Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning Once Again Ranked Among America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies – the Inc. 5000

Carpet cleaning franchise appears on the Inc. 5000 for the third time;

Ranks No. 4816 on the 2019 list

LAKEWOOD, Colo. – Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning (, one of the nation’s fastest-growing carpet cleaning franchise companies, has once again been named to Inc. magazine’s annual Inc. 5000 list. This is one of the most prestigious rankings of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies.

Ranked No. 4816 with a three-year revenue growth of 58 percent, this marks Oxi Fresh’s third appearance on the list since 2011. The recognition puts the Denver-based franchise in the company of other well-known honorees like Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, LinkedIn, Zillow, and others.

“The Inc. 5000 list has become the hallmark of entrepreneurial success for nearly 40 years,” said Oxi Fresh founder and CEO, Jonathan Barnett ( “To be recognized not once, but multiple times on this prestigious list is yet another defining moment for our growing brand. Of course, this wouldn’t be possible without the passion and hard work of our franchisees. They continue to provide our customers with the highest-quality carpet cleaning experience every single day.”

Barnett founded the carpet cleaning franchise in 2006. Just 26-years-old at the time, he saw an opportunity to handle jobs more efficiently and sustainably than other companies were doing. So, he created an innovative and environmentally-friendly carpet cleaning company. Their system just needs two gallons of water to clean a home – as opposed to the 40-50 gallons that other carpet cleaners use. This enables carpets to dry in just about one hour, far less than the 12-24 hours that other cleaners require.

The carpet cleaning franchise started with one location in Denver, but in less than six months the company had expanded to 17 locations in five states. Today, the business has grown extraordinarily fast to nearly 400 locations throughout the United States and Canada. They’ve also completed nearly one million jobs and saved around 35 million gallons of water with their proprietary cleaning method.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief, James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
