Oven Cleaning Franchise FAQs

Is oven cleaning a profitable business?

Oven cleaning is a profitable business when done correctly. Like any other business, it’s important that the correct processes are in place in order to ensure that new clients are acquired and successfully converted into satisfied customers that return year after year. Most importantly, the quality of work must be consistently high in order for the business to become profitable.

How much does an oven cleaner earn?

Many oven cleaners have earned well over £60,000 per year whilst owning a franchise with us. Making this kind of money as an oven cleaner is a realistic expectation, but don’t underestimate the hard work and resilience that is required to do so. All our franchisees have the opportunity to earn this kind of money with their businesses.

Is a cleaning franchise a good investment?

A cleaning franchise is a good investment for a range of people who are up to the task of running their own business. Your investment pays for the tools, training and support from the franchisor, but you are still required to put in the time and effort to make your business a success and reap the rewards of that initial investment.

How much does a cleaning franchise cost?

Our cleaning franchise costs £12,400 + VAT for a Foundation Franchise Opportunity which includes a territory of over 30,000 homes. The Foundation Plus package starts at £17,450 + VAT (60,001 – 100,000 homes).

Is professional oven cleaning worth it?

Professional oven cleaning is worth it for those people who are capable of managing their own diary and getting their hands dirty on a daily basis. The initial investment is small, especially when compared to other franchise opportunities, and can provide you with a profitable business that you can reap the dividends from for years to come.

What do professional oven cleaners use to clean ovens?

Professional oven cleaners use patented oven cleaning products, tools and equipment to valet ovens efficiently. Our franchisees are given access to tried and tested methods that get the job done in the most effective means possible, giving them a clear advantage over competitors who don’t have the same infrastructure to rely on.

How long does it take to train as an oven cleaner?

Our oven cleaning training course takes 5 days. This includes 1 day dedicated to managing the business, followed by 2 days spent at our in-house training facility.
