The Flagship of the Filta Group Brand. FiltaFry is the original cooking oil filtration & fryer management business. The service is an eco-friendly, mobile, on-site service for the micro-filtration of cooking oil and the vacuum based cleaning of deep fryers. The easy to sell client benefits of FiltaFry's proven fryer management system is the ideal solution for restaurants looking to improve food quality, reduce liability, reduce frying costs, and decrease their impact on the environment due to waste cooking oil. FiltaFry has a simple and effective strategy for developing a new client base. On average, over 50% of restaurants who demo the service become long term customers.
Again designed to help Filta franchise owners increase the RPC, the waste oil collection service, FiltaBio has been introduced. Once the cooking oil has come to the end of its life, franchise owners can collect the oil and immediately remove it safely from the customer’s site - no waste oil drums or containers continually attracting rats and other unwanted issues.
From there, the oil is purified and sent to be made into biodiesel, the safe and environmentally friendly alternative to petrochemical based diesel. The result is a revenue generating service offered from the same van with little additonal workload.
Designed to help Filta franchise owners increase the RPC (revenue per customer), FiltaCool is designed to offer additonal needed services to clients and improve profitability for franchise owners. In tandem with the FiltaFry service, FiltaCool is the most effective moisture control system available for businesses who need to control moisture in walk in coolers. The result for customers is lower electricity bills, lower maintenance costs on refrigeration systems, and food that stays fresh longer, thus reducing waste. The result for Filta franchise owners is increased RPC with almost no additional work load.

Is Prior Business Experience Necessary?
While the Filta franchise opportunity is designed to be mastered by anyone, Filta has identified several key personality factors common in their most successful franchise owners. For this reason, they have become fairly selective in who they offer the opportunity to. Business experience is a plus, but by far the largest determinant of who they accept into their franchise system is a strong will to succeed.
"When our franchises make money, Filta Group makes money. The last thing we want is for a new franchise owner to secure what could have been a profitable area, and not fulfill its profit potential. It is for this reason that we have implemented a more stringent standard for who we accept as new franchise owners in 2010. If you meet our quality standards, there is an extremely high chance you will join the successful ranks of Filta franchise owners." - Jason Sayers
"My wife and I were looking for a franchise that would allow us to work from a home office, service repeat customers, with huge market growth potential and limited competition. We wanted to be partnered with a franchisor with a proven system that took a straight forward and honest approach to how they did business. We found all of that with Filta. One thing we didn't anticipate was how much fun we would have interacting on a regular basis with a great support staff. It has truly been a great experience for us!" - Duc & Jessica Pham, Filta Environmental Kitchen Solutions, Kansas/Missouri
"I started my Filta business in the middle of the worst recession in decades. Within 7 months, I had 3 vans on the road servicing weekly repeat customers. The FiltaFry business is in high demand. I would recommend this franchise to anyone." - JJ Paul. Franchise Owner, Birmingham, AL
"I have built relationships with General Managers and Owners and my goal has always been to enhance their restaurant operations. FiltaFry has been my life for the last five years. It's a great business which continues to expand through new customers and additional products. I've just renewed my Franchise Agreement for another five years." - Scott Brinsfield. Franchise Owner, Salisbury, MD
"I have been a franchise owner since April 2010 with steady growth in the Chicagoland area. The brand continues to gain traction within the food service industry and the addition of multiple service streams such as FiltaCool and FiltaBio to complement the FiltaFry service makes for increased profitability per stop and continued loyalty with our customers." - Bob Smith, Chicago Area Franchise Owner
"Life is wonderful. I always tell new future franchisees when they call and ask my advice about the business "If I can do this anyone can." You can build your business. You can build a better life for your family. Filta has always been there for me." - Jim McCormick, Raleigh, NC
"Weekly repeat business was the key for me. One of the national account customers is alone worth $1,100 per week. Filta helped me expand by financing an additional territory for me after only a year in operations." - Robert Orr, Ft. Lauderdale, FL
"Filta provides such a unique business opportunity with a service that practically sells itself. Just to name a few of the selling points, it is a green service that saves the customer money, reduces their liability, improves their food quality and makes a positive impact on the environment. Plus, Filta continually works to add new revenue streams and improve the existing ones. Top all of that off with the fact that there is really no competition in this space and you have a no brainer!" - Mike Powers, Franchise Owner in Houston, TX
"I spent 28 years in the hospitality industry as everything from a bus boy to an executive chef. I purchased my Filta Franchise because I was tired of working for somebody else, and wanted to do something on my own that would have something to do with and be beneficial to the food service industry. After only 7 months, I have two vans running and service restaurants, hospitals, country clubs, and other business and industry cafeterias, and I am barely scratching the surface of my Territory." - Todd Barnum, Franchise Owner in Charleston, SC
