A BRADFORD oven valeter has been celebrating his ten-year anniversary in the business.

Richard Greenwood owns Ovenu Bradford, and in the past decade has valeted more than 25,000 ovens across West Yorkshire.

As well as his Bradford franchise, he also operates franchises in Leeds and Wakefield, and along with his team carries out around 50 valets every week.

Mr Greenwood said: “I have enjoyed a very successful decade with Ovenu, which would not have been possible without the ongoing, loyal support of my client base.

“It has been a pleasure to serve the Bradford and wider West Yorkshire area.

“I have met a lot of people over the course of my oven valeting career so far, and made many friends for life over this period, which has made the job even more satisfying.”

Ovenu is a franchise network made up of more than 100 businesses across the UK. It involves dismantling ovens and giving them a deep clean, leaving the oven, hob and exterior looking as good as new.

Rik Hellewell, managing director and founder of Ovenu, said: “Richard has enjoyed great success over the last ten years which is testament to his work ethic and commitment to Ovenu.

“He is a perfect example of someone who has established the brand and exported it to other territories, replicating the success achieved in his initial area. I would like to wish him all the very best for the future.”
