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, and a 5K benefiting United Nations Women, with donations to Kids in Distress.
Having sold over 50 franchises stores to date, Salomon Mishaan, Founder & CEO, has developed winning strategies for the business, its franchisees and the communities in which OXXO operates.
