Filta Environmental Kitchen Solutions (Filta) has tapped Jessy Perrone to the position of inside sales manager. With nearly 13 years of sales experience, Perrone will lead Filta’s industry-leading corporate initiative to support its nearly 150 franchisees nationwide as they build robust networks of prospects and clients.
Perrone will lead Filta’s four-person inside sales team as they support franchise owners nationwide. Filta’s inside sales business model is unique in the franchise industry because it vets and feeds prospects to local owners so they can constantly acquire new business opportunities without losing focus of their daily client duties and deliverables. His position as inside sales manager is key to the growth of relationships between the franchise’s Orlando headquarters and its nearly 150 individual franchise owners in 44 states and Canada and their clients.
“Jessy comes to us with deep personal and management sales experience and recently led a team of 70 to success,” said Rob Totten, Filta’s COO. “Not only does he bring strong problem solving, people and team-building skills to the table, Jessy is highly relatable. This unique combination of traits makes him particularly qualified and able to work with franchise owners and take the sales burden of sales off them, freeing them up to work in client kitchens.”
Filta makes commercial kitchens safer, more efficient and more environmentally sustainable by micro-filtering existing cooking oil, providing bin-free waste oil collection, deep cleaning fryers, and recycling waste oil. Customers range from single and chain restaurants to commercial kitchens inside casinos, hospitals, hotels, groceries, universities, business facilities, stadiums (NFL, NCAA, MLB, NHL), and more. The brand has expanded its kitchen services into humidity control for cold storage and grease-free drain foams, making it a recognized environmental leader in the restaurant and hospitality industry. Through its network of thousands of commercial kitchens it services weekly, Filta has recycled nearly 1 billion pounds of used cooking oil into bio-diesel, significantly reducing the impact of fryer oil on the environment.
An Orlando native, Perrone and his long-time girlfriend care for their young son, who was born prematurely and still needs a feeding tube, despite now being a toddler. Perrone is an antique car buff and works on restoring his 1972 Camaro when he’s not fishing, watching sports or spending time with his young family.
Filta is a home-based, multi-service, multi-van franchise system offering entrepreneurs a predictable revenue stream model built on weekly repeat business within exclusive territories. With minimal overhead, marginal equipment and a customer base that is easily scalable, Filta franchisees are well-positioned for success largely because they benefit from the robust corporate-based inside sales support team – which Perrone now leads — designed to help franchisees acquire new business opportunities in their territories in addition to recruiting technicians to service clients.
