OXXO Care Cleaners ® Redefines Green Dry Cleaning in Texas

Frisco, TX, February 13, 2018 OXXO Care Cleaners®, the environmentally friendly garment cleaning franchise that operates nationwide and was first to use Greenearth® solvents while offering 24/7 ATM-style service in a European boutique setting, announced  today the ten year anniversary of its Frisco location and business growth at both its Frisco and Plano, TX-based stores.

“Marisol and Francesco Cardiello were very successful restauranteurs in Venezuela, owning several family service businesses. They contributed these qualities to the Texas market when opening an OXXO in Frisco. Their success over the last decade led to the opening of an OXXO in Plano. Thanks to the market attraction to both of these stores, we were able to open an OXXO in Houston in 2017 and call Texas home,” said Salomon Mishaan, Franchisor.

“Frisco is one of the fastest growing cities in Texas, and Plano is booming. Both are creating a lot of jobs and infrastructure development. With new households showing up every day, they need places to live, a road to drive their cars on, schools, and yes, modern dry cleaners. We are proud to be job creators in Frisco and Plano and hope to expand very soon. Clients at both our stores have been increasingly using the 24/7 ATM style door, the OXXO Care Card and recognizing our efforts to protect the environment,” said Marisol Cardiello, OXXO’s Frisco and Plano store owner. “Our clients in this market are very demanding and our goal has always been to exceed their expectations,” she added.

OXXO is already the only green cleaning franchise in the area to combine hand ironing on site and in front of the customer, 24/7 pick-up and drop-off, the use of a dermatologic and eco-friendly cleaning solvent called “GreenEarth®,” instead of the commonly used chemical perc (Perclorethelyne) a carcinogenic which is unhealthy for both human skin and garments, and independently heated equipment allowing for the air-conditioned boutique style concept imported from Europe.

OXXO’s Frisco (5110 Eldorado Parkway), Plano (2208 Dallas Pkwy, #317) and Houston (1275 Eldridge Pkwy) locations are experiencing fast payback with strategic locations in shopping malls with easy parking access, where OXXO is welcome, but hold certain resistance to traditional cleaners due to the volatility of the boilers and to strong chemical odors and contamination.

OXXO’s Frisco (5110 Eldorado Parkway) is experiencing fast payback with strategic locations in shopping malls with easy parking access.

There are two types of franchises: those that unite high quality with notable added value and those that break tradition and revolutionize the market. OXXO® Care Cleaners has set new standards in Texas, and is now seeking further expansion throughout the State.

From a functional perspective, each store can clean up to 700 garments in twelve hours with just seven employees, including the manager on duty. The shop’s internal system is computerized and automated. This combination of planning and technology leads to savings in space, time and money and drastically reduces the possibility for human error.

Franchise lands 262nd place on Entrepeneur Magazine’s 38th Annual  Franchise 500 Ranking and BEST Laundry & Dry Cleaning Franchises by  franchiserankings.com

Hollywood, FL, January 10, 2017— 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, reports record results for 2016 and brings home  impressive  rankings in the Franchise space.

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.

“Competitors have come onto the market in the last ten 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 Salomon Mishaan, OXXO’s Founder & CEO. “We are proud of the brand we have built and continue to enhance our offering with regular updates to our clean technology.  Multi-unit sales are the logical natural next step to our growth roadmap,” he adds.

Henry Soesanto, who owns six OXXO stores in Indonesia, said, “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. OXXO is the only cleaning franchise, worldwide, that strictly requires the use of Greenearth, and fully electric equipment. I looked across the globe for a modern, green, environmentally responsible dry cleaning system, and OXXO is the only option.”

OXXO’s Story

Since the opening of the first store in Hollywood, Florida in 2002, Salomón Mishaan OXXO Care Cleaners®, Franchise Founder, decided to enforce the use of a dermatologic and eco-friendly cleaning solvent called “GreenEarth®,” instead of the commonly used chemical perc (Perclorethelyne) a carcinogenic which is unhealthy for both human skin and garments, and that emits vapors so strong that most dry cleaners have to leave doors open permanently. He also eliminated the traditional industrial boiler system which  works off fossil fuels and vapor piping that emit heat to warm equipment, installing instead independently heated (electric) equipment, allowing for the air-conditioned boutique style concept imported from Europe.

