Ovenu, the UK’s leading oven valeting franchise, has welcomed three new franchisees to its growing network.
The Wokingham, Berkshire-headquartered company has extended its geographical reach with new franchisees taking up territories in Aylesbury, Bicester and Banbury, as well as Stonehaven.
Former office worker Kerry Corney has joined as the Ovenu franchisee for Aylesbury, having purchased the franchise from previous owner Liam Flynn, while Michael Gambrill, a former Pets at Home area manager, has started out as the business owner of the Bicester and Banbury territory.
Ross Walker, who enjoyed an 18-year career in the offshore industry, completes the hat-trick of new franchisees as owner of the Stonehaven franchise, taking the number of Ovenu territories operating throughout the UK to over the 100 mark.
Ovenu has grown to become the most highly reviewed oven valeting franchise in the UK, namely through its collaboration with the TRUSTist platform, and operates franchises internationally, including in Australia & New Zealand
Rik Hellewell, Managing Director and Founder of Ovenu, said: “Our franchise network has continued to grow strongly over the last few years, and I am delighted to welcome our latest cohort of franchisees to our UK operation. Kerry, Michael and Ross each come from varied backgrounds, but with the same drive and determination to succeed.
“They are ideal fits and personalities for our tried and tested Ovenu business model, and I’d like to wish them all the very best as they begin their journeys into self-employment.”
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 safe, non-caustic products to clean the oven parts. The whole process takes around three to four hours and leaves the oven, hob and exterior in immaculate condition.
