Why franchising after 50 could mean a happier, healthier you.

“I only have one regret with my investment. I wish I had done it earlier!” Richard Metcalfe – Ovenclean Franchisee since October 2016

No matter what age you are, making a positive new start in your career can be hugely rewarding. There is no doubt that changing your career after the age of 50 can be a daunting and somewhat scary prospect, especially when it could mean leaving the comfort of a well-paid job that you’re highly experienced in and becoming self-employed, but it doesn’t need to be that way.

Every day, individuals take the plunge towards finding the lifestyle they deserve, giving them the flexibility and freedom to work according to a schedule that suits them. Many have never been self-employed before, while others simply look for a way to scale back and establish a better life balance.

Three of these individuals share their remarkable journeys with us. After deciding to take back control by investing in a franchise opportunity, each of them totally changed their lives for the better – completely exceeding their expectations of what their career paths could offer them after 50.

Life after voluntary redundancy: Steen Mickelborg, 56.

I previously worked as an Account Manager for 30 years but was looking for something completely different after taking voluntary redundancy. The option of running my own business was extremely appealing. Rather than starting from scratch, I wanted business support and guidance to help my launch and on-going business growth. Ovenclean had the reassurance of a solid, reputable brand and a proven business model where my investment would be secure. I looked at various franchises but decided Ovenclean was the one for me.

I can truthfully say that the instant job satisfaction, interaction with customers and more positives have meant that this journey has been the best thing I have done for many, many years. I truly enjoy what I’m doing.”

A Healthier, Happier Me – James Arthur, 60

James Arthur

Since joining Ovenclean, James Arthur, 60, has discovered the physical and wellbeing benefits of finally having a job and lifestyle he loves. I really enjoy the flexibility the franchise offers. We are now able to visit our holiday home in Pembrokeshire more often, my blood pressure has gone down, I love being out and about meeting new people every day, and I’ve even lost half a stone! I have absolutely no regrets whatsoever about my decision and couldn’t be happier!

Making the change was easy, thanks to the huge amount of support – Graham Kerridge, 52

With the support that is there from Head Office, that transition from being employed to being self-employed, for me, was very easy.

It’s the reassurance that what you do is tried and tested and that it’s a proven end-product, which is what people like.
