Ovenu fran­chise cook­ing on high as it cre­ates new tech­ni­cian role in jobs boost

Yorkshire Post - Business - - FOCUS ON SMES -

AN OVEN valet­ing busi­ness is set for growth and says it is com­mit­ted to cre­ate more jobs.

Ovenu Leeds is creat­ing a new tech­ni­cian role to strengthen its team of pro­fes­sional oven valeters.

The firm, which is owned by en­tre­pre­neur Richard Green­wood, who also op­er­ates Ovenu fran­chises in Brad­ford and Wake­field, car­ries out more than 50 oven valets per week across West York­shire.

With the ap­point­ment, Mr Green­wood is ex­pect­ing ad­di­tional growth in the num­ber of jobs in 2018, along­side the strong re­peat busi­ness from ex­ist­ing clients and re­fer­rals, which ac­count for 70 per cent of the firm’s busi­ness ac­tiv­ity.

He said: “We are look­ing to hit the ground run­ning in the New Year and by fur­ther strengthening our team this sets Ovenu up per­fectly for fur­ther growth and to meet in­creased de­mand for our ser­vices.

“Win­ter is tra­di­tion­ally our busiest time of year, and this pos­i­tiv­ity has fol­lowed into Jan­uary, with our or­der book con­tin­u­ing to grow. The re­cruit­ment of a tech­ni­cian will com­ple­ment our all-round of­fer­ing to clients, while also creat­ing a self-em­ploy­ment op­por­tu­nity in the re­gion.

“I am ex­pect­ing that we will be in a po­si­tion to grow the team fur­ther over the course of the year, as well as through­out Ovenu’s net­work in West York­shire.”

Ovenu is a fran­chise net­work made up of more than 100 busi­nesses owned by men and women work­ing through­out the UK.

Rik Hellewell, founder and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Ovenu, said: “Richard has con­tin­ued to grow his busi­ness from strength to strength and this lat­est ad­di­tion to his team will sup­port the con­tin­ued suc­cess of the firm.”

The Ovenu valet­ing process in­volves dis­man­tling key com­po­nents of an oven such as the door, in­te­rior pan­els, fan and shelves and plac­ing them into de­sign-reg­is­tered tank equip­ment, which uses safe, non-caus­tic prod­ucts to clean the oven parts.
