Stephen Leaver Runs Oven Wizards Tamworth

Stephen loves working for himself and meeting lots of people.

Oven Wizards | Stephen LeaverI decided to start looking into a franchise business in the spring of 2012 as I had been working in a warehouse for 5 years and decided it was time for a change and to start a new path in my life. I still felt I needed some support in this so a franchise was the right way forward.

I have been running my Oven Wizards business in the Tamworth area for over 3 years now.

I looked into 3 different franchise companies and Oven Wizards was the one which responded with more positive prospects for me. I had numerous telephone conversations with Mark Abbott and then a face to face meeting was arranged to discuss matters further with Mark and his business partner, John Graham.

In return for my investment I received a comprehensive package to get me fully up and running. My initial training was for 2 weeks, the first week with a senior technician and the second week with an established Oven Wizard franchisee. Business planning/development training was provided on a one to one basis by the franchisors. Ongoing support includes six monthly meetings, an annual conference, an online forum and regular contact from the business owners/directors.

A recognised brand has helped my business, from the launch to the continued growth I have experienced over the last few years. It is very important as I want people to know they can trust Oven Wizards to do the right job so I get recommended and repeat work comes in.

I’ve got to say I do love the work I do and count myself very lucky I’m in this industry as there’s no better feeling than working for myself. I’m very much customer friendly and I think this shows in every day work. Young or old I feel at ease in everybody’s company, which helps me enjoy my working week. The most satisfying part of the job is being out and about meeting new and old customers and of course turning dirty ovens into sparkly new ones.

My busiest months have been October, November and December so far, but as my business is still growing, I’m becoming busy all year round. At the moment I work every Saturday and I have taken on my sister on a part time basis.

As I have done in previous years my plan is to continue to double my business each year and to keep growing in what is a massive market.

My recommendation to anyone thinking of coming into this market and joining Oven Wizards is that you will need to motivate yourself, be driven, but most of all love working with the public as this job is all about our customers.
