Amusement Parks Coast to Coast Go Green with Filta

When Filta launched its Franchise system in the U.S. in 2002, large commercial kitchens inside stadiums, universities, restaurants, and corporate employee cafeterias were the standard client base, but just recently amusement parks have been high on Filta’s radar with several notable successes.

Recently InPark Magazine published a feature profiling how Filta is saving money, time and the valuable resource of oil for theme parks nationwide like Hersheypark in Pennsylvania, Wild Waves Theme and Waterpark in Seattle, LEGOLAND, Trader’s Village in Houston, and many more.

In that magazine article, Michelle Phy, revenue manager at Alabama Adventure & Splash Adventure shared that “Filta has been cleaning our fryers for over two years…Filta comes in, gets the job done and leaves the restaurants cleaner than when they started.”

And Olivia Haist, concessions manager for Hersheypark, noted her park maintains oil quality for longer periods of time thanks to filtration and that’s a win not only for the environment but for savings all around in the Pennsylvania park.

“At the end of each year we get to see how our partnership has had a positive impact on efforts like reducing greenhouse gasses and saving in packaging,” Haist said.

These positives were all shared just last week at the annual Amusement & Theme Park Food Service Conference Trade Show hosted by Cedar Fair in Sandusky, Ohio. Towanda Crawley-Taylor (National Accounts Manager), Ben Gofton (Business Development Representative) and Melissa Smith-Hignite (VP of Sales and Marketing for the Cedar Point-area Franchise) were the Filta executives that met with a host of attendees to share how filtration saves not only time and money for kitchens but has also a huge positive impact on the environment and increases a park’s sustainability footprint.

Representatives from King’s Dominion, Carowinds, and Cedar Point all met with the Filta team in Ohio and the team is looking forward to sharing more about how filtration, filtration, filtration is the name of the game for winning in amusement parks.
