8th May 2011

Every business person dreams about finding a virtually untapped market, with a residual income stream – which is exactly what PuriFry is offering in the fryer management industry where 99% of the potential market in the UK goes un-serviced!

PuriFry is a vibrant company providing the most extensive service available in fryer management, enabling its franchise owners to generate an income in excess of £50,000 per annum from a single shift servicing a small customer base of 25-30 clients on a weekly or twice weekly repeat service basis. With a relatively low capital outlay this van based service is operated from your own home and has the flexibility to be run during the hours that suit you, with servicing opportunities available 24hrs per day, 7 days per week as single or multi van management operations.

The PuriFry Franchise opportunity

As with all industry sectors at the moment, caterers in hotels, restaurants, fast food outlets, hospitals, colleges, cafes, factories and schools are looking to reduce their operating costs, exactly where PuriFry steps in by providing its Fryer Management Service. Cooking oil has seen unprecedented price rises in recent years, more than doubling in price over the last five to well over £1 per litre, with even relatively small kitchens using in excess of 100 litres per week and the largest locations up to 500 litres per week. This is a considerable cost in what is a consumable/disposable product. However, introducing the PuriFry service could reduce this consumption by up to 50 per cent, making reductions in operating costs even after paying for our service, how? Our specialised filtration equipment extracts the oil from the fryer, whilst the fryer is hygienically cleaned our bespoke equipment purifies and clarifies the cooking oil allowing it to be returned to the now spotless fryer for further use, instead of being dumped. The result? Reduced oil consumption, reduced costs, reduced waste, reduced staff hours, improved cleanliness, improved Health & Safety, improved work environment, no end of life oil left on site (Its removed and sold!) and a very happy customer, all from as little as only 30 minutes on site.

But PuriFry Franchisees are not limited to our core service, in addition to Fryer Management as a Franchisee Partner you would also have the opportunity to provide a number of Bolt On services, enabling you to generate extra revenue – without adding extra working hours to the day, and making the most of the valuable relationship that has been built with your customer base. Knife Sharpening is a service widely used by caterers, now available from PuriFry, ensuring that their knives are razor sharp and ready for slicing to the most demanding of standards. Decarbonising tank Rental is also available to aid in carbon removal from pots, pans, grills, racks and cooker tops, helping customers to meet ever increasing demands by Environmental Health for cleanliness, whilst reducing related staff and chemical costs and improving Health & Safety. Does your customer need cleaning chemicals or Chefs Whites? Not a problem they can be delivered on your next visit. Extra revenue for you, and extra benefits for the customer.
