FiltaFry is pleased to announce its number 26 ranking on Franchise Times magazine’s annual “Fast 55” list, which recognizes the top movers in year-over-year franchise growth.
“Franchise Times is the leading franchise industry publication and its ‘Fast 55’ list is the standard by which young, fast-growing franchise companies are measured,” said Jason Sayers, CEO of FiltaFry. “We are one of only five companies to make the list for the past three years. In fact, we are also the only company who has been on the list for three consecutive years to move higher this year. The FiltaFry management team has an unparalleled understanding of what is needed to enable any individual who has the desire, enthusiasm and determination to become a successful franchise owner. Franchise Times recognizes what we’ve known all along: FiltaFry provides a quality service with huge growth and market potential.”
