Cookerburra – Oven cleaning franchises UK
Thank you for taking the time and decisions to investigate further the franchise opportunity here at Cookerburra. Cookerburra was created from a dream, created long before we commenced trading in 1993. From our very first business plan the intention was always to franchise the concept of a professional commercial and domestic oven cleaning service.
To provide professional oven cleaning services for both domestic and commercial customers throughout the UK. This will be achieved through a franchise network, with each franchisee managing its own exclusive franchise territory.
The market for oven cleaning is vast with over 30 million households nationwide; potentially requiring an oven cleaning service. The commercial market which includes pubs, restaurants, hotels, cafes, leisure facilities and schools all need to ensure high standards of hygiene and may require professional oven cleaning.
To start with, our initial training package lasts for three weeks and includes training in business planning, product knowledge, systems, sales, marketing, finance, operations, 2 day launch in territory and six days “in field” training.
