About Ovenclean

Company Overview

Launched in 1992, Ovenclean is the original and one of the most successful oven cleaning services in the UK, providing a professional domestic oven cleaning service to thousands of satisfied households across the country! Ovenclean is part of Franchise Brands plc. Franchise Brands is a group of international multi-brand franchisors with a combined network of over 400 franchisees in 12 countries, but predominantly in the UK. 

Franchise Overview

Ovenclean is the longest-established oven cleaning franchise in the UK, providing specialist oven cleaning services to this massive marketplace. The Ovenclean franchise model has been developed to suit individual lifestyles and business aspirations.

Ovenclean specialists use a unique cleaning system, exclusive to Ovenclean, which has been expertly developed and perfected over 20 years of experience. Operating from professionally liveried vehicles, customised into fully-equipped mobile workshops, specialists are able to provide high quality cleans to a range of kitchen appliances in a vast, virtually untapped marketplace.

Operating from professionally liveried, fully-equipped vans, franchisees benefit from low overheads and the flexibility to dictate working hours, enabling them to retain control over their work/life balance. As a result, the business is easy to learn, simple to manage and can deliver high profitability and an independent lifestyle.

Daily Life of a Franchisee

A typical day as a franchisee involves arranging and attending appointments at customers’ homes to carry out cleans, and securing new business through supported marketing and business development. The Ovenclean system is so effective that it engenders tremendous customer satisfaction, and it is this customer loyalty that invariably generates high levels of recommendations – so much so that word of mouth referrals become a strategic part of the Ovenclean operations, resulting in a rapidly growing business.

Ovenclean Case studies

  • Clive and Clare Pearson

    Ovenclean: Clive and Clare Pearson

    Clare’s high powered job in publishing involved a long commute into London every day and Clive’s work in sales often took him away from home at evenings and weekends. Having children made them realise that it was time to re-evaluate their priorities.

  • Steven and Estelle Sykes

    Ovenclean: Steven and Estelle Sykes

    Both Steven Sykes and Estelle Robertson had very successful careers, but they decided that they wanted a better work life balance. Although they have faced some challenges, 18 months down the line Steven and Estelle are thoroughly enjoying the benefits of owning their own business and are seeing huge demand for their service!

  • Graham Kerridge

    Ovenclean: Graham Kerridge

    After 16 years working in the Prison service, in September 2013, Graham Kerridge made the huge decision that it was time for a career and a lifestyle change – he took the opportunity to invest in an Ovenclean franchise and hasn’t looked back since!
