It seems like a LOT of the prospective filtration Zees fixate on the machine. Can I buy it? Who owns it? Which machine is better? That is NOT the issue. These people must not know anything about the restaurant business. Try googling on "restaurant fry oil filtration" or something similar and LOTS of filtration machines come up. You will never convince an experienced restaurant operator that your proprietary machine is so much better that this alone makes it worthwhile to use you.
What you will be selling is a SERVICE. You will come and filter for them so that they don't have to. If you want to be in the filtration service business, you do NOT have to buy a franchise to obtain a filtration machine. The machine is NOT the issue. (And BTW, it is fry OIL, NOT "grease".)
