From plumber to successful oven clean business

There’s no-one happier than Danny Kearns’ father after he took over oven valeting business Ovenu Jersey.

For it was dad Heath who alerted the self-employed plumber to the opportunity after he called Ovenu to have his oven cleaned, only to learn the island’s previous franchisee had retired.

With Danny searching for a career where he could structure his work around family commitments, he quickly realised the huge business potential and recently became the proud owner of Ovenu Jersey.

The 30-year-old, who is born and bred on the island, said: “Naturally, my dad was my very first client and is extremely pleased after having had to wait a few months! As a long-standing Ovenu client, he alerted me to the fact the Jersey franchise was available.

“I’m not sure whether it was because it is a fantastic business opportunity or that he just wanted his oven cleaning, either way it’s a win-win situation for both of us.” he joked.

Heath added: “I’m pleased that Danny is running a brilliant business that delivers a service that I value highly and hopefully in the coming years he will still find time to fit me in!”

Danny previously ran his own domestic plumbing business, but the father-of-two wanted to devote more time to his son and daughter and was looking to switch to a career that offered an improved work life balance.

Having completed a week-long training course, he has relaunched Ovenu Jersey and within the first day had already secured a week’s worth of bookings.

He added: “As well as reconnecting with the loyal customer base, my ambition is to further grow the business by attracting new clients.”

“Having been a plumber experienced in running his own business, Danny has many transferable skills, which not only includes his technical expertise but his passion for delivering a top quality service.”
