Orlando, Florida (PressExposure) September 16, 2009 -- How did such a mutually beneficial service industry leader come to light as both an early adopter of environmentally friendly industry and commitment to excellence?
Filtafry's success begins with one man's idea in 1996 taking flight and offering both a valuable service and an opportunity for financial independence at a low start up cost. Upon taking the US franchise market by storm in 2002, the steady movement towards more advancements is seen growing each and every year since. Now spanning the globe, the franchise continues to develop new ideas and means of continuing to provide environmentally sound services to food service establishments from the small, such as Grampa's Catfish in Arkansas- to places such as Applebee's, a name everyone knows.
From the very beginning, the franchise was an environmentally sound idea- and initially, this was due to the very nature of the service already providing an environmentally friendly alternative to what had already been the norm for waste oil use and disposal. Since then, Filtafry has continually improved upon the name and the services it provides, offering more and more to food service locations seeking a better way of doing things. With two hundred and fifty units worldwide and growing, the company has quickly become the leader in the industry. Offering a higher standard of franchise operations, Filtafry has seen many changes in recent years. This will likely continue to as new options arise and new plans are developed in the progress they've become known for.
In addition to this already longstanding commitment to environmental excellence, Filtafry shows a commitment to the communities they are found in unlike any other franchise. As early as 2005, just a mere 3 years after its introduction as a franchise to the US, Filtafry began getting involved in the VETFRAN program, expanding the initiative to also include police, fire and other personnel. More recently, Richard Hamilton of Little Rock, Arkansas began using his bio diesel, made from the waste oil he takes away from many area businesses to fuel his van. Offering a living example of how the transition benefits him, he is also educating local businesses about the clear advantages of this service, as well.
As franchisees are often valued members of their own communities and towns, a boost to local economies is seen. As small business owners, Filtafry franchise owners are a big part of the backbone of local economy, enabling food service providers to lower not only their costs, but also, bringing about an impact on local economy in their own right. These are just a small taste of the many reasons that Filta is now leading the pack when it comes to franchises on the move.
