Longing to get out from behind the office desk made Jon take the leap to a more active role and self employment. With 25 + years experience in the motor trade Jon knew that his customer service was second to none and the skills required to build trust and good customer relationships were fine tuned. Having the logical thought of “every home has an oven”, Jon began researching into the oven cleaning business. Taking his research to the internet Jon landed on OvenKing and The King Academy. Finding The King Academy to be a “one stop shop” for all training and business set up for the oven cleaning industry, Jon made the contact and his new career journey began. Jon was lucky enough to speak to the boss man himself, where he found Daryl to be straight talking and professional. Moving forward Jon opted for the start up extra package with The King Academy. The startup package is a full corporate package that includes company branding, company colours, logo, domain name with a functional website. The design and print of business cards, flyers and the van livery, with Jons input Oven Legends was created.
Deciding that this training package was the best option for him. Enabling him to drive away from the training with an oven cleaning business ready to go. Jon admitted that he personally found parts of the training very much like being dropped into the deep end, with worries about what to do if something went wrong. Two years on and as a member of The King Academy Jon no longer has this worry. Jon completed his training in August of 2019 and was building a successful business in his local area of Sevenoaks from the get go.

Despite the turn of events with the global pandemic from March 2020, Jon was able to achieve the work life balance that he was after with his own oven cleaning business earning him the financial rewards from around October 2020. Perfecting the work life balance meant that Jon could take part in walking an ultra marathon, raising money for Teenage Cancer Trust.
The country wide lockdown did effect the general turnover of the business, however this has not meant that the demand for Jons oven cleaning skills are not still required. The demand for Oven Legends takes Jons bookings into mid August of 2021 and even cleans booked in for Christmas time. Jon believes that he must be something right with customers consistently re-booking their oven cleans with Oven Legends.
