Change Of Career For Successful Beverley Business Owner Who is to Hang Up Her Gloves

A successful business owner is planning to ‘hang up her gloves’ after calling time on her oven valeting career, after 5 successful years, to concentrate on her other business.

The demand for specialist oven cleaning services is increasing as domestic appliances become important statement pieces for smart kitchens, and yet cleaning the oven still remains the most hated household chore!

Jenny Fothergill, owner of Ovenu (Beverley), is now on the lookout for a local man or woman who would like to take over this successful business.

It’s satisfying work for a fit, active person of any age and background. It’s a simple but effective business. The key to enjoying any work is job satisfaction – and this business can be hugely satisfying!

Could Ovenu (Beverley) be the right business for you? It’s a simple and profitable franchise opportunity. No experience is required as full training will be given from this nationally recognised, market leading franchise, established for over 20 years. You can work for yourself, but with the support of an established, successful organisation. It’s an excellent opportunity if you don’t want to make the initial mistakes or take the risks that most starting in business do. You have a guarantee of a successful business from day one.

Jenny is one of the few women franchisees within the Ovenu network, and started cleaning ovens in the Beverley area in 2010. Since then, Jenny has cleaned more than 1,500 ovens, with 60% of her business now coming from recommendations and repeat customers.

Ovenu is a franchise network made up of more than 100 businesses owned by men and women working throughout the UK.

Jenny said:

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the past 5 years and I am delighted to have seen the business grow over this period. Being my own boss allowed me to tailor my weekly schedule to suit my work/life balance.”

“With an Ovenu business, I haven’t needed a business premises or support staff, so overheads are low. I visit people in their own home. My clients are delighted to see me, and even more delighted when I have completed working my magic on their ovens… so happy that they recommend me to friends and neighbours.”

“I’m going to miss visiting my lovely customers and not cleaning ovens anymore, but it has been an absolute pleasure to serve my customers over the past 5 years, many of whom I have visited several times and I have got to know well. I would like to thank them for their support and loyalty.”

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 extractor in immaculate condition.

Prior to starting out in this business, Jenny achieved a law degree as a mature student whilst being employed, and over the last couple of years has also been building a business as APS, legal advisor specialising in Wills, Powers of Attorney and Probate. She will be continuing to clean ovens until the business can be handed over to a suitable new owner.
