Jenny, originally from Surrey, moved to the area five years ago drawn to the friendly warmth of the region and in pursuit of a more content and relaxed lifestyle. She currently lives in Beverley with her 19 year old daughter Lydia and her partner James, who has a farming background and works within the agricultural sales sector.

After working for many years in administration and as a PA, Jenny, who most recently worked for a construction company within the marketing department, decided she needed a complete change.

Jenny realised she wanted to work for herself and be in control of her own business. With a confident and determined attitude, Jenny started looking at her options and finally invested in an Ovenu franchise as the first steps to begin building her own successful business.

Ovenu’s valeting process is popular with householders across the UK. Since 1994 Ovenu’s network of over 100 franchisees have cleaned more than one million ovens, microwaves, and barbeques.

Ovenu has attracted over 60,000 clients per year and its franchise model has been replicated across the globe including Europe, Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

The Ovenu valeting process involves dismantling key components of an oven such as the door, interior panels, fan and shelves and placing them into design-registered tank equipment, which uses non-caustic products to clean the oven parts.  The whole process takes around three hours and leaves the oven, hob and exterior in immaculate condition.

Jenny said: “I knew I needed a change and wanted to be my own boss. I also knew I had the drive to make a business successful, so I started looking at different ways I could take this on. I decided to choose Ovenu as it has a great reputation and is an extremely professional company.

“Ovenu is a well established company which offerd great support, especially in the developing stages of setting up the franchise.

“I now do something which I believe in and love seeing the results. I get job satisfaction from knowing how good the product and techniques used in the cleaning process are, and by seeing how delighted the clients are with their newly cleaned ovens.

“In this current financial climate I feel it is essential that people get good value for money and the service supplied by Ovenu is definitely that.”

Managing Director of Ovenu, Rik Hellewell, said: “Jenny has grasped the franchise with both hands, she really believes in the product and the results that can be achieved for homeowners and their ovens.

“We are thrilled that Jenny is part of the Ovenu franchise and pleased she decided to make the leap and change her career. I know she will be able to take her business onwards and upwards”
