OXXO Care Cleaners, a unique concept of Dry Cleaning offers:
- An environmentally-safe cleaning service. People are continuously looking for ways to make their lifestyles easier to the environment. OXXO's Green Eco-friendly solvent provides cost-effective garment care that does not harm customer, the environment, employees and, of course, the garments.
- The highest quality. Not only does traditional steam pressing compromise air quality in and outside the dry cleaning facility, it shortens the lifespan of clothes. All OXXO's garments are hand finished providing a beautiful look and a comfortable feel.
- The convenience of a 24/7 service. At drop-off using the OXXO's provides pouch, customers drop their garments through the secure kiosk door. At pick-up, customers use their OXXO's magnetic card and their finished garments are delivered through the automatic kiosk door.
Our commitment to excellence is our promise to customers and that commitment ensures our success. The traditional garment cleaning business in the US lingers in the “Mom & Pop” sector and lacks innovation. With the elimination of hazardous chemicals and with the convenience of a 24/7 service, OXXO is a successful venture for successful entrepreneurs.
Back in 2001 OXXO's President Mr. Salomon Mishaan visited some European countries searching for a revolutionary concept to be franchised in the United States. In Spain, we found OXXO and we liked the open work area and the hand iron finishing with its consequent excellent quality. Then in Italy, we found the most advanced technology to provide a first class service through a unique pick-up system that will allow our customers to pick-up their garments by themselves 24 hours a day. Finally, and taking into account the evolution of the green movement in the US, we found a silicon-based solvent, which is completely eco-friendly and harmless to the environment.
With these three characteristics, in 2003, OXXO Care Cleaners became the most environmentally safe and technologically advanced dry cleaner franchise in the United States.
