Filta's Story

An Idea to Resolve a Long-Held Problem

Dirty Oil. – Short shelf life. – Lower food quality. – Food safety issues. – Kitchen burns. – Major environmental impact.

Putting these fragmented issues together, there was an identified need, and then there was an idea. What if there was a way to extend the life of cooking oil that mitigated injury all while reducing impact on the environment?
After much R&D, mobile micro-filtration was developed and a little business called FiltaFry was born in the UK.


Filta’s Mission

It is The Filta Group’s commitment to increase the profitability of each franchise owner, year after year. We are dedicated to providing our Franchisees with new and improved Environmental Kitchen Solutions, so they can maximize the earnings potential at each client.

For the past 10 years, the FiltaFry service has always established our customer base and spearheaded our growth. In the last few years, FiltaBio, FiltaCool, and FiltaDrain have been added to the services offered by Franchise Owners. Our R&D department is continually market testing new products and services for future roll-out. For example, FiltaGold our patent pending new oil delivery system recently launched.

These additional services have created a multiple revenue stream model and we have seen a distinct move from our initial man and a van operation to business owners who want to develop a multi-van, multi-unit operation.

Filta’s Green Credentials

Filta’s services naturally preserve the environment, by extending the life of cooking oil with the FiltaFry service, recycling waste oil into biodiesel with FiltaBio, reducing energy consumption and food waste with the FiltaCool product, and eliminating floor drain clogs naturally with live ProBiotics in Filta DrainFoam.

In an age of climate change, and economic stresses, Filta’s services are being recognized at the forefront by the food and hospitality industry. Customers are realizing more than ever before the many benefits to be gained from our services.

Filta’s brand has evolved to fully recognize our eco-sustainable services.

International Franchising in an Age of Eco Awareness

Following great success in the UK with FiltaFry, The Filta Group began offering the rights to operate in other countries. Since 1996, The Filta Group has been providing unparalleled service around the world to restaurants and other food establishments. “Going Green” was never a commercial or trendy consideration for us. In 2003 the original founders relocated to the US to begin development of North America.

Filta’s Culture

When you become a Filta Franchisee, you join a dedicated and loyal family. We’re a service-oriented business; so by nature, the group is people-focused. This is true not only of our external customer relationships, but of our own network as well. There’s a true desire to help one another within the system because everyone started out the exact same way.

Existing owners can easily remember the early days and what it meant to have help and encouragement. We have the FiltaNet system that allows for Franchisee communication, collaboration, and support.

We run the business with honesty and integrity and pick Franchise owners with the same quality. After all, we hope to be partnered together for the long term.
