A longstanding over valeting firm in Leeds has committed to further job creation as it continues to expand in its 10th anniversary year.
Ovenu Leeds North West in strengthening its team of professional oven valeters with the creation of a technician role, building on the appointment of a sub-contractor in 2018.
The firm, which is owned by entrepreneur, Richard Greenwood, who operates Ovenu franchises in Bradford and Wakefield, carries out more than 50 oven valets per week across West Yorkshire.
Richard is celebrating a decade in business with Ovenu, over which time he has amassed in excess of 25,000 oven valets across West Yorkshire.
He said: “We have continued to grow and have enjoyed another strong year, which I expect to continue throughout the remainder of 2019. I am committed to investing in the expansion of our team as this will allow us to serve even more customers and drive forward future growth.
“I am proud of the last 10 years and what we have achieved, with multiple franchises across West Yorkshire, and I am hoping for continued success and job creation over the next couple of years.”
Ovenu is a franchise network made up of more than 100 businesses owned by men and women working throughout the UK.
Rik Hellewell, the Managing Director and Founder of Ovenu, said: “Richard has a proven track record of growth during his time with Ovenu and has created many job opportunities for sub-contractors over the last decade. I am sure this positive trend will continue and I’d like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
The Ovenu valeting process involves dismantling key components of an oven such as the door, interior panels, fans and shelves and placing them into design-registered tank equipment, which uses safe, non-caustic products to clean the oven parts. The whole process takes around three to four hours and leaves the oven, hob and exterior in immaculate condition.
