Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning Recognized for 11th Consecutive Year in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500® Ranking

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning, one of the nation's fastest-growing and greenest carpet cleaning franchises, has been recognized for the 11th consecutive year in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®. The Denver-based company was ranked No. 353 overall and No.2 in the Maintenance: Carpet/Upholstery Services category.

Known as the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking, the Franchise 500 recognized Oxi Fresh for its exceptional performance in areas including costs and fees, size and growth, support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability. Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the magazine’s most competitive rankings ever.

"Being recognized in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list is an absolute honor. However, being ranked each year for more than a decade speaks to the quality and sustainability of our unique franchise system," said Oxi Fresh founder and CEO Jonathan Barnett. "Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the hard work and passion of our franchisees who are continuing to provide customers with the highest-quality carpet cleaning experience.”

According to Entrepreneur’s editor-in-chief Jason Feifer, celebrating 40 years of producing the Franchise 500 presented a good opportunity to step back and look at how much has changed since that first ranking in 1980. “While the franchise business model has changed little, the strongest franchise brands are constantly evolving and innovating to keep up with changing trends and technology,” he added.

Oxi Fresh is no doubt one of those brands.

Barnett started Oxi Fresh in 2006 because – as he learned in college and graduate school – carpet cleaning has a low barrier to entry, is excellent for creating repeat business, offers a service in high demand and has the potential to net millions of dollars.

Working with a team of chemists, he created an innovative and environmentally-friendly carpet cleaning system that uses green cleaning solutions, leaves no sticky residue and is safe for children and pets. In addition, Oxi Fresh’s cleaning method only requires two gallons of water per home – as opposed to the 40-50 gallons that other carpet cleaners use – and offers one of the fastest dry times possible: one hour on average. Tile and grout, upholstery and rug cleaning services are also available.

Today, Oxi Fresh has grown to over 370 locations throughout the United States and Canada, nearly a quarter of which have begun operating in the last three years alone. In addition, Oxi Fresh has saved more than 35 million gallons of water using its proprietary cleaning method.

“We are extremely proud of our accomplishments,” said Barnett. “Our development as a brand serves as a solid foundation from which we can continue to grow as we continue to establish ourselves as the top carpet cleaner in the world.”
