Oven Wizards has been bringing grubby ovens back to life since 2004, but 2020 marks the tenth anniversary of ownership by Mark Abbott and John Graham. Set up as a franchise opportunity, the last ten years have seen the business grow significantly, with the company supporting 80 vans over 60 territories. They’ve been full members of the British Franchise Association for over five years now and are proud of the achievements enjoyed by their franchisees.
Mark Abbott, the managing director, said: “We are thoroughly enjoying sharing our business ethos with our new franchisees and it is great to see them doing so well in their own territories. We are now getting good national coverage for Oven Wizards, but we still have areas available for hard-working individuals who want to run their own businesses.”
The Oven Wizards company vision is “To build an enduring reputation as the U.K.’s most trusted oven cleaning company in the eyes of our franchisees, their customers and our trading partners.”
With such a strong focus on building a loyal body of franchisees, it’s no wonder they have many happy customers. The fact that original franchisees have renewed their franchise agreements and are still trading as Oven Wizards highlights the level of commitment the company has for supporting its franchise owners.
The possibilities for growth are set out from the start, with large territories offering opportunities for one van operations as well as scope for anyone seeking to build a multi-van enterprise. Franchisees enjoy flexible working hours, an improved work-life balance and the pleasure of being part of a business that listens to its team. A fixed monthly management fee also means franchise owners know that the more they earn, the more they keep.
James Booker, one of the original Oven Wizards and now an operator of a multi-van franchise, said: “I looked at many franchises before choosing Oven Wizards and I know without a doubt that I made the right choice. My Oven Wizards business has given me the work-life balance that my previous job never did. Working hard reaps its rewards but I still have the flexibility to take time to enjoy life.”
Building a team of motivated, skilled and happy business owners means the second part of Oven Wizards’ vision comes naturally. A quick glance over any review site shows countless positive customer comments, brimming with phrases like “it looks brand new” and “the service was excellent from the moment I opened the door”. Such outstanding feedback means masses of repeat business, so Oven Wizards will continue to bring its particular brand of magic to homes across the country for many years to come.
