Franchise Info

Filta franchisee cleaning kitchen

Filtafry is the world’s largest ‘total fryer management service’ with more than 350 franchises round the world that service more than 7,000 kitchens.

What do we do? Food is fried in oil. Unless there’s filtration, it’s used for a day – maybe four tops – and then thrown out so the fryers can be cleaned (a costly, environment-impacting hassle).  This is where a FiltaFry franchisees can help.

FiltaFry franchisees filter dirty used cooking oil through their unique micro filtration machine, extending the life of the cooking oil for the client while deep cleaning the fryers at the same time using a vacuum-based system.

Where permitted, franchisees can also provide fresh cooking oil, remove waste oil and provide kitchen hygiene products and chemicals adding healthy margins to their base service charge.

Franchisees only require a repeat customer base of 30-40 clients to make an excellent income.

FiltaFry is looking for people who desire to own, develop and manage either a single van or multi-van business.


For £10,000 + VAT you will receive full training on all equipment servicing and running your business, ongoing support, bespoke equipment as well as preferential vehicle deals.
