I spent 28 years in the hospitality industry as everything from a bus boy to an executive chef. I purchased my Filta Franchise because I was tired of working for somebody else, and wanted to do something on my own that would have something to do with and be beneficial to the food service industry. After only 7 months, I have two vans running and service restaurants, hospitals, country clubs, and other business and industry cafeterias, and I am barely scratching the surface of my Territory.

"I have been a franchise owner since April 2010 with steady growth in the Chicagoland area. The brand continues to gain traction within the food service industry and the addition of multiple service streams such as FiltaCool and FiltaBio to complement the FiltaFry service makes for increased profitability per stop and continued loyalty with our customers."
