Oven valeting business reaches ten-year milestone

West Yorkshire-based oven valeter Ovenu has cleaned more then 25,000 ovens as it reaches its tenth year in the business.

Richard Greenwood, owner of Ovenu Leeds North West, has amassed more than 25,000 oven valets over the last 10 years operating throughout West Yorkshire.

Mr Greenwood, who also operates Ovenu franchises in Bradford and Wakefield, and his team of professional oven valeters, carry out around 50 oven valets every week across the region.

In 2009, Richard launched his first Ovenu franchise covering Halifax and Bradfordbefore expanding his operation to cover other towns and cities in West Yorkshire.

Over the last 10 years, Richard’s group of small businesses have enjoyed strong repeat business from existing clients and referrals, which account for more than 70% of his franchises’ business activity.

Richard said: “I have enjoyed a very successful decade with Ovenu, which would not have been possible without the ongoing, loyal support of my client base. It has been a pleasure to serve the Leeds and wider West Yorkshire area.

“It was certainly a risk that has paid off after starting out with Ovenu at the height of the UK’s economic downturn, but those challenging times helped me to shape the business and expand into new territories across the county.”

He added: “I have met a lot of people over the course of my oven valeting career so far, and made many friends for life over this period, which has made the job even more satisfying. I am looking forward to celebrating further milestones in the future as I continue to grow the business.”

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

Rik Hellewell, MD and Founder of Ovenu, said: “Richard has enjoyed great success over the last 10 years which is testament to his work ethic and commitment to Ovenu. He is a perfect example of someone who has established the brand and exported it to other territories, replicating the success achieved in his initial area. I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs from just £31.50 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
