Oxi Fresh is headquartered in Lakewood, Colorado, and now boasts over 400 locations across the United States. There are also a handful of Oxi Fresh franchises in Canada. The company, which offers a unique environmentally friendly carpet cleaning process, was founded by Jonathan Barnett in 2006 and began franchising the same year.

Oxi Fresh is considered to be a frontrunner in the carpet cleaning segment, having ditched traditional methods for innovative technology with powerful but nontoxic cleaning solutions. As a franchisee, you'll be using a proprietary oxygenated cleaning system that effectively breaks down carpet stains for easier removal and faster drying.

The franchisor offers a central schedule and appointment booking system that's user-friendly and nationally recognized. Oxi Fresh has also developed a marketing program that's effective and can reach customers.

Why You May Want to Start an Oxi Fresh Franchise

As an Oxi Fresh franchisee, the carpet cleaning company’s management team is always available to assist you with your problems or questions. You can operate this business from home, allowing you to manage and coordinate cleaning crews in your exclusive market territory. Additionally, you can operate an Oxi Fresh franchise as an absentee owner or part-time business, furthering your flexibility.

The carpet, tile, grout, and upholstery cleaning system that Oxi Fresh uses is effortlessly portable and doesn't require large amounts of water. You will be given carpet and upholstery machines, a high-performance Oxi Pro vacuum, and packs of branded products and additional equipment.

Oxi Fresh operates a scheduling center where calls are received, booked, and forwarded, allowing you to maximize your time and offer excellent customer service. As a franchisee, you'll also have access to turnkey advertising solutions focused on bringing traffic to your business.

What Might Make an Oxi Fresh Franchise a Good Choice?

Oxi Fresh cleaning system is considered green, and they've backed it up with an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for their core solution. Using energy-efficient machines, water conservation, cleaning products safe for children or pets, plus recycling at its offices or the field are also practices towards their green mission. 

Opening an Oxi Fresh franchise will require an initial investment made up of a franchise fee and other startup costs. You should also be prepared for ongoing fees that will include royalty fees, advertising fees, and potential renewal fees. It may be wise to consult with an attorney or financial advisor as you decide if you are financially sound enough to open an Oxi Fresh franchise.
