He says that, “Now, we are proud to support a year-long effort organized by Sophia Arana and Evely Forte of South Florida’s Communities in Bloom to help the needy.”

Mishaan adds: “We also want to incentivize our customers to raise money for Communities in Bloom rebuilding efforts following Hurricane Irma at our local stores.”

“We have also distributed plants at local hospitals. We are honored that OXXO will support our year-long efforts, especially because there is so much work to be done after Hurricane Irma, but also because there are always people in need in our community,” she says.

Patience Pays

Sometimes, one technology must wait for others to develop. Salomon Mishaan founded OXXO Care Cleaners more than 15 years ago with new, innovative ideas about dry cleaning. Not only did he want to make the process greener, he also thought that the 24-hour drop-off and pickup doors he’d seen in Europe would make sense in the U.S. They were a hit-the first such to be avail­able at dry cleaning franchises-but not until Skyping and mobile apps became available could he offer his customers a communication method that matched the convenience of the 24-hour doors.

To complete his customer service vision, Mishaan stuck with the same developer that had produced his point­of-sale software. The resulting app al­lows customers to use their phones to retrieve their clothing and receive notices tracking the status of their garments throughout the cleaning process. The app also allows OXXO to send custom­ers coupons and for customers to share their comments online.

The app is still in its beta phase, but Mishaan knows customers are happy to trade their OXXO card for a smartphone app. And he’s not finished innovating. For example, drones could make deliver­ies-OXXO drones, he jokes. But maybe it’s not so wild an idea. “When we talked about the 24-hour door all those years ago, people said, ‘Wow,”‘ he recalls. Now they’re in all 50 of OXXO’s stores.

OXXO Care Cleaners Launches Valentine’s Day “Community Care” Campaign For South Florida

OXXO continues its efforts to do good in 2017 both inside and out of stores

Hollywood, FL, February 8th, 2017— During good times and times of fragility, OXXO Care Cleaners® remains faithful to its philosophy of helping the community, sharing and caring that has characterized the franchise since its foundation. This month, OXXO launches its “Care Campaign 2017” in anticipation of Valentine’s Day, to benefit the Pantry of Broward.

“OXXO’s desire to do good for the communities in which it operates stems back to its foundation. In 2016, several OXXO stores were involved in unique corporate social responsibility projects, including a Sidewalk Sale benefiting Tomorrow’s Rainbow Organization, a clothing Donation campaign for Women in Distress of Broward County, a 5K benefiting United Nations Women, and a Toy Drive to Kids in Distress (KID). We also sponsored a Concert in our neighborhood and all proceeds went to Hollywood C.A.R.E.S for Haiti.” said Salomon Mishaan, Founder and CEO.

In addition to OXXO’s renowned innovative and environmental business strategy within the cleaning industry, the company carries out “Care Campaigns” for the local communities in which it operates regularly in an effort to give back, and will continue to do so throughout 2017.

OXXO will “Spread the Love” in February with a Peanut Butter Jelly Drive benefiting The Pantry of Broward. This pantry is a local food bank that serves senior citizens on low fixed incomes and grandparents raising their grandchildren. One of the staple items in the 55-pound box of food that clients receive each month is peanut butter & jelly. Since this is also one of the more expensive items provided, the Pantry is in constant need of ensuring there are enough of these for each box.

Through February 28, 2017, each OXXO customer that brings one jar of peanut butter and another of jelly will receive a 10% discount on their next dry cleaning order. OXXO hopes to collect 500 jars of peanut butter and 500 of jelly to deliver to the Pantry during the first week of March.

“My philosophy upon founding the OXXO brand has always been about caring for others. I believe this is the only way to do business. When customers take their clothes to other dry-cleaners that use strong chemicals to clean their clothes, they inhale toxic substances even after the garments are ready. How can that be? We don’t work with traditional industrial steam boilers; we work with independent electric equipment (rather than diesel fuels). We also employ automation (all the clothes get sorted automatically; it requires less space and it’s better for our franchisees.) Customers can pick up their clothes 24 hours a day through an ATM machine that is connected to our main conveyer. We believe in making life safe and easy for our customers and this is how we care. This effort is reflected in our community campaigns as well,” concluded Mishaan.

OXXO started off the year with recognition in Entrepreneur Magazine’s 38th Annual Entrepreneur Franchise 500 Ranking once again, where it ranked this year in 262nd place.

