Luke Cooks up a Model Business Success Story
A Croydon entrepreneur, who was once a successful City banker and a former male model, is celebrating a decade in the oven valeting business.
Luke Payne, of Ovenu Croydon, has single-handedly cleaned 10,000 ovens over the past decade and is now planning to take on staff for the first time this year.
Luke has set his sights on expansion, and is planning to take on a full-time employee and to buy a van in the coming months with further jobs planned in the future.
Luke, 44, who is married with three children, says he has “not looked back” since starting out in business in 2005. As well as number crunching in the City for four years, Luke modelled for major brands, including Kickers.
Luke said: “It’s brilliant to be celebrating ten years in business and I’m delighted that the business is now in a position to grow. The plan is to take on a subcontractor to help serve our increasing number of loyal and new customers.
“As well as cleaning family ovens, we have developed a bit of a specialism cleaning appliances in catering wagons. I love what I do, including meeting new people and ensuring high quality and a service that people can trust.”
Ovenu Croydon provides its environmentally-friendly service to homes and businesses in the Borough of Croydon and all surrounding towns and villages.
Rik Hellewell, managing director and founder of Ovenu, said: “I am delighted for Luke that he has reached this significant milestone and is experiencing growth. He is a prime example of someone who has invested in the Ovenu brand and enjoyed continued success, and I would like to wish him all the best for the future.”
Ovenu is a franchise network made up of more than 100 businesses owned by men and women working throughout the UK.
The Ovenu valeting process involves dismantling key components of an oven such as the door, interior panels, fan 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.
