Cleaning, Commercial Cleaning, Residential Cleaning
The OvenGleamers franchise provides professional appliance cleaning services, focusing on cleaning cookers, AGA cookers, barbeques and extractor fans. OvenGleamers also provides specialist services including refrigerator cleaning, stainless steel restoration and end of tenancy cleaning.
The company offers services primarily for the domestic market, as well as care homes, student lets, tenanted homes and schools.
Established in 2004 as a van-based service, the company has grown into a national franchise and is a member of the British Institute of Cleaning Science. By emphasising a high standard of excellence, OvenGleamers has won a positive reputation from customers, and has established significant brand loyalty, making this a great franchise to start a business with.
The OvenGleamers franchise is based in North Somerset, in England.
To start your own OvenGleamers franchise, you’ll require an initial investment of £16,995, excluding VAT, for a standard franchise package. You will also need to make an £18,000 deposit for a van.
Funding support may be available from third parties, including most major high street banks.
Territories are available across the UK. Franchisees receive an exclusive, protected territory for their franchise.
It’s not necessary to have any industry experience before starting your own franchise with OvenGleamers; in fact, the founders embrace the opportunity for would-be franchisees to approach the business with a fresh start, if they do not have a background in the field.
While it can be helpful to have some business understanding, the most important qualities to have are the drive and determination to be self-motivated, willingness to learn and succeed. The service involves driving extensively and can be quite a physically demanding job, so it is necessary to be fit, active and able to work hard.
OvenGleamers is a van-based franchise, and does not require a separate business premise to run the franchise from. As franchisees will be on the road extensively to visit customers, it can be a great opportunity for anyone who enjoys a varied and active role.
Franchisees begin their career with OvenGleamers with a two-week training course that covers all aspects of the business, including specialist training in how to provide all the franchise’s key services.
AGA cooker-specific training is also included, to give franchisees a competitive edge over other cleaning providers.
The course is broken down into a seven-day onsite training at the OvenGleamers head office site, covering practical cleaning skills and methodologies, as well as spending time on the road with existing franchisees, to shadow and assist. Following this, franchisees then undergo a three-day business training module, which encompasses marketing, sales and business operations.
After training, franchisees have access to phone and online support through the OvenGleamers Academy Training website, with training videos and helpful guides. The company also provide marketing support, as well as all the materials needed to establish your business including a complete operational manual, branded advertising materials, premium cleaning products and equipment, including their electric heated oven cleaning dip tank, which helps franchisees to provide a fast, efficient service.
Once training is completed, OvenGleamers helps to launch all franchisees in their local territories, with a tailored business launch in the area, as well as online marketing.
Franchisees are set up with access to 60,000 potential customers, and a fully set up van to start their business.
OvenGleamers provide extensive support after training to ensure franchisees enjoy a successful career with the business, by helping find bookings and continued customers. All franchisees are set up on the company’s cloud-based booking schedule, which is connected to the main head office system.
The OvenGleamers franchise manages a lot of bookings and customer service administration through its main call centre in Bristol, which processes customer calls, quotations and other administration, and appointments are scheduled in for franchisees according to their online calendar and availability. This frees up the need to spend time on providing quotations and other admin, allowing you to fit in more customers, and win more jobs.
OvenGleamers also provides continued training and mentorship to all franchisees, with ongoing technical support, online training programmes and quarterly training meetups. As your business grows and is ready to expand, they also provide support on how to train and employ others, improve marketing and gain new customers directly.
As a well established company in the industry with a strong reputation, potential franchisees benefit from being part of a trusted brand. The cleaning industry is a continually growing and high value one across the UK, valued over £5.6bn.
With the opportunity to work across a range of customers, including both domestic and commercial premises, franchisees can enjoy a large market, with the ability to choose a particular sector or niche they may prefer to target.
Starting an OvenGleamers franchise can be a great business opportunity for anyone interested in running a business that offers flexibility, diversity and a varied work day. As the majority of the business involves being onsite with customers, with little time needed on administrative work, this can be a great role for anyone wanting an active role, that does not need long hours stuck in an office.
As bookings and customers are managed directly through the company’s head office and sent through to franchisees, you have the assurance of earning a regular income from the outset, without needing to spend a large effort on marketing and advertising.
