Oven Wizards was established in 2004 and has more than 40 franchisees across the UK. The franchisees provide a domestic oven cleaning service predominantly to householders but also to businesses. Being a van-based franchise, the business can be operated from home, enabling overheads to be kept to a minimum.
Hands-on support from the directors show you how to attract clients and provide the highest standards of customer service, ensuring excellent levels of repeat business.
Find out more about the business and franchising in this video interview with the directors of Oven Wizards.
Oven Wizards is operated by Mark Abbott and John Graham, pictured above.
Mark and John have successful banking careers on their CVs, both having been area directors for Barclays; more recently Mark has a successful track record in running a multi-van oven cleaning business in the Cotswolds.

Their aim is to build a nationwide, successful and profitable network of franchisees, based on mutual trust and partnership.

A two-day business builder course in your home, where we show you how to run your business and attract regular clients, is followed by a week in the Cotswolds where you will get hands-on experience of cleaning ovens in real clients' homes.
Then there's a further three days with an existing franchisee where you will continue to clean clients' ovens and also have the opportunity to learn how a successful franchisee runs their business.
Daily Life of a Franchisee
Predominately working with individual householders, you will be building new relationships through various marketing methods. Although you will not be ‘cold calling’, a positive attitude towards business development is required.
When fully up and running you will be cleaning approximately three ovens a day. Mostly, these will be in private houses and some small businesses with domestic appliances.
No premises are required as the business can be run from home.
