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.

6 Reasons Why Consumers Choose Eco-Friendly Companies

Most people favor products and services with ecologically beneficial features. Harris Interactive reports that four out of five Americans prefer environment-friendly merchandise. Green brands often forgo toxic chemicals, support environmental nonprofits or take steps to conserve energy. Consumers choose them for several different reasons:


1. Natural foods and cleaning supplies frequently offer health or safety benefits. Such items generally produce fewer skin and respiratory irritations. Unbleached coffee filters provide one example of an eco-friendly product that protects consumers’ health. Likewise, natural mouthwash is far less likely to cause cancer.

2. Around 62 percent of U.S. residents feel at least fairly concerned about the environment. They favor green living because it helps prevent air and water contamination. Eco-friendly products also support the wellbeing of plants and wildlife by minimizing animal testing, habitat destruction and pesticide application.




3. Just three out of 10 Americans express a willingness to spend more money for equivalent green products. Nonetheless, some people buy sustainable goods to save cash in the long run. Things like LED light bulbs, energy-efficient appliances and reusable containers initially cost more, but they reduce a person’s monthly living expenses.

4. Incentives from utilities, government agencies and nonprofits provide further financial motivation for some consumers. They usually come in the form of rebates or tax credits. These bonuses have encouraged many people to pay for solar panels, heat pumps and various home improvements.


5. Many people simply enjoy using eco-friendly goods and services because they deliver better experiences. For example, customers prefer the taste of organic peanut butter and the comfortable texture of cotton towels with no synthetic materials. Some individuals buy green cleaning supplies to avoid unpleasant artificial fragrances.

6. Consumers prefer to support socially responsible manufacturers and service providers. Genuinely eco-friendly features and initiatives often enhance a company’s image and make customers feel better about buying its products. People tend to trust businesses that strive to protect the ecosystem, help charities and treat employees well.

As concerns about the environment and physical wellbeing continue to grow, more and more people embrace eco-friendly buying decisions including dry cleaning. Many green purchases stem from a combination of ethical, financial, medical and personal reasons. This trend reflects the fact that now is an excellent time to buy a green business or eco-friendly franchise. Find out more about OXXO Cleaners Franchise Opportunities.

The horrifying truth behind Traditional Dry Cleaning walls.+

Is the garment-care industry really taking good care of your clothes?

Ever wondered how your clothes are being treated by your drycleaners? Who is pressing your shirts? How safe is the process done on your garments? For you? For their employees? Tag along and discover what’s hidden behind the curtain and sometimes behind concrete walls.

This is going to be a real eye opener.

For starters, traditional dry cleaners have heavy and complex machinery and running pipes all over the location. They use a highly toxic petroleum based chemical called PERC (percloroethylene/tetrachloroethylene) that is dangerous if inhaled and/or touched. Their poorly ventilated facilities have their employees inhaling particles of PERC fumes every time a dry-cleaning cycle is completed. To make things worse, after your clothes are being handed to you, you should let them air out of the bag and let them breathe before they are hanged in the closet. This way, what is left of the chemical will evaporate into the open. Another thing, your traditional drycleaners might not tell you is that after your clothes have been dry cleaned with PERC , they will keep bits of that solvent embedded in them, even after you aired them, making the clothes and your home exposed to a harsh chemical.

Many use the word green/organic very carelessly because of their solvent’s chemical components. Although they aren’t as harsh as PERC  they are still petroleum-based.

Their machinery is very outdated, industrialized and requires steam from an industrial boiler They use large steam pressing machines developed for the garment industry over 70 years ago that expel hot fumes and reduce pressing time and it burns and gives your garments a stiff look and feel. It is a sweatshop; that’s why they choose to keep it behind a wall.

Their tagging methods are old-fashioned; the tags are ruthlessly stapled to your garments without your consideration nor consent to make sure they do not lose them.


Is that how you really want your clothes to be treated?

Why do you trust your delicate garments to someone who is using harsh chemicals on them and hope for the best?

Why are you stepping over dollars to save pennies and endangering your health?

