Filta is the pioneer of on-site fryer management and cooking oil filtration services. With little to no competition, Filta's “green” services are provided to commercial kitchens on average 1-2 times each week to over 5,000 customers that include restaurants, hospitals, colleges, sports venues, corporate cafeterias, hotels, grocery stores and more. Filta franchise owners operate in large, protected territories and can grow their businesses at a pace and to a scale that is comfortable to them.
Filta generally attracts the type of Franchisee who is specifically considering a mobile, out-of-home business that is largely based on repeat business (commercial cleaning, lawn care, pest control, etc.). Unlike the other service businesses though, Filta is not in a competitive space. In fact, we invented the fryer management service and introduced cooking oil micro-filtration and have long established ourselves as the industry leader worldwide. Simply put, there’s little to no competition. Knowing that there are not multiple companies all fighting for the same customers frees you up to focus on new business without constantly worrying that a competitor is going to come in and undercut you to take your business. Add in the fact that Filta franchise owners have 5 different eco-friendly products and services to offer their clients and what you end up with is a stable customer base and a high margin opportunity.
While job titles, industry background and experience have little bearing on success as a Filta Franchise owner, there are common denominators that we look for. The ideal Filta franchise owner has determination and persistence, operates with honesty and integrity, is customer focused and service oriented and has confidence and good self esteem. The desire to build relationships and the ability to manage people go a long way. We want our owners working on their businesses, not in them.
Training And Support
Filta franchise owners each participate in a comprehensive 2 week training program at Filta’s headquarters in Orlando, FL. Each owner is assigned a Coach and a Business Development Manager to launch their franchise in their territory. Ongoing support systems include a custom tailored CRM and operations management program, inside sales services, an employee recruitment support program, standardized training systems for employees and an around the clock technical support hotline.
“Back in 2009, in the midst of the biggest recession in decades, I decided to invest in a Filta franchise. The concept of reducing consumption and liability and taking away an undesirable job from the kitchen staff made sense to me. Thankfully it does to the clients also. Over time I've been able to build a repeat customer base that is now generating over $1m in annual sales. I would recommend Filta to anybody seeking a unique business opportunity that can thrive in any economic climate!” ~ Tom Gibbons, Augusta, GA
