Ovenclean celebrates a decade of success

With Ovenclean, you can be assured of the highest standard of training and ongoing business support, backed by a team with a long and successful history in franchise development.
Ovenclean has been reflecting back on a successful 10 years of franchising.
Ovenclean’s parent company, Franchise Brands plc, has been celebrating 10 years of success with the UK’s original oven cleaning franchise.
Tim Harris, Managing Director of Ovenclean, expressed the company’s delight at a decade of success.
“Since acquiring the franchise back in 2008, we’ve been able to help so many franchisees from all different walks of life with our tried and tested business model.”
Reflecting back on the important milestones, Harris highlighted memorable moments such as when the oven cleaning franchise was accepted as a full member of the prestigious British Franchise Association (BFA) in 2015.
“[It] was a great milestone for us. We’ve worked hard to ensure new and existing franchisees have the best support possible to run their own successful oven cleaning business, and the acknowledgement by the BFA confirmed that we are doing a great job.”
Head of Marketing, Ella Pugh, explained how the brand had adapted and changed over the years to ensure it’s always stayed at the top of its industry.
“To run a business like Ovenclean you need to be able to adapt and move with the times. Our marketing strategy has changed so much in the last 10 years, moving from mainly offline activity, to investing in a high-profile TV campaign, and now over 70% of the leads generated from national marketing come from digital sources.”
Franchisee Owen Rowlands also shared his experience of building his business with Ovenclean. He had worked in highway construction and maintenance for more than 15 years, but felt trapped in the industry as he didn’t have any other experience. However, after discovering Ovenclean he took the opportunity as a way to escape and says that investing in the franchise has changed his life so much.
“Since starting my Ovenclean journey, my life has been stress-free with nobody on my case, and I earn more money! Each month, turnover gets better and better. I’m never resentful about having to go to work in the morning and that makes a huge difference. We spend the majority of our time working, so it’s no good if you’re miserable doing it!”
Ovenclean’s 100th franchisee James Arthur agreed, saying that he “couldn’t be happier” and is enjoying the financial benefits to being his own boss. He spoke about the benefits he’s found since joining the franchise.
“I really enjoy the flexibility it offers as we are now able to visit our holiday home in Pembrokeshire more often, my blood pressure has gone down, I love being out and about meeting new people every day, and I’ve even lost half a stone!”
