David Tomlinson from Oven Wizards in Tynedale & Newcastle loves the flexibility and appreciates the excellent support:
I have completed over 3 years of trading and it has been very challenging but also very successful. I am ahead of my initial plan, and I have cleaned hundreds of ovens, hobs and extractors.
I started my franchise in November 2011 after being made redundant twice in 12 months. Along with my wife, I came to the conclusion that we should look at going self-employed. We looked at various franchises and came across Oven Wizards, I contacted Mark Abbott and John Graham, who jointly own and run Oven Wizards, and the rest, as they say, is history.
After a phone call, a meeting was promptly arranged. We decided to go ahead with one stipulation which was that I wanted to start trading before the end of 2011 to take advantage of the pre- Christmas rush.
Mark and John worked very effectively to get me up and running and by November 21st, I was trading after a successful launch at a local supermarket.
The two weeks hands-on technical training was very in-depth and gave me great confidence to go out on my own. The business training and development was extremely informative and useful.
Mark and John are always on hand, along with any other members of the Wizards’ community, should you need advice and support.
When you become self-employed you are THE BOSS and you need to work hard to be successful. With much leaflet dropping, local advertising and all the other business development techniques I picked up in the training, the work started coming in. I am now always busy and because of the great service we provide I get lots of referrals from customers’ family and friends.
My experience with customers is to treat them with respect, be courteous, friendly and put them at ease, be confident and always, always, always be professional.
Do a good job and always clean up after you’ve finished and believe me the word will spread.
Yes, there is competition out there but if you follow the Oven Wizards’ model, you will see there is plenty of business to be had.
My franchise gives me the flexibility to work 7 days a week or 4-5 days a week and you will soon find the phone never stops ringing.
In terms of great value and support I believe Oven Wizards is THE BEST franchise available on the market.

I joined Oven Wizards as a Franchisee in 2004 aged just 19, having been employed as a Supermarket Retail Manager. I invested in the Franchise and was so impressed with the company that I bought another van. My future looks brilliant!James Booker, Maidstone Franchisee