We have the solution of your dry-cleaning problems!

At OXXO Care Cleaners, we don’t hide behind a wall. Entering our store is like entering an exquisite Italian boutique. Our air-conditioned store is inviting, fresh smelling and our courteous and professional staff will welcome you with a smile and will make sure all your needs are taken care of. Also, we are proud to showcase our machines and the entire process to our customers it’s all in plain sight as you enter.

Our processes are simple to understand: Sorting, Spotting/Cleaning and Hand Ironing.

Choosing the best care for your garment.

After a careful, non-invasive and easy to remove tag is placed on your garment, (for individual identification purposes), we proceed to do a thorough separation and sorting of you colored and whites, and your laundry and dry-cleaning . Then, we proceed to take care of those extra special attentions you requested such as alterations, stain removals. Finding and providing the best care for your garments is pivotal at OXXO.

Find, Remove, Clean, Repeat.

Untreated, semi-treated and home-treated stains are always a challenge we are ready to tackle. We recommend our customers to always be honest about their stains and to not (under any circumstance) treat their stains at home. Instead, try to bring it in within 7 days and let us worry about the rest. We specialize in removing any type of stains that has been pre-spotted by the customer or that we find while doing the sorting process. Our cleaning process can be summarized in 4 points:

  • Stains? No problem.
  • Using our safe stain-remover products, we do our best effort to remove every bit of the stain.
  • We proceed to clean the garment according to what’s specified.
  • Did we missed something? Repeat the process.

Creating the perfectly pressed garment: Hand ironing at its finest.

After we have successfully cleaned your clothes, they are ready to receive a final personal touch. Unlike traditional dry cleaners, after your garments are clean, we do not harm your garments by using industrial presses that leave permanent creases sad burn and shortens the life span of your clothes. Instead we retrieve your clothes from our Eco-friendly machine that does not expel any chemicals into the air and we proceed to carefully hand iron your garments to give it a personal touch. Our ironers strive for perfection every time and your clothes are always virtually wrinkle free. Once your garment is perfectly ironed, our experts thoroughly inspect it before hanging it into our 24/7 automated machine.

Your shirts are not pressed with hot plates which burn the buttons, we blow dry them with hot air which prolong the life of the material and leaves your buttons as you brought them.


Next time you go to the drycleaners, look around you; does it look like they are hiding something? Does it look inviting? Does it look new? Does it smell inviting?

If the answer is no, maybe you should consider changing to care cleaning, OXXO CARE CLEANING, because you have had enough of regular dry-cleaning…

Check out: Our Genesis.

Fueled By Passion, Driven By Winners

 How OXXO Care Cleaners revolutionized the Garment Care industry?

At OXXO, we believe people should feel comfortable with what they wear, their skin should not absorb dangerous chemicals and they should live a healthy life. We believe we all have a purpose in life, and our purpose was establishing an environmentally safe dry-cleaning store that would totally revolutionize the way customers thought about dry-cleaning processes. We thought outside the box, we planned, we developed and we conquered the industry.

Think Differently.

We saw how regular dry-cleaning was being done: the percloroethylene (PERC) fumes expelled at the end of each cycle, the destruction of some of the precious garments beads and buttons and the rare smell found in the garments. We were mortified. We also discovered that PERC was carcinogenic to humans and the more often customers would dry-clean their clothing with PERC, the higher amount of this substance would remain in the garment. We knew that it had to be another way, a better and safer way. If not, we had to make it happen.


In the year 2000, OXXO Care Cleaners partnered with Green Earth Cleaning, a company who created and patented a solvent made of liquid silicone (liquefied sand). This solvent is non-toxic and when released to the environment, it safely breaks down into sand, water and C02. Also, Green Earth is safe for people; liquid silicone is the base ingredient for shampoos, conditioner and lotions. We knew this was it; we were making the right choice, not only for our customers, but also for our employees.


