FiltaFry Franchisee Andy Knight Launches Second Van

In October 2015 Andy Knight attended the National Franchise Exhibition looking for a new opportunity and the chance to run his own franchise.

FiltaFry - Andy KnightAndy remembers that FiltaFry stood out after being met with openness, honesty and an understanding from the franchise manager, Damian Slater, and explains how he felt like he was stuck working in similar roles with little chance of progression following University. He quickly learnt that FiltaFry could offer him exactly what he was looking for.

Andy Knight explains:
"FiltaFry offered me what I needed; business ownership, daily challenge and the things I used to enjoy at work like a constantly changing environment".

Andy was initially apprehensive about taking the plunge and running his own franchise, stating:
"I had signed all the forms and had lots of sleepless nights as to whether I’d made a huge mistake".

However, he was soon put at ease by the extensive training the company provided for him. Andy recalls:
"I was given the opportunity to spend the day with an existing franchisee to see if it was right for me and also if I could do it. This gave me a more in-depth knowledge in order to be able to ask more questions, all of which were all answered".

Nearly two successful years on and Andy's customer base has grown significantly and includes a variety of customers such as restaurants, hotels, school canteens and manufacturers. The days can be tiring and long, but as he states:
"The time flies and it does not seem like work at all".

Andy’s significant growth has recently allowed him to hire his first employee enabling him to now run a multi-van operation and expand to more clients across the CV postcode. When asked what his future plans are, Andy explains:
"To continue the expansion of my current postcode and then look to purchase other local territories and take more of a management role".

Throughout all of the transitions that Andy has faced, he praises FiltaFry for their on-going support and reliability. He concludes by stating:
"I felt that I had everything I needed on my first day and was raring to go and succeed”.” I know that I’m not on my own at all and if I had any issues there are people on hand to help me".
