The International Franchise Expo in June drew crowds from over 100 countries around the world. Filta was proud to share our franchise vision with the attendees and were honored to be so well received at this extremely successful show. They presented a bold vision for growth throughout the Northeastern United States including franchises in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and New England. In addition to expansion within the US, we have plans for future growth in Central and South America. Between the booth and the Filta van at the venue entrance, they received a lot of traffic at the expo.
If anyone is looking for a franchise opportunity with significant room for growth, they should consider growing with Filta. Currently, Filta is making a big push to strengthen its franchise network with strong franchisees that have plans to develop multi-unit territories. Thanks to the high volume of traffic they received at the International Franchise Expo, Filta is now getting fully booked for the next few months of discovery days. These are special appointments held at the Filta Orlando offices. During discovery days, potential franchisees have an opportunity to learn more about the business and the services offered by Filta. A typical discovery day includes an opportunity to:
- Meet with a local Franchise Owner
- See a live demonstration in a working kitchen
- Meet with Filta’s Founders, Executives and Corporate Support Staff
- Tour Corporate Offices, Training Center and Warehouse Facilities
- Discuss Future Products & Services (including a peek into a newly outfitted van)
- Question and Answer Session with Filta’s CEO
- Receive Franchise Disclosure Document
Filta has had a successful business since 1996, making it easy for franchises to duplicate their success. There are three things a potential franchisee must have in order to guarantee success. Candidates will need to be able to follow a proven system that Filta has perfected over many years. They will also need to have the ability to sell these services to area businesses, or the ability to hire and manage someone to sell these services. Lastly, they will need some capital to get the business started on the right foot with proper equipment, supplies, and marketing. To make the process even easier, Filta offers special incentives for honorably discharged veterans, international franchise resale opportunities, and home based franchise options.
Here’s what Adam Blake, VP Franchise Development, had to say about our recent success at the International Franchise Expo: "The 2013 International Franchise Expo was a tremendous success. We met with qualified candidates from all around the US, and all around the world. Attendees were able to speak to over 400 different franchisors, franchise attorneys, lenders and vendors from other industries as well. We will undoubtedly be expanding our footprint as a result of this event and we are already signed up for next year."
