Today, The Filta Group, well known for its mobile-based fryer management and eco-friendly commercial kitchen services, announced that it will be expanding its offerings to the Canadian market. Marius Kerkhoff and Daniel Overbeek, two Canadian businessmen with a combined 30-plus years in the market, have been selected to lead the way and were awarded the first franchise agreement in Canada.
“We are very pleased to award our first Canadian franchise to Marius Kerkhoff and Daniel Overbeek. They possess a vast knowledge of the market and a great business acumen. Not to mention, unwavering enthusiasm for the Filta brand. We couldn’t have chosen a better team to represent The Filta Group in Canada. I have no doubt they will be excellent ambassadors for the brand and help us grow exponentially in the region,” said Jason Sayers, CEO for The Filta Group.
This announcement marks a very important milestone for The Filta Group, which was established with a single cooking oil filtration machine in the UK and now services over 5,000 commercial kitchens a week and operates in over 15 different countries.
The first Canadian franchise, operated by Kerkhoff and Overbeek, is based out of the Woodstock area in Southwestern Ontario and begins servicing customers this week. The local franchise offers Filta’s full line of mobile-based services including FiltaFry, FiltaBio, FiltaGold, FiltaCool, and FiltaDrain. FiltaFry is the company’s flagship service and is the ideal solution for restaurants looking to extend the life of their cooking oil, improve food quality, reduce liability, and decrease their impact on the environment.
“We are honored and excited to be pioneers for the Filta brand in Canada. We strongly believe in the company, services, and growth potential, and have a real passion for the business. The services we offer at Filta are unlike anything else in the world, no one else does what we do. We are especially looking forward to saving our customers time, reducing headaches, and improving employee safety and satisfaction,” said Marius Kerkhoff, Filta Canada Franchisee.
Kerkhoff and Overbeek are longtime residents of the Woodstock area and will be servicing local restaurants, universities, sporting venues, hospitals, and many more clients in Canada, who can benefit from Filta’s impressive portfolio of commercial kitchen services.