Additionally, franchiserankings.com just ranked OXXO Number 1 Best Dry Cleaning Franchise for 2017. To obtain the top ranking, OXXO was evaluated for its overall prospects and possibilities for growth and expansion across major markets, as well as its ability to perform similarly across a number of different markets and regions. OXXO’s management was graded for its  intimate knowledge of how to properly treat and clean a wide variety of fabrics, and how to properly train franchisees.

A High Growth Franchise:  2016 Results

OXXO made numerous advances in 2016, from a financial, technological and business strategy & improvement perspective. From a business improvement perspective, OXXO signed a new partnership with Top Terra, a company that has developed a new 100% Eco-friendly detergent that smells better and leaves garments fresh for longer. The detergent has been successfully tested in several stores to date.

On the financial side, OXXO grew its portfolio of stores, signing agreements with a number of new franchisees in Palm Beach Gardens, Orlando, Clermont, North Miami/ Keystone Plaza, Lake Nona Area, Doral, Weston, and Miami Beach. Most of these are stores that current franchisees opened, reinforcing OXXOs’ recently announced multiunit franchise strategy. In 2017, OXXO will be opening a second store in Palm Beach and a new store in Houston, TX. OXXO also renewed contracts with its Merrick Park and North Bay Village Franchisees.

Looking into 2017, OXXO is building new stores in East Boca, the Mimo District and Windermere, FL. The franchise also signed new contracts and will start building stores in Pembroke Pines, South Beach, Kendall, Coral Way, Pinecrest, Palmetto Bay, Dadeland and Palm Beach.

OXXO strives to be at the forefront of new technology for its business and for its customers. In 2016, OXXO introduced a newly designed Mobile App, developed by SPOT POS systems. The franchise also introduced a three tower conveyor style that is more efficient and reduces space issues.

OXXO also introduced two different business models to provide more options for interested franchisees including an Independent Franchise drop store without a plant and a Pickup and Delivery franchise (without a plant). Additionally, the West Palm Beach franchisee developed a partnership with Costco at which OXXO Gift Cards are now being sold.

OXXO’s Indonesia stores were named the 1st Eco-friendly Dry Cleaners in Indonesia by REBI (Business Recognition Award), and the Indonesia stores made the ISO 9001:2015; which is part of the method for the development of the OXXO concept a Quality Management System Certification. OXXO Indonesia also  partnered with the country’s biggest Banks to promote the brand through their credit cards applying rebates to their customers.  They also presented a new model unit: a Dry Cleaning truck to be used in areas where rent is high or unavailable.

OXXO’s desire to do good for the communities in which it operates stems back to its founding. In 2016, a number of OXXO stores were involved in unique corporate social responsibility projects, including a Sidewalk Sale benefiting Tomorrow’s Rainbow Organization, a clothing Donation campaign for Women in Distress of Broward County, a 5K benefiting United Nations Women,  and  donations to Kids in Distress.

Having sold over 50 franchises stores to date, Salomon Mishaan, Founder & CEO, has developed a winning strategies for the business, its franchisees and the communities in which OXXO operates.

Stay tuned for an even better 2017!!

Save money by opening multiple stores: firm’s drycleaning model

HOLLYWOOD, Fla. — OXXO Care Cleaners®, the environmentally friendly garment cleaning franchise based here that says it was first to use GreenEarth® solvents while offering 24/7 ATM-style service in a European-boutique setting, reports it is pursuing a multi-unit franchise strategy in the United States.

Having sold 50 franchise stores to date, and to fully consolidate the OXXO brand, founder and CEO Salomon Mishaan has developed the multi-unit strategy.

“We believe in and have been laser-focused on changing traditional dry cleaning to help make it earth- and people-friendly, with sustainability and satisfying our customers’ needs as top priorities,” says Mishaan. “Multi-unit franchising is the next logical step in growing our business!”

OXXO recently signed an agreement with Guillermo Gallegos and Alexander Quintanilla, area developers, who will own the region from Orlando to Jacksonville, Fla. They are charged with building out 20 franchises in 10 years, the franchisor says.

An individual OXXO store costs approximately $450,000. The more OXXO stores one buys, the more the franchisee will save, the company adds.

This news comes on the heels of OXXO’s international expansion via multi-unit franchise sales in Indonesia.

Henry Soesanto owns six OXXO stores in that country. “After an intensive market study and competitor analysis, I approached OXXO for expansion via multi-unit franchises into Indonesia because of their truly unique and cost-effective offering,” he says.

“Competitors have come onto the market in the last 10 years with copies of some of our unique qualities, but none have been able to perfectly replicate what OXXO does and, more importantly, the service and quality we offer our customers,” says Mishaan.
