In the last week we have rebranded our oven cleaning franchisee in Berkshire from OvenGleam to OvenGleamers and also got a new van ready for a new franchisee for oven cleaning in Surrey and Hants. The new van is a Nissan NV200 and I have being driving it around for the last week or so getting it fitted out, sign written and ready. And wow it really is a great van and I really love it really because it does feel like a modern version of my Daihatsu Extol, the upright driving position is the same, the nippy driving is the same and that odd feeling that you are driving an arm chair with little wheels is there too! Also the feeling of space is there both in the cab and in the back. With the dip tank fitted in the back and partitioned off, the inner compartment is still nice and roomy to get all the cleaning stuff in. And the best feature is the small TV on the dashboard that shows you what is behind when you are reversing. Best of all it just looks fabulous with our logos on, though it would have looked a whole lot better it the sides had been flat! The phone number will be added to the back of the van, just incase you are wondering where it is.
This week is week one of two and today was the first franchisee training day. Today we have gone through Health and Safety, the paperwork, and looked at the ovens and AGA cooker that we have in our training kitchen and I have demonstrated our process of cleaning. In all a very good day.
