Hollywood, FL, January 22, 2019 — OXXO Care Cleaners®, the environmentally friendly garment cleaning franchise that was first to use GreenEarth® solvents while offering 24/7 ATM-style service in a European boutique setting, reported strong growth and impressive rankings once again in 2018. Company CEO Salomon Mishaan attributed these results to the company’s continued investment in new technology, consolidation in existing markets, successful pursuit of diversification strategies such as drop stores and conversions, unparalleled customer service, and sustained support of its franchisee network.
OXXO ranked once again in Entrepreneur magazine’s Franchise 500®, the world’s first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. Placement in the Franchise 500® is a highly sought-after honor in the franchise industry, as evidenced by the fact that Entrepreneur received more than 1,000 applications this year, making it one of the company’s most competitive rankings ever. OXXO was recognized for its outstanding performance in areas including unit growth, financial strength and stability, and brand power. OXXO was also once again named by franchiserankings.com. Lastly, Franchise Gator ranked OXXO among the Top Emerging Franchises, among the Fastest Growing Franchises and among the Top 100 Franchises for 2018.
“OXXO has, from its inception, aimed to be a strong franchise brand, which requires adapting to change and constantly innovating. Our solidified position in these rankings is a testament to our strength as a franchise opportunity, our commitment to our customers, service to our constant innovation. We are proud of the brand that we have built based on the “We Care” philosophy and are confident OXXO Care Cleaners has a bright future,.” said Salomon Mishaan CEO of the OXXO Care Cleaners franchise.
In 2019, as part of its growth strategy, OXXO will continue to focus on conversions, stand alone kiosks at major enterprises such as the one installed last March at NBC Miami Studios, and on consolidating its success in major U.S. states such as Florida and Texas. Today, OXXO has 60 stores and is pursuing outside investment as the business grows rapidly.
OXXO made numerous advances in 2018, from a technological and business strategy & improvement perspective.
In 2018, OXXO celebrated several Franchise anniversaries including 10 years at Miami Midtown and Miami Lakes Stores, 10 years at the Frisco, TX OXXO for 2019, and opened new stores in Miami Shore, and in downtown Miami.
OXXO also recently announced that it brought its Green Boutique technologies to traditional mom and pop dry cleaners across the U.S. through their new Business Conversion Initiative as the first conversion in Doral Florida. Conversions involve the replacement of contaminating chemicals, old-fashioned steam boilers, steam presses, and other outdated dry-cleaning equipment used by most American dry cleaners today with OXXO’s automated, fully electric equipment, such as the OXXO European Style Shirt Mannequin and ATM-style Drop Off and Pick Up Conveyor. Technology, storefronts and branding are completely revamped during the conversion process.
In addition, OXXO participated in numerous tradeshows and events, and CEO Salomon Mishaan, CEO presented “The Most Innovative Dry Cleaning Franchise in America Today” to multi-unit operators at the Franchise Times Finance & Growth Conference 2018.
Salomon Mishaan, founder and CEO, has bet on a business model and brand that works well for the industry and consumers alike.
