The sale of my franchise went a lot better than expected with the help of Oven Wizards.

 Rob Park owned and operated Oven Wizards, South Staffordshire for 11 years. He went on to sell his business realising his investment. This is what he had to say about his Oven Wizards experience - 

“I joined Oven Wizards for various reasons, the important ones being getting the work life balance and flexibility it offered. I chose an Oven Wizards franchise as it offered good value for money and I found Mark and John very easy to deal with and trustworthy. 

The start-up training was very comprehensive and included business building and on the job technical training. If I ever had any problems/issues John or Mark were only a phone call away and always eager to help. 



One of the greatest advantages I found of owning an Oven Wizards franchise is being your own boss and making your own decisions and not having to answer to anyone. 

Some of the most enjoyable aspects are getting out and about every day and meeting new customers and getting to know them over the years.

 The sale of my franchise went a lot better than expected with the help of John and Mark.

 My plans for the future are to travel including getting away a lot more in our motor home with my wife.

 I would advise anyone thinking of going down the oven cleaning franchise route to give it a great deal of thought and don't rush the decision. Do your research so as to make the right choice for yourself and your family “ 

“It was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life, I have no regrets.”

Harvey wanted something where he could focus on customer service, whilst building a successful business.

Harvey Rainbow invested in an Oven Wizards Territory after previously working as a store manager at the Co-Op. This is what Harvey had to say about his experience so far – 

“ I did a fair bit of research before I made my investment, I liked how well the Oven Wizards proposition was put together. There is lots of information available to get an understanding. I wanted a business where I could focus on customer service whilst at the same time building a successful business for myself and my family, Oven Wizards ticked all the boxes. One other factor for me was the size of the territory, Oven Wizards offer a good sized Territory with more than enough work available.

 During my initial training I was able to spend time with a local Wizard and from day one I learnt how to provide a professional oven valeting service. I have lots of neighbouring Wizards whose help and support has been invaluable. I also get the regular support from John and Mark. I sleep easy at night knowing that we have a wealth of experience to draw on from within the Oven Wizards community. 


I have been able to put in place the new things I have learnt whilst being an Oven Wizard to make sure I have had the best start possible. This has been so insightful as it really is a proven model. When John and Mark say they know what it takes to build a great oven cleaning business, they know what they are talking about.

Before investing, definitely do your research. It is a big commitment, however if you put in the work, it can pay off and you can build yourself a really good income. I would also say have a look around. The greatest piece of advice is patience. This isn’t a get rich quick scheme and I don’t have a Lamborghini on the drive. I do however have the foundations to earn a good income that I deserve and the opportunity to grow. I have the time I wanted to be able to spend time doing the things I want to do. You put in the effort and time and the world is your oyster.

David loves the flexibility and appreciates the excellent support.

David Tomlinson owns and operates Oven Wizards Tynedale and Newcastle, this is what he has to say about his experience with Oven Wizards - 



I have completed over 10 years of trading and it has been challenging at times but also very successful and rewarding. I have always been ahead of my plans, and I have cleaned thousands,of ovens, hobs & 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 & 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 & development was extremely informative and useful. Mark & 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.

If you would like to follow David and join Oven Wizards, we do still have some Territories available. Please feel free to give us a call for an informal chat on 01367 850162 / 07590 536425 or visit the Oven Wizards website at http://www.ovenwizards.com/franchise/

The Oven Wizards Annual Conference is back!

Oven Wizards got together earlier this Summer for their Annual Conference in Stratford-upon-Avon.It was great to be back meeting face to face. The Conference together with the Regional Meetings are a great Opportunity for Wizards to get together face to face to build relationships, share best practice and enjoy themselves in a relaxed atmosphere.The day included the business meeting and a social event with excellent entertainment.

The feedback has been brilliant –

Harvey Rainbow, who owns and operates the Milton Keynes Territory said “It was really great to meet fellow Wizards and putting faces to names. I had a blast. Thank you to John and Mark for organising and to everyone for the atmosphere”.

Russell Borland from Oven Wizards Lanarkshire said “Thank you for your hospitality and hosting an excellent conference which was most informative and enjoyable. It was good to be able to exchange ideas and get a picture of how other franchisees are operating their businesses nationally”.

Subjects covered on the day included Operations, Sales and Service and our guest speaker was Rachel Barham from the Federation of Small Business.

Bryan Dean who has owned and operated Oven Wizards, South West Coventry for nearly 10 years said “As always I get plenty of ideas and support from the group and both John and Mark. Thanks to everybody for all the effort you put in to make the conference and our franchises so successful.

Mark Abbott, Managing Director of Oven Wizards said “It was great to see all our Wizards getting together again face to face, it’s really good to hear how well they are all doing in their chosen Territories. It has been a tough few years, so we have been really pleased to see how well our Franchisees have prospered, long may it continue.”

He went on to say, “We had Wizards coming together from all over the UK. Whilst we are now getting good National coverage, we still have Territories available for the right sort of people”.

Oven Wizards deliver another magical year!!

 


Oven Wizards are pleased to report excellent continued growth in terms of their business in 2021

Business is up 25% in the last year in terms of ovens cleaned by Oven Wizards Franchisees, culminating with our busiest December ever!

We also experienced one of the best years in terms of new Wizards joining the community from Dundee in the North to Devon in the South.

Martin Simpson,who started his new Oven Wizards business in South East Devon in March 2021 said, Mark Abbott and John Graham - the Oven Wizards franchisors,have the perfect balance between friendly guidance, solid support and, most importantly, the same desire for (our) success as we have. Everything that Mark and John have provided in terms of business development advice has been completely accurate, timely and wholly appropriate to building a successful oven-cleaning operation. And it is working!  At the outset, I was prepared for a slow build-up with an acknowledgement that I may need to prop up the monthly income from savings.  However, business was brisk at the beginning and has rapidly increased to a point where my immediate aspiration for a second van on the road is nearing reality.  To suggest it is “going well” is an understatement!”

               
                                                                                       

Mark Abbott, Managing Director said,”2021 was a great recovery year for Oven Wizards, we have seen a massive Bounce Back across the board after the recent lockdowns in the UK. Our new Wizards have all experienced great starts with their new Oven Wizards businesses. We are thoroughly enjoying sharing our business ethos with our new franchisees and it is great to see them doing so well in their own territories.”

He went on to say “We are now firmly established as the 3rd largest oven cleaning franchise in the UK, and with an initial franchise Fee of still just £15000 and a fixed Monthly Management Fee of £240 we believe we still offer the best value for money oven cleaning Franchise on the market.”

Russell Borland, Oven Wizards, Lanarkshire said “When I was looking for a business opportunity oven cleaning was not initially on my list, but after investigation I realised this offered the advantage of profitable repeat business. Having previously been both a franchisee and franchise manager in other sectors, the Oven Wizards franchise stood out, due to the potential return on investment and work-life balance it offered. Mark and John, Directors and business owners of Oven Wizards, are always on hand with continual support as and when required”.
