Ovenu, the Beverley-based oven valeting business, is celebrating a second successful year in business, providing specialist services to homes and businesses across East Yorkshire.
Ovenu owner Jenny Fothergill has delivered our environmentally-friendly oven cleaning service to more than 600 satisfied clients and residential properties, including regular bookings from landlords and lettings agents across Beverley and West Hull villages.
As well as cleaning in Beverley, Jenny also covers the areas of Cottingham, Willerby, Swanland, Hessle, Brough, Kingswood, Market Weighton, Hornsea, Bilton and all of the surrounding villages in the East Riding of Yorkshire.
Jenny previously worked as a Marketing Manager for a construction company, before launching Ovenu in Beverley so she could be her own boss and have the flexibility to work around her other commitments.
Starting a business during a recession could have been risky, but Jenny found that by giving outstanding customer service and people’s ‘make and do mend’ philosophy means that many clients want to increase the life span of their old appliances rather than having to purchase new ones.
Jenny said: “Since starting my OVENU business two years ago I have grown my client base substantially and have established a strong reputation across the local area. Beverley has embraced my service and I’ve been winning lots of new work through referrals from existing customers.
“I am hoping to keep my business and customer base growing at the same rate and I am aiming to reach my 1000th clean within the next year.
“I have really enjoyed these past two years as the job satisfaction is really high. One of the best parts is seeing my customers’ faces once I have completed the job and I always receive excellent feedback from customers who are so happy to have a clean and safe oven again.
Jenny’s growing Ovenu business is part of a UK-wide franchises operation made up of more than 100 UK franchisees.
Rik Hellewell, Founder of Ovenu, said: “It’s great to see Jenny continuing to do so well. She has proved it’s possible to succeed when people work hard and a have a stake in their business. Jenny is proof that motivated people can use our tried, tested & trusted franchise model to create exceptionally successful small businesses.”
