Ten years of Oven Wizards!
In the first half of 2014, Oven Wizards welcomed eight new franchise owners into the fold. The Franchise Magazine looks at why, 10 years since it was established, this business is going from strength-to-strength.
This is a particularly important year for oven cleaning franchise Oven Wizards. Not only does 2014 mark its tenth anniversary, but the franchise is also celebrating taking up an associate membership of the British Franchise Association (bfa), having successfully passed the entry requirements.
This also comes at a time when the franchise is pleased to report continued growth in terms of both the number of franchise owners it has recruited and the number of ovens being cleaned across the country.
“This year is shaping up to be one of our best so far, building on our successes achieved in recent times,” explains Oven Wizards Managing Director, Mark Abbott. “During the first half of 2014, we recruited a total of eight new franchise owners and are thoroughly enjoying sharing our business ethos with them all. In turn, it has been very rewarding to see these new owners doing so well in their own territories.”
Meanwhile, Oven Wizards’ more established franchise owners are also reporting year-on-year growth in their own businesses and have all recently been sharing their best practices at a series of local business meetings, which have taken place around the country.
Clive Beeston, Oven Wizards franchise owner in the Chelmsford area, said about Oven Wizards: “I warmed to their honest and frank approach straight away. They answered all the questions I could throw at them. I then went off to speak with several of the existing Oven Wizards franchise owners, who all gave really good feedback, particularly in the area of on-going support that is provided.”
Ray White, Oven Wizards franchise owner in Watford, also has nothing but positive things to say about his experience with the brand. “Things have gone from strength-to-strength since I signed up as an Oven Wizards franchise owner. Whenever I have had a problem or have encountered something I am unsure of, someone has always been available to discuss and advise on the best course of action. This sense of togetherness extends to all the Oven Wizards franchise owners. Everyone helps each other.”
With his diary reaching bursting point, Ray is at the point where he is seriously considering putting a second Oven Wizards van on the road to help manage the workload. He takes comfort in the fact that he knows that he won’t have to look far in order to receive advice on the best course of action prior to taking this important step.
“When it comes to buying a franchise, I certainly made the right decision by joining Oven Wizards,” Ray adds. “I looked at the market place and spoke to various franchisors. I didn’t jump in without doing my research up front. It took me about eight months to make my final decision and this diligence has paid off, as I am now the owner of a successful Oven Wizards oven cleaning business.”
Aiming to make the second half of 2014 as successful as the first, Oven Wizards remains focused on expanding its business further still and, as such, is actively looking to recruit new franchise owners. Perhaps no better advertisement for the business can be found than the words of David Tomlinson, Oven Wizards franchise owner in Newcastle: “In terms of great value and support, I believe Oven Wizards is the best franchise available on the market.”
