpet cleaning franchise has received a ranking of #9.
The Top 25 New Franchise category recognizes businesses that began franchising within the last five years (since 2005). These rankings are a subset of the annual Entrepreneur Franchise 500® rankings and Entrepreneur calls them "the newest stars in the franchising world this year." Franchise companies are judged by objective, quantifiable measures of a franchise operation. "The most important factors include financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system."
"In 2009 we received a #19 ranking in the Top 25 New Franchise category," said Barnett, "and this year we achieved a #9 ranking. I believe our consistency and stability have kept us in this exclusive category. Growing our business during a recession really proves the validity of our system: we provide a green carpet cleaning service to our clients while offering a low-cost, home-based opportunity to franchisees."
Since Oxi Fresh began franchising in 2006, they have opened 181 carpet cleaning franchises in 43 states. "Our effective green carpet cleaning service," said Barnett, "has proven to be popular with the public and is a product our franchisees are proud to offer. And looking long-term, we expect our franchisees to really benefit as communities embrace ways to reduce toxins in the environment. Oxi Fresh has the right product at the right time."
Oxi Fresh provides a green carpet cleaning method using a low moisture process and non-toxic cleaning agents. Franchisees 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.
