About Ovenu

Ovenu is a specialist, domestic oven cleaning and valeting service that provides a unique and 100% eco-friendly service to homes across the UK.

The market leading business - regularly referred to as the ‘cleanest and greenest’ - has extremely low overheads being van based and the brand has an enviable reputation with consumers, boasting a 5-star rating from over 42,000 reviews! Franchisees immediately benefit from the eye-catching, fully trademarked Ovenu branding along with a suite of online and offline promotional materials.

Additional benefit includes access to the Ovenu branded cleaning materials that are 100% safe, bio-degradable, ‘non everything’ and exclusive to Ovenu franchisees.

Ovenu was founded in 1994 and has been hugely successful since then offering a world class service to consumers and the most knowledgeable and experienced Head Office support team for franchisees to benefit from to establish and grow their locally based Ovenu business.

Franchisees looking to join the network will benefit from the ultimate ‘oven ready’ turnkey business with supplier offers and deals already in place with an unrivalled range of systems, methods and practices all in play. All of this being backed up by a superb CRM system that keeps everything neat, tidy and organised. This, in turn, leaves the franchisees free to run their business.

Couple all of this with three decades of knowledge, experience and expertise to draw on and there’s a recipe for success just waiting to be replicated.

How does the Ovenu franchise model work?

Following their induction training, Ovenu franchisees operate in generous yet sustainable exclusive territories throughout the UK and Australia. Franchisees set their own pricing strategy with Head Office support, book their own appointments and run their own electronic diaries via a unique, bespoke and tailor-made CRM system.

Clients pay the franchisees directly at the end of each job ensuring the business has positive cash-flow each and every day. In exchange for the ongoing help and support, franchisees pay a fixed monthly management fee along with a fixed fee for National Marketing. Having fixed fees makes the business finances easy to manage and account for.

The National Marketing, including occasional TV advertising, works in conjunction with any/all local advertising and promotions that the franchisees put in place themselves to produce the all-important sales leads and enquiries. This powerful blend has worked exceptionally well for three decades now and through many interesting and varied trading conditions.

What type of franchisee is Ovenu looking for?

Ovenu look to attract hard-working individuals and couples who want to excel in customer service and are keen to work hard, learn and follow a tried, tested and trusted route that will lead to business success.

Franchisees joining the Ovenu network quickly become part of a team ethic while maintaining a great deal of autonomy in their locally based, exclusive territory. The business is ideal for people from all walks of life who enjoy meeting people in their own homes and producing outstanding results with a cheerful smile while bringing some good old-fashioned pride in their work and customer service back into the world.

What training and support does Ovenu provide franchisees?

The Ovenu induction training is a full five day Monday to Friday course and includes bed and breakfast accommodation in Wokingham, Berkshire for franchisees who may have travelled a fair distance.

The course covers everything that franchisees need to know to start operating their local business within days of completing the course. All elements of running a business are covered along with learning how to produce outstanding results for clients when valeting their cooking appliances - restoring them to a ‘showroom shine’. Training is undertaken by highly skilled and experienced trainers.

During the training week, the franchisees have the distinctive Ovenu branding applied to their van and the interior is fitted-out with equipment, tools and supplies to get the franchisees off to a flying start.

On-going support is offered by the Head Office team. This team consists of the Ovenu founder, Rik Hellewell, his wife and three of their adult children along with retained experts in the fields of advertising, marketing, promotions, PR, digital strategy and franchisee recruitment. The whole team boasts the most in-depth knowledge and experience to be found anywhere in this lucrative cleaning industry sector.

Additional help and support is provided from the existing franchisee network via phone, email and social apps.

Does Ovenu charge franchisees any ongoing fees?

The initial investment into the Ovenu franchise is £12,400 plus VAT. This cost covers 100% of everything that’s needed to start the business and get it up and running in no time at all. There are no hidden extras and hard working franchisees can start to turn over in excess of £1,000 a week within their first month from leaving the Ovenu training course. Many franchisees increase this turnover to well over £1,200 a week in their second or third trading month by following the business plan. The initial investment can therefore be recouped within a very short time-frame.

Franchisees can choose to maintain an ‘owner/operator’ status or go on to build a multi-van territory and maybe run it as a management franchise.

What locations or territories is Ovenu looking to operate in?

There are currently over 45 new UK territories ready to be established along with a handful of existing areas up for sale.

What are the Ovenu franchise’s terms of agreement and renewal?

The initial agreement is a five year term with an automatic right to renew for a further three or five year term.

Over 75% of franchisees renew their agreement for a second, third, fourth or even fifth term.

How in demand are the services provided by Ovenu?

The UK cleaning industry is in good shape and growing year-on-year. And with every home being a potential customer for our specialist service, the opportunities are almost endless.

Demand for the Ovenu specialist service is growing and in periods of economic uncertainty, many people who may have been considering buying a new oven, turn to Ovenu to restore their appliances to a ‘showroom shine’ in favour of visiting the showroom itself.
