CEO Tom Dunn

“We are extraordinarily proud of our 2024 ranking,” said Filta CEO Tom Dunn. “After all, we moved up 50 plus slots in just a year’s time. We are grateful for this recognition from Entrepreneur. But we’re not at all surprised because each one of our local franchise owners puts in the hard work daily. Our staff in our Orlando support center does as well. We are excited about showcasing our capabilities in commercial kitchens across the nation this year. We aim to surpass our achievements and attain an even more impressive rank by 2025.”

What Filta Does

Filta makes commercial kitchens faster, greener, safer, and cleaner. We do this by micro-filtering cooking oil and providing bin-free waste oil collection. Additionally, we’re deep cleaning fryers, and recycling waste oil for biodiesel fuel. Nationwide, we serve customers ranging from independent, chain, and franchised restaurants. Our service doesn’t stop there. We also work in commercial kitchens inside hospitals, hotels, groceries, universities, casinos, business facilities, stadiums (MLB, NBA, NCAA, NFL, NHL, etc.), and more.

Filta Named a Top Franchise Entrepreneur 500

“Every brand on the Franchise 500 has its own unique story, but they all collectively make the same statement: franchising is strong and resilient, is full of innovation and opportunity, and provides a powerful entrepreneurial path for many people,” says Jason Feifer, editor in chief of Entrepreneur magazine. “Our 45th annual ranking is full of companies with fresh ideas, exciting business models, cultural sway, and the kind of business sophistication that will define the next 45 years and beyond.”
