Mark launches oven valet franchise

A FORMER recruitment specialist from Clapton-in-Gordano has launched his own oven valeting business.

March Church has launched Ovenu to serve homes and businesses across North Somerset and will offer a professional service for mobile ovens, Agas and barbecues.

His venture is part of a UK-wide franchise network and his brother Patrick operates the neighbouring franchise in Bath and North East Somerset.

A former company director, 52-year-old Mark is hoping to maintain his family’s interest in Ovenu by building the business to a size that will enable his sons, both in their 20s, to get involved.

He said: “I am really looking forward to working in my own community and bringing a new service to customers in the area.

“I am excited about the opportunity to start a business in a new industry, with the security of having the support of an established franchise network that has a successful track-record.”
