Brian Smart, bfa Director General, said: “We welcome Oven Wizards to the bfa as an Associate Member. As the UK’s self-regulatory body for franchising, we have very strict standards and criteria for membership, based on a franchisor’s business systems, ethical practices, support offered and the contract between themselves and their franchise owners. Oven Wizards has successfully satisfied this accreditation process, demonstrating a commitment to investment in ethical franchising, and can look forward to making the most of their bfa membership and the benefits it brings.”
Established in 2004, the company was purchased by Mark Abbott and his business partner John Graham in 2010. Since then, the pair have operated in what they describe as a ‘hands-on’ manner, sharing their business ethos and both being fully involved in recruiting, launching and supporting their franchise owners. Over the last four years, Mark and John have successfully grown the number of Oven Wizards franchise owners to 36, with territories across the UK.
Abbott, Managing Director of Oven Wizards, said: “We are really pleased to be taking up membership with the bfa. What better time to do so, as 2014 is shaping up to be our best year yet, with eight new franchise owners already having joined us so far. In addition, the number of ovens cleaned by our franchise owners is up by well over 50 per cent year-on-year. We will be looking to become active members of the bfa as we seek to grow the reputation of the Oven Wizards brand and share our business ethos with more new franchise owners.”
