With higher than ever food hygiene standards in commercial kitchens throughout the UK, the British public are not the only ones turning to cleaning services to keep their ovens spotless.
According to the British Cleaning Council, cleaning businesses in general add over £24 billion to the UK economy and represent one of the biggest employment groups with a workforce of 700,000 people.
The fast growing range of businesses in the cleaning industry include both domestic and commercial oven cleaning firms. They range from sole traders providing a home owner service in their local area, to larger enterprises with vehicles, a team of staff and clients across a wide geographical area. There are substantial contracts available too, for restaurants, hospitals and schools who need to be scrupulous in their cleaning.
A passion for getting ovens squeaky clean is a great start, but there is a lot more to running an oven cleaning business than many people imagine. Which is why for many new business start ups in this sector, operating as part of a franchise is an excellent option.
For one thing, training and insurance are vital, as you will be dealing with strong chemicals, as well as gas and electrical equipment. Health & Safety and indemnity considerations are complex. Mistakes can be costly. The support of a franchiser can guide and support you through all this. Plus, carrying the branding of an established oven cleaning company can help build trust – and secure contracts – in those crucial first few months.
As oven cleaning services lend themselves easily to franchise packages, you have a wide range to choose from. This includes leading brands such as Oven Clean, Oven Wizards and Oven Gleamers. The Ovenu franchise is a model that has secured partnerships across the world. Businesses such as Bright & Beautiful have also featured in the national press, as this oven cleaning franchiser only works with Eco-friendly cleaning products.