We believed this was going to be a breakthrough in the dry-cleaning industry and we had to share it with the masses. We developed our first ever dry-cleaning store in the heart of Hollywood, FL in 2001. We didn’t know what to expect, we weren’t prepare for the overwhelming commotion we created. People from all over the country came to visit our store. Some wanted to know how we did it, some wanted to imitate our processes and some wanted to share this breakthrough in the garment care industry with us.


We overcame all the obstacles and we conquered South Florida with our brand new state of the art facility. We opened a unique boutique-style garment care store, where the customers and the employees felt safe, happy and proud of being part of a greener, Eco-friendly movement. We reduced the space of a regular dry cleaning “factory” by implementing electric equipment, eliminating industrial size boilers and machinery that used diesel fuel.

Nowadays, we have over 40 stores all across the United States and we have 6 stores in Indonesia. We are also working closely with individuals who share our same passion for clothing and well-being and we will soon open more stores in the US and Latin America.

We have worked very hard to achieve all our goals. We are proud of having real Eco-friendly dry-cleaning facilities that cares about the customers, the clothes the environment. We have come across some dry-cleaners who pretend to be organic and safe, however, you can find that the solvents they use are composed of Formaldehyde, petroleum based or harsh chemicals that are carcinogenic.

At OXXO, there is always room for improvement and innovation. We think outside the box, we go overseas to find the answers we cannot find at home, we think differently, we plan, we develop and we conquer.

OXXO Care Cleaner is a company that was fueled with passion back in 2001 and up to this date it is driven by Winners with a common goal: Success.

Stay tuned and discover what took us to where we are, how our quality and convenience promise is revolutionizing the dry cleaning industry and how we turned regular Dry Cleaners into a CARE CLEANERS.

Bring More Color To Your Life


As summer approaches a few of us are thinking about the extra weight we’re carrying and we do not want to expose, but the only reason to loose weight shouldn’t just be to get into our bathing suits. Engaging in some physical activity and eating healthy is part of a lifestyle we should adopt no matter what season it is.

Today I’d like to share with you some tips to not only loose weight and look better but also to live longer. I do not want to get too radical here, but I’ll share this small but powerful piece of information with you; there are many things in life we can live without, but if we do not eat fruits and vegetables we will die, that, is the bottom line. Of course it is needles to say that we only need to be alive to die, but at least we would like to make our journey as pleasant and healthy as we can while we’re here.

The importance of eating a colorful and fresh diet is often overlooked, a variety of fruits and vegetables can bring energy, health, vitality and happiness to your life. Green vegetables are definitely at the top of our food chart for nutrition, I am one to believe that if you throw us in a jungle full fruits and vegetable trees, of course unless we happen to encounter lions, tigers and all the other wild animals we can get eaten by, we will manage to be the healthiest we could ever be.

Nature really does carry everything we need in life, and the more we have distorted it to fit our busy lifestyles, the more we have lost its natural value. Eating a plant based diet can not only prevent diabetes, stroke, heart disease and lots more, but it can also supplement all the nutrition you need. If you are having a hard time recognizing what is healthy for you, look at it this way, everything that comes from earth and nature and what has been manipulated the least by humans is definitely the best for you. Nature really is perfect, a diet full of assorted fruits, vegetables, legumes, beans, nuts and seeds has the power to gain you a few more years of life, no kidding.

Here are some tips that will help you bring more color to your plate:

  • Keep your fruits and veggies out where you can see them, the more you see them the more you’ll want to eat them.
  • Make sure you eat them in every meal, mainly vegetables should always be a significant portion of your every meal.
  • Explore the produce section of your supermarket or even better try your local farmer’s market and try a new fruit and vegetable every time, trust me there is enough variety for you to explore for quite a while.
  • Don’t be afraid to let fruits and veggies take center stage on your plate, soups and salads are one of the easiest and healthiest meal you can have.

I hope these tips are of help to you and your loved ones, remember that the key is to eat a big variety in order to get all the nutrients you need and one more thing, we know you love those french fries but according to the healthy eating pyramid, created by the Department of Nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, potatoes are not counted as a vegetable, since they are mostly starch and should be used sparingly.
