As well as offering practical and technical training in all elements of the service you’ll deliver, we provide a course in sales and marketing, unlimited support from our head office team and supply you with a business mentor – an experienced franchisee – who you can call whenever you need to.
The Ovenclean franchise package includes all the essential components for business success, including:
- Full sales and marketing support

- Digital marketing and PR support
Additionally, you’ll benefit from the fantastic volume of customer enquiries generated through head office on your behalf – which equated to an average of over £30,000 worth of leads per franchisee in 2020, so you can get up and running quickly and profitably, with the reassurance you’ll have a constant line up of eager customers.

No matter how you choose to work with Ovenclean, we’ll help you reach your ambitions.
Behind the scenes with an Ovenclean franchisee
James Arthur has been a franchisee since 2014. Prior to becoming an Ovenclean franchisee, he had enjoyed a successful career, working in international event management before being appointed as Head of Fundraising for a national charity. After a company restructure in 2012 ended in a voluntary redundancy, James began thinking about an alternative, self-employed lifestyle which would give him more control over his own life and diary. Click here to watch our video to find out more about James’ move to Ovenclean.|
An uninspiring job role which focused on negative customer experiences left Pam unhappy in her career. Her supportive husband, who recognised how fantastic she was at working with the public, encouraged her to seek a new path. Together, they researched jobs where she could make a difference to other people, offering a service they didn’t want to do themselves and which enabled her to regularly meet new people. They came across Ovenclean, which ticked all the boxes.
She said: “Ovenclean was totally different to what I had always done, and I was worried that I wouldn’t get enough business through the door – there’s a lot of responsibility with being self-employed.
“But when I enquired about an Ovenclean franchise opportunity in my local area with Franchise Brands, I got reassurance very quickly. I attended an open day where lots of experienced Ovenclean franchisees explained how they had come from boring careers and would never go back. It made me think I could do it, so we invested.
“I’ve started building my own profile, using social media to develop my brand locally, as well as newspapers and word of mouth recommendations. The business has grown quickly, and I absolutely love it.
“The exciting part is not really knowing what to expect from each customer. Sometimes I’m in and out within an hour, other times I’m there much longer. But whatever the case, the best part is the result. I absolutely love looking at my customers’ faces when they see I’ve got their oven looking cleaner than they ever expected it to.
“The main difference for me since joining Ovenclean is that I wake up happy. I wish I’d done this 10 years ago. My husband pushed me to get to this point and I’m so glad he did. I only have to rely on myself, and I know that I’ll do a good job. It’s my business, my time, my happiness. And that’s such a huge reward.”
