I’ve been out cleaning for the last few weeks, doing lots of AGAs and for a couple of days I’ve been out doing standard oven cleans as our guys have been getting ill.
Last week I cleaned three AGAs, a couple of two oven AGAs and a four oven AGA with a couple of them being repeat business (though this time dirty as they hadn’t had them cleaned for year) and really loved doing them. It’s great to be out cleaning again.
It’s been busy, busy, busy this week. Monday I was out, and cleaned two AGAs, and then on Tuesday I was out again to do three standard ovens, as our guy was sick. I was going to do four but in the end we switched things around and one of our other guys did the last job for me. The cleans were pretty dirty. Not like normal cleans! I’m getting used to do repeat business these days where the ovens aren’t that dirty. Two of the three were very bad with the third one being not bad at all. So in the end I had a lovely day.
I’ve been back in the office and we have been busy taking calls and we have beaten our weekly record of sales which we set in the exact same week last year by quite a margin, so that has been very exciting. Now it’s a case of filling in the gaps for us and the franchisees for Christmas to start looking towards the new year.
