Renewal celebrations for Oven Wizards’ Ian Keddie
Bringing in new franchise owners is always important to a brands expansion, but being able to retain an experienced franchise owner is equally as important, and in the case of Oven Wizards, one of their longest-serving franchise owners has agreed to renew his Franchise Agreement for another five years.
Ian Keddie, owner of Oven Wizards Dartford, has been a franchise owner with the brand since 2005, and had no qualms about renewing his contract, which will see him look to expand his business after setting up a successful network over the last 10 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. 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.”
Mark Abbott, Managing Director and owner of Oven Wizards, said of Keddie continuing his agreement for another five years: “It is great to see that Ian has renewed his agreement for a further five years. He is a valuable member of our franchise community. While 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 franchise owners, including delivering initial training for them.”
With the signing of his new agreement, Keddie is confident that he can really grow the business over the next five years and ensure that his vision of where he sees himself in that time is realised. His main aim is to grow the business and put more vans on the road, while winding down the amount of physical work, but instead turning his skills to managing the business more. “I will still get my hands dirty though when needed, but I really want to be able to concentrate more on the growth and running of the business instead,” concluded Keddie.
