Exciting times keep on trucking for Oven King. Hard on the heels of the launch of the second van we are now up to full capacity with orders for both. So we have now introduced our third van to the fleet. This is a van with a bit of a difference. It’s a full size Mercedes Sprinter rather than our existing Berlingos.
The main benefit of the full-size Mercedes Sprinter is that while our work comes from various sources we were very surprised by the number of bookings from customers who had simply seen one of our vans.
So what made great sense to us was to utilise one our big vans within the group as a “poster board” van, taking it to some jobs, using it as a travelling billboard and leaving it in good spots throughout the area where it can be seen. All legal parking, of course!
Today we have taken full advantage of our new van as it’s the start of the Bournemouth Air Show which attracts well over 1,000,000 visitors to the Bournemouth area. We will try to park it in a different spot every day to maximise Oven King’s exposure. We have already received a call today from someone who saw it. Which is all good.
So we are happy with the growth of Oven King to date with the launch of our third van and hopefully by mid-Dec
ember we will be dipping our toes into the franchising market and teaching our franchisees what we have learned to date and how we have managed to get our vans to full capacity in such a short space of time.