Eliminating the industrial boiler and using a safe and healthy cleaning solvent, as well as remodeling the look of the traditional dry cleaner and installing a 24/7 Style pick-p system has allowed OXXO to experience a fast payback as the franchise has opened doors dozens of  shopping malls, which previously held certain resistance to cleaners due to the volatility of the boilers and to strong chemical odors and contamination.

Mishaan decided to enter this sector because he saw that dry cleaning lacked  innovation. He was looking to make people’s lives easier and improve living standards via convenience, quality and nontoxic environmental safety. While he wasn’t familiar with the industry’s  details, he brought with him all of his experience from the textile industry.  From the beginning, he knew that he and his team had to transform the traditional system and generate a distinctive and better offering.  Instead of surrounding himself only with experienced persons in the service industry, he also incorporated a team of  technicians with industrial experience. Mishaan and his team had dedicated their entire lives to generating efficiency and convenience.  This formula is what has tilted the balance in their favor.

The inspiration for this Colombo-Venezuelan entrepreneur came from Europe, where ironing takes place both in front of the customer and can be observed through the store window. In OXXO®’s boutiques, this occurs for practical reasons like space limits, but Mishaan discovered it to be excellent for marketing and promotion purposes.

A great franchise, however, is not born solely from using modern high-tech machinery and a novel idea. Between 2000 and 2001, a team of executives and industrialists led by Mishaan reinvigorated the concepts of customer service, marketing and service processing and created OXXO® tailored use, maintenance, and operation manuals for franchisees.

From a functional perspective, each store can clean up to 700 garments in twelve hours with just seven employees, including the manager on duty. The shop’s internal system is computerized and automated. This combination of planning and technology leads to savings in space, time and money and drastically reduces the possibility for human error.

With just above average industry prices, clothing is returned by the third day, although OXXO® also can deliver results in six hours upon request. Most stores offer alterations and dry cleaning services. “We are trying to educate the client by teaching them that it is always best to have their shirts delivered on hangers and to use little starch,” indicates Mishaan.

Customer service at OXXO® goes beyond a friendly smile and on-time delivery of gently cleaned garments. OXXO was the first cleaning franchise in the United States to allow customers the option of picking up their clothing at any hour through an innovative 24/7 ATM-style pick up machine with an intelligent magnetic card or QR code on their phone.

The card serves to pay for and pick up garments, and can be recharged in the store or via the company APP.  OXXO® Care Cards contain the client’s information and transaction history. As soon as the system recognizes the card or QR code, the computer searches for the order which is then delivered through a small window on the machine. “Instead of going to the dry cleaner once a week because it is closed after 7pm, people are getting used to picking up their clothing when it is convenient for them. In addition, customers can leave their clothing to be washed,” says Mishaan.

OXXO® franchises range in price from 450k to 650k USD depending on certain variables. Apart from providing franchisees with strict usage and operations manuals, and compulsory and extensive training sessions, Mishaan’s team works hard to assure that both location and surrounding characteristics fulfill brand prerequisites and maintain quality standards.  The process of opening a 1,500 square foot store takes on average six months.

Notwithstanding, for the Management team, the sale of franchises is not as important as is the care of the brand itself. Store employees are trained to pay meticulous attention to each and every garment and customer and if a potential franchisee doesn’t possess the necessary qualities of business leadership, the franchise goes unsold.

Mishaan takes care of every detail which is probably why he has an impeccable and wrinkle-free brand.  “Entrepreneur” magazine has ranked OXXO® among the top five hundred best new franchises in the United States.  It should surprise no one that OXXO® aims to enter into the best 100 franchises in the country next year.  In the meantime, starchy competitors are trying to follow his footsteps, but this visionary’s brand has succeeded in racing so far ahead that it will  be hard  for anyone to catch up.
