So, the day after returning from my family holiday in Dubai just so happens to also be the official launch day for Oven King Ltd. The team have been hard at work behind the scenes conducting vast amounts of market research, kitting out the first of our service vans, sending staff off for comprehensive training and we are now ready to launch our brand into the market place.
Our intention will be to roll out a fleet of vans within the Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch postcode sectors initially establishing a reputable and respected multi-van operation becoming a local name for professional local oven cleaning.
With a combination of our own marketing efforts and the consistent delivery of the highest standards of service Oven King hopes to become an established household brand in as quick a time as possible. Ultimately we aim to be rolling out franchises by early 2014 with secure revenue coming from our local fleet proving the strength of the Oven King business model, offering training and a fully equipped service van included in the cost of a franchise, something which other oven cleaning franchises do not offer from the outset.
With a strong business plan and the idea to sell 40-50 franchise sectors a year to an ultimate goal of nationwide coverage in the region of 250-300 individual franchises Oven King has the foundation in place to become a market leader within 5 years. Subject to things going to plan after 12months there are other franchising opportunities that also appeal to me that I may be looking into at a later stage.
