Ultimate van-based franchise, with the PLUS factor built in.

With a weekly turnover of around £1,400 servicing 45 customers, Oxford franchisee Steve Edwards is taking his business to the next level

Oxford Franchised Technician Steve Edwards was initially attracted to the FiltaFry Plus business by the exclusivity of the Oxford territory and the fact that it is based on weekly repeat visits. Servicing 45 customer per week, which equates to a weekly income of around £1,400, he is enjoying a more fulfilling and relaxed lifestyle than he did employed as a pharmaceuticals stock taker, and has now taken on his fi rst employee allowing him to take his business to the next level.

'I love the business and my customers are fantastic.' Steve states, 'I know thatmany of them will now want to purchase their kitchen hygiene supplies from me as well,as I can deliver our top quality, great value products to their doors. They do not have to order any particular minimum quantity and these type of products they use every day.'

FiltaFry Plus' Financial Director Charles Hill says: 'Acquiring a FiltaFry Plus franchise requires and initial investment from £14,950 plus VAT and working capital. Our strong relationships with the major financial institutions means that many of our franchisees can start with us with as little as £5,000 in liquid capital.'Our technicians require vision, effort, commitment and enthusiasm which are qualities we will match every step of the way.'Steve agrees. 'You'll certainly get value out of the business comparable to what you put in. I'd defiantly advise anyone looking for a solid franchise business to choose FiltaFry Plus just like I have.'
