Ian Keddie joined Oven Wizards in July 2005

Ian Keddie, owner of Oven Wizards Dartford, joined the network back in July 2005 and he has renewed his Franchise Agreement for a further five years.

Oven Wizards - Ian KeddieThis is what Ian had to say about his journey so far

The reason I chose Oven Wizards was that it was a flexible Franchise. There is a flat monthly fee and I don’t have to purchase all my products from their suppliers.

Why have you renewed your Oven Wizards contract for a further 5 years?

I chose to renew my agreement because my business is going so well and I wish to continue to grow my business and provide a stable future for myself and my family

When I first started the initial training wasn’t very good. Since that time John and Mark, owners of Oven Wizards, have improved the training significantly. I have personally trained a large number of the new starters myself. On-going support is excellent now, a mix of face to face, phone and e mail. The biggest challenge I had, back in 2005, was to build an initial client base. This has now changed with all the new developments John and Mark have brought in which includes press coverage, supermarket launches and a strong internet presence.

Are you achieving what you expected to achieve?

Yes, most definitely, I now have two vans on the road and we are normally fully booked each week. I am regularly booked up two weeks in advance.

Ian’s top tip for anyone thinking about buying his or her first Franchise

Make sure you research the Franchise market, speak to the franchisor and as many Franchisees as possible.

Mark Abbott, Managing Director and business owner of Oven Wizards said:
"It is great to see that Ian has renewed his agreement for a further 5 years. He is a valuable member of our franchise community. Whilst building his own successful multi van oven cleaning business, under the Oven Wizards brand name, he has also made a positive contribution by helping other Oven Wizards Franchisees, including delivering initial training for them".

Mark went on to say:
"We are really pleased that someone like Ian has chosen to renew, at the end of this term he will have been with us for 15 years. It underlines the great overall package we are delivering to our Franchisees, including our hands on support".
