John Stewart Joined Ovenclean in 2013

Name: John Stewart

Location: West Cambridge

Ovenclean | John StewartJohn Stewart joined Ovenclean in 2013, after wanting to re-invent himself in a completely different career. 

"After working in a large clinical company for a number of years, I wanted something which was completely different. I happened to come across an advert in the Daily Mail for Ovenclean, so I decided to investigate further. I had cleaned ovens for my family before and really enjoyed the satisfaction of it being so clean at the end."

You don’t need any previous experience to invest in an Ovenclean franchise. There are many reasons as to why people decide to join the network, including the flexibility of the business model, fantastic job satisfaction and return on investment – there is the potential to earn a very good income.

"After researching the market and other franchises, Ovenclean was by far the best! The return on investment you get for the cost of the package is well worth it - including the Marketing support, brand name and support from Head Office and existing franchisees. The reputable brand name, training and guidance ultimately means there is far less risk than setting up alone!"

Franchisees receive 2 weeks of training with a business mentor, who is an existing franchisee. There is also a specialist team at Head Office to provide any technical, emotional and business support.

"There are definitely oven cleaning companies who do it cheaper, but at Ovenclean we are able to negotiate a higher price because the quality is so much better. We do a deep clean and full ‘MOT’ of the oven. Because of the fantastic quality, customers always come back to Ovenclean and are thrilled with the results.

You just need to get your name out there in your local area. Regular leafleting, advertising in local magazines, word-of-mouth and doing a great job are the main ways that I have grown my business."

We asked John if he felt that Ovenclean was the right decision for him, and what advice he would give to others:

"I would definitely recommend Ovenclean to a friend. It’s not at all easy, you need to go out and fight for it but because you are directly benefitting from your own hard work, you don’t mind!

It great to be in control of my own destiny, and I’ve become far more confident in my own abilities since joining Ovenclean. I only have one regret… I wish I’d done it sooner!"
