Training provided by Ovenu
First off, you’ll spend a whole day getting to grips with the basics of running a business covering topics such as marketing, pricing, book-keeping and data storage.
This will be followed by 4 days of practical training; getting to know how to deliver spectacular results to consumers.
These 4 days are split into two distinct halves. The first 2 days are spent at our in-house Training Facility where we typically have 80 different items for you to witness – that’s more different appliances in one place than you’re likely to encounter in your first couple of years on the road!
Toward the end of day 3, you’ll get to clean & valet your first oven using your new skills!
We’ve found over the years that this approach is way more time-efficient than asking a new franchisee to start learning lots of new techniques ‘over the shoulder’ in people’s homes. Having the ‘safety net’ of our workshop environment is far better and significantly more reassuring for those entering a ‘whole new world’.
That said, once the basics have been covered and perfected, the next 2 days will be working ‘for real’ (with an experienced franchisee for guidance and help when needed) in genuine clients’ homes.
We also cover the cost of your accommodation while on our Induction Training.
Robust training is just one aspect of the Ovenu oven cleaning franchise package. When you become an Ovenu Franchisee you’ll become part of a nationwide network of business owners who understand exactly what you’re going through.
Our Franchisee Forum currently has over 600 topics and is the most valuable resource of its kind. You’ll also gain access to the most comprehensive list of discussion topics on pretty much any and every aspect of our business.
You’ll receive support from your fellow franchisees, but you’ll also get consistent support from the team at Ovenu itself. We traded right through the pandemic but were aware that enquiries were falling as a result of COVID fears. With this in mind, we reduced our management fees for 5 months for the franchisees to help them through.
