Leeds-based oven valeting company celebrates 10th anniversary in business
A West Yorkshire-based oven valeter is celebrating 10 years in business.
Richard Greenwood, owner of Ovenu Leeds North West, has amassed more than 25,000 oven valets in the past decade 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 per 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.
He 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.”
In the past decade, Richard’s group of businesses have seen repeat work from existing clients and referrals, accounting for more than 70 per cent of his franchises’ business activity.
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 UK professionals.
