#Ovenclean Is Sizzling Hot!

National franchisor Ovenclean is ‘sizzling hot’ this year, with new customer enquiries up 20% year to date, on last year’s figures.

Ovenclean Chief Executive Julian Minwalla comments, “Ovenclean has been bucking the trend during this recession, with franchise owners reporting higher than ever demand for their services. As awareness of professional oven cleaning grows, customers are increasingly viewing the Ovenclean service as a small luxury they simply can’t do without.”

Ovenclean franchise owners enjoy a massive potential marketplace. Every household has an oven, every oven has to be cleaned regularly and research shows that virtually everyone hates cleaning their oven. Add to that increasingly busy lives, where both partners usually work and free time is precious, together with an ageing population in need of support to cope with physically demanding chores and the result is a rapidly growing demand for a professional oven cleaning service.

This demand, together with the advantage of low overheads, low operating costs and the flexibility to dictate working hours, has also led to an upsurge in interest in the Ovenclean franchise; accordingly, applications from new franchise owners are up substantially this year.

Julian Minwalla continues, “The beauty of the Ovenclean business model is its simplicity – it is easy to learn, straightforward to manage, and once customers have experienced the astonishing results of a professional oven clean, they never look back, using the service regularly and usually recommending it to their friends – a ‘win-win’ situation for any new business!”

He adds: “For some people this relatively stress-free existence is ideal, however for others a good living and the satisfaction that comes from providing an excellent service is just the beginning. Although happy to start off being hands-on, some look to build a management franchise, with a fleet of vehicles and a team of well trained staff. The domestic oven cleaning marketplace lends itself well to such ambitious people and the Ovenclean network includes a number of multi-vehicle operations.”

Ovenclean is the longest established and most successful domestic and commercial oven cleaning franchise in the UK, providing specialist oven cleaning services to a large, virtually untapped marketplace, including hotels, schools and lettings agencies.

Franchise owners operate from professionally liveried vans and so benefit from low overheads and high flexibility. The top quality, powerful yet eco-friendly Ovenclean product range, exclusive to franchise owners, effectively cleans ovens and hobs, Agas, ranges and barbecues, restoring them to pristine condition within a matter of a few hours.

The proven business model is easy to learn, simple to manage and delivers a high earning, flexible lifestyle, with the potential to expand into a multi-van operation.
