FiltaFry Plus reflects on bumper year of growth

FiltaFry Plus is celebrating a strong year of growth so far with 14 new franchisees plus new Master Franchisees in Poland and Italy on board in 2008.

The fryer management service franchise is expecting further network growth before the end of the year through its participation in the National Franchise Exhibition in October (stand number F270) and Master Franchisees due to launch in Kuwait and Indonesia. In addition, the group has negotiated price increases on its major national accounts which provide a substantial portion of its franchisees' business.

'The franchise can suit any person from any background as long as they have a drive to succeed and basic customer skills,' says Franchise Manager Damian Slater. 'We have seen people from a variety of backgrounds join us this year including ex-professional footballer Martin Barlow from Plymouth, ex-hotelier Ian Kelly from Yorkshire and ex-train driver Tony Brough from Liverpool. There has never been such demand in the UK for the FiltaFry Plus Fryer Management Service, due to massive increases in cooking oil prices and the benefit of companies being able to eliminate Health and Safety Risks connected to the filtering and cleaning of Deep Fat Fryers in their commercial kitchens.'
