Cleaning up in Cornwall
Matthew had a fulltime job in as a health and safety supervisor at a local company, but wanted more for himself and his family now and in the future, “I wanted to start and grow my own business to have a better sense of personal achievement, and to have something I can pass on to my children.” The result was Duchy Oven Clean, an eco-friendly oven cleaning business covering the whole of Cornwall.
Matthew couldn’t get a bank loan, but his bank manager recommended he contacted Fredericks, Cornwall. Impressed with his comprehensive business plan, as well as his drive and determination, it wasn’t long before he was progressed through to loan panel. He was successful (and even picked up a few customers from his loan panel!) and soon was up and running, building up his profile through social media and enticing new customers with innovative give-aways and offers; his van is now a familiar site around the county.
Already cleaning commercial and private hobs, stoves, ovens, microwaves and BBQs, Matthew plans to expand his cleaning services at some point in the future, and even take on staff.
“Fredericks Cornwall helped me achieve my dream by being friendly, supportive & most of all believing in my vision and offering the start up grant needed to get the business off the ground.”
