Ovenu has helped hundreds of entrepreneurial-minded people build a profitable oven cleaning business that provides an incredibly competitive income and the freedom of organising their own working week, not to mention the opportunity to expand into wider territories.

Exclusive Access To Equipment & Products That Work

The key to success for any service business is an efficient process that can be replicated across all types of homes and appliances. Whilst it’s true that anyone can have a go at cleaning an oven themselves, attempting to do so without the right tools and products can be a daunting task.

We’ve spent years developing our processes and have poured our own resources into equipping our franchisees with the best products and tools in the business, so that they can get their job done quicker, safer and to a significantly higher standard than the competition.

Independent oven cleaners often make do with store-shelf domestic cleaning products, or rely on products containing caustic soda to get the job done. Meanwhile, all our franchisees get access to our exclusive eco-friendly oven cleaning products including our Ovenu Tank Mix Powder, Liquid Degreaser and our Oven Cleaner and Carbon Remover.

Learn Our Tried & Tested Oven Cleaning Process

Our hygiene grade equipment, tools and eco-friendly cleaning products are only one piece of the puzzle. When you become an Ovenu franchisee, you’ll also benefit from excellent hands-on training, giving you the time and experience that other newcomers to the industry can only dream of!

Whilst there are plenty of independent oven cleaning services who have spent years developing their own processes, we’ve got the benefit of time and experience on our side. Our 5-day training course is designed to pass that priceless experience onto you.

You’ll spend time training at our in-house Training Facility, where you’ll be shown over 80 different types of ovens, before hitting the road with a working franchisee who’ll give you valuable on-the-job experience.

A Proven Business Plan That Scales With You

One problem that new business owners can come up against is determining how far they’re willing to travel in order to complete a job.

When you set up a local service area business, the temptation can be to cast the net as wide as possible in order to get the ball rolling. Unfortunately, this can lead to excessive time spent on the road, impacting your ability to fit multiple jobs into your schedule. This can lead to a frustrating feeling of taking one step forward and two steps back.

All Ovenu franchisees are handed a dedicated territory of 30,000 homes. We use geo-demographic information, such as income levels and property types to ensure that you have the same opportunity to reach new customers as every other franchisee.

Having a firm grasp on your territory means that you can spend less time on the road and more time on the job earning money. Having a set territory also means that you’ll benefit from hyper-targeted digital advertising, ensuring that your new business gets in front of the people in your area who are searching for oven cleaning.

Plug Into Advanced Sales & Marketing Systems

It should go without saying that the world of marketing has changed a lot since Ovenu was established in 1994. We’ve made sure to keep abreast of the constantly evolving digital marketing landscape, so that all our franchisees can stay one step ahead of their local competitors.

Digital marketing is a cornerstone of so many businesses, however starting from scratch can be a daunting task for many independent businesses. Becoming an Ovenu franchisee gives you instant access to our proven digital marketing strategies and systems that have provided over 100 franchisees with the foundation for their success … it’s a proven ‘plug & play’ system.

All Ovenu franchisees are given an optimised page on our national website, which comes complete with a Google map and Trustist review widgets, displaying reviews from your happy customers and an overall rating. We’ve got a fantastic track record with generating leads for our franchisees, with our website generating over 400 enquiries per week for franchisees across the UK!

FAQs

When Should You Start Planning Your Oven Cleaning Business?

All businesses should be well planned, documented and forecasted before any trading is commenced; oven cleaning service companies are certainly no exception. They should have a sturdy business plan in place that is simple to understand, contain all of the right information, be segmented into workable ‘bite-sized’ chunks and the financial section ought to show profits well before the working capital runs dry.

There should be clearly defined strategies and contingency measures in place to cover any and all eventualities during the lifespan of the business, which will involve calculating the cost of insuring the business. And where there is more than one person involved in the business, a good plan will have clearly defined roles for all concerned from day one through to any proposed expansion, right along to the point where the business is sold or closed.

Why Have An Oven Cleaning Business Plan?

Having a well-produced business plan for an oven cleaning franchise before getting started can help to secure any lending or borrowing that could be needed to get the business off the ground.

There aren’t many (if any) lenders who will hand over a business loan without seeing how their money is going to be repaid and how long this might take. And it’s worth noting that, if loans or other borrowing are needed, then the lowest rates of interest and more favourable terms will generally be charged by the more savvy lenders, who’ll have a keen eye for detail when going through a business plan.

But it isn’t just about the all-important business finances. A clear business plan can help to arrange loose thoughts and ideas into some semblance of order so that you can clearly see the goals and targets that you’ve set for your oven cleaning business over the years.

A well-drafted plan will form the framework of your business so that you can refer back to it whenever you need to remind yourself of what progress you’re making and the targets you set.

What information do you need in an oven cleaning business plan?

At its core, your business plan should set out how you intend to run your business, the projected milestones ahead, who the business will include (as well as what role they’ll play) and how the financial side will be managed. There are no hard rules on how to structure a business plan, but often it helps to open with an executive summary that quickly sums up the purpose of your business, who you’ll be serving, your team and the highlights of your financial forecast. Once you’ve laid out the basics you can start going into the kind of close detail that will convince a bank or lender to give you the backing you’ll need to get started.

Your completed oven cleaning business plan should show that you’ve considered how your business fits into the overall market you’re entering, as well as the segment of the market you’ll be targeting. It’s also wise to show that you’ve considered how you might grow in the future and show that you’ve got a plan in place for handling your sales and marketing. Most importantly, you should be able to show that you have a sound financial plan which takes into account all your expenses and projected sales; you need to prove that your oven cleaning business will make money.

What are the benefits of having an oven cleaning business plan?

Here’s a quick reminder of why having an oven cleaning business plan in place so important:

  • It can help you if any lending or borrowing is needed.
  • Your business objectives and strategies are clearly defined and written down.
  • You can keep track of your business goals and targets.
  • You can quickly identify times to ask for help.
  • Learn how to be pro-active rather than reactive.
  • Last but by no means least – shows you how to make money by design rather than by accident!
