OXXO Care Cleaners Makes Its Mark in New Jersey for Innovative & Eco-Friendly Dry Cleaning
September 11, 2018 // Franchising.com // Fair Lawn and Short Hills, NJ - OXXO Care Cleaners® has paved the way for innovation as the first environmentally friendly garment cleaning franchise in the New Jersey metropolis to combine the use of GreenEarth® solvents on all dry clean garments, Top Terra ecological detergent for laundered garments, hand ironing and 24/7 ATM-style service. New Jersey residents have recently shown an increasing interest in environmentally friendly practices. In fact, 65% of donations to Environment New Jersey, a citizen-based environmental advocacy project, were from citizens of New Jersey themselves. Today, OXXO announces the growth of its Fairlawn and Short Hills stores resulting from demand for OXXO’s 24/7-services coupled with the use of GreenEarth® products, innovative technologies, fully independent electric and automated equipment, and hand ironing for a detailed and beautiful look and comfortable feel.
“OXXO was founded with our “WE CARE” philosophy and commitment and we apply it to every aspect of our business. We care for our customer’s health, appearance, garments, the community, the environment and our employees,” said Salomon Mishaan, CEO of OXXO Care Cleaners.
Traditional dry cleaners in the U.S. have not innovated their process for at least 50 years. Most still work with antiquated equipment like steam presses originally built for the garment industry and they burn the customer’s garments. They also work with Perchloroethylene, a very contaminating chemical that leaves a stench and fades the colors. “At OXXO, we work with fully electric and automated equipment and the safest cleaning solvent. Instead of using the industry standard method of steam pressing, all OXXO Care Cleaners® garments are hand-ironed to provide a detailed and beautiful look and comfortable feel. Traditional steam pressing uses fossil fuel powered industrial steam boilers and it actually shortens the lifespan of customers’ garments. In addition, all garments are automatically sorted to avoid mistakes in the delivery or losing garments. This avoids extra handling, where garments can fall off of hangers and get wrinkled," added Mishaan.
Traditional cleaners are taking notice. "We are actually in the process of converting a mom and pop dry cleaner to an OXXO Care Cleaners in New Jersey. Customers in New Jersey have truly embraced our modern and efficient dry cleaning service and we are excited to continue to grow here,” said Mishaan.
OXXO’s 24/7 service gives flexibility to customers with busy schedules. Many of OXXO’s New Jersey customers regularly use Fairlawn and Short Hills’ excellent pick-up and delivery services. OXXO’s Mobile App is popular among customers, which gives up-to-date information on the status of their orders. Terry K. Springfield said, “The cleaning is prompt and reliable. It’s ready when they say it will be. I’ve never had an issue with a missing garment.”
Salomon Mishaan, CEO of OXXO said, “We are thrilled with the results of our New Jersey stores. We encourage anyone interested in becoming a successful business owner to reach out directly to us. We can then refer them to OXXO franchisees who will provide a first-hand testimonial of the simplicity of our process and the assistance we offer to our network to make the franchise opening experience seamless.”
