Our suppliers Franchise Fitout Services

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Monday, November 23, 2015

Franchise Fitout Services was established in 1999 and is located on the south-side of Brisbane, Queensland.

FFS are the sole Australian Importer and Distributor for Blendtec commercial and domestic Blendtec Blender range. Blendtec Blenders are used world wide and highly recommended in the hospitality trade as well as the domestic market.

About Blendtec®

Long before the Will It Blend? series exploded on YouTube, Tom Dickson, the founder of Blendtec®, was blending planks of wood with his blenders to determine their capability. Not surprising for this engineer and inventor, who grew up putting big engines in little things.

Back in 1975, Tom’s curiosity peaked when he used a vacuum cleaner to clean up some spilled wheat kernels. His innate inquisitiveness drove him to revolutionise the home wheat milling industry, taking it from stone grinding to his patented stainless steel milling heads. Like most inventors, Tom didn’t stop there. He envisioned the perfect mixer, using the freshly milled flour from his mill to make wholesome bread in minutes. When back in the lab, Tom developed an auto knead feature, enabling the mixer to knead the dough, develop the gluten and turn off automatically when finished. Tom continued to improve the mixer and decided to add a blender with a square jar, rather than the conventional round jar. As Tom expanded his mill and mixer business, new ideas developed. He enhanced the blender and began developing commercial blending machines just as the smoothie era began.

The award winning web video series called "Will It Blend?" features Blendtec’s® C.E.O., Tom Dickson, blending an iPhone, marbles, rake handles, and all sorts of crazy things. The videos show the strength and durability of the entry level home blender. The same durability and strength is found in all our commercial blenders.

Tom is still inventing and the company is still growing! Walking into the world of Blendtec®, you’ll find the innovative engineering team and their "torture chamber", you’ll see the international team preparing for where their travels will take them next, and you’ll glimpse Tom scooting off to blend up his next invention.

Today, people all around the world use Blendtec® blenders in their homes, restaurants, smoothie shops, coffee shops and more. We continue to keep dreaming of new and better ways to build machines that improve the lives of others. It all began with one man and his curiosity. He has shared that vision with others, and with his team, the dream continues to unfold.

Blendtec Australia Pty Ltd, is the Australian Blendtec® Distributor of the world famous Blendtec® Blenders. All Blendtec® blenders are imported into Australia direct from USA, and are built with parts specifically designed and manufactured for use within the Australian market.

Vitamix can reduce costs and increase profits for your business

Vitamix can reduce costs and increase profits for your business


Creating smoother, quieter blends in a single cycle and global consistency across thousands of chain locations.

100% Chunk Free Blends

Vitamix machines offer 100% chunk-free blends unlike our competition where re-blending was required 50% of the time*. 100% chunk free means that only one blend is necessary meaning faster more consistent results. Our customers have seen up to a 35% faster service time when they switched to Vitamix.

Only 3dBA

3dBA – At its loudest, The Quiet One® is just 3dBA above a normal conversation.*


Intuitive controls, pre-programmed settings, and patented designs virtually eliminate user error and improve speed of service.

Faster Pouring

The patented Advance® Container poured thick shakes in 8 seconds compared to the competition who took 17 seconds. That’s up to a 50% faster pour.*

Faster Cleaning

The Vitamix is extremely easy and fast to clean. The time spent disassembling and cleaning a Vitamix takes 10 seconds compared to the competition, which can take up to almost 3 minutes!*


Premium equipment delivers low maintenance costs and maximum up time.


Over a 5 year period our customers have needed to make repairs to less than 5% of their over 1,200 machines and replaced zero containers.**


The Vitamix runs 30% cooler than the competition resulting in a machine that will stand the test of time.*


Some warranties limit based on cycle count. This can mean your warranty runs out in as little as 9 months depending on how much you use it. Every Vitamix comes with a 3 year warranty that has no restriction on how many times you use your blenders.***

That means $0 dollars spent on key components like containers and motors for a full 3 years no matter how much you use it.


Since consumable parts are covered by Vitamix warranty for 3 years, we can calculate your average cost per blend with just 2 basic numbers.

Operating Assumptions

Blends per year 16,425 (45 per day, based on typical high volume usage.)
5-Year Blender cost $2,606 [Recommended Retail as at July 2015]
$2,606 / 16,425 / 5 Years = $0.032 Average Cost Per Blend

The Quietest Commercial Blender in the World

Posted by: Sydney Commercial Kitchens |  Friday, October 24, 2014

Blendtec's Commercial Stealth Blender

Powerful and quiet. Now you can have both.

Blendtec Stealth Blender

Blend at the level of normal conversation. A powerful blender is no good if it drives your customers away. The Blendtec Stealth boasts an industry leading 2160 Watt motor, yet it is the quietest commercial blender in the business.

From the beginning, Blendtec has defined the cutting edge in kitchen technology and this tradition continues with the recent release of their newest commercial blender, the Blendtec Stealth™.

Through research and a relationships with foodservice leaders, it became clear that noise is still a huge factor in commercial settings. Blendtec decided that it was time to break the next sound barrier, so to speak. That was the primary driver behind engineering the Stealth.

Blendtec set out to make the Stealth about three decibels quieter than existing commercial blenders. In reality, they accomplished quite a bit better than that. Other objectives included adding advanced, user-friendly controls, USB programmability, and a sleek aesthetic.

The Quietest Commercial Blender

Aside from the fact that the Stealth is way quieter than any other commercial blender, the Stealth is the only one to feature a capacitive touch surface. It’s quite intuitive, the user can perform complex operations with little or no training. The touch surface provides quick access to customized blend cycles and also features a manual speed slider for precise motor control. Additionally, the touch surface is illuminated, making it ideal for low-light environments. Another significant feature of the Stealth is its USB port, which makes customised programming a breeze.


What is the Blendtec Stealth blender?

Simply put, the Stealth is the quietest commercial blender out there. On top of that, it’s also one of the coolest. It incorporates technology that’s never been seen before in the commercial blending industry. They believe it is the most advanced, user-friendly blender that has ever been made.

Advanced, illuminated touch control surface.

The Stealth offers an industry first: an illuminated, capacitive- touch control surface. It’s highly intuitive and features a slider control for the most advanced, fine-tuned motor control ever.

Blend Wizard online programming tool.

You can now go online to create your own customized blend cycles. Add your own motor speeds and durations, and then download them to your USB device.

Versatile USB interface.

Keeping the Stealth updated and current with your latest menu programming is easy. Simply download the programming to a USB drive and distribute to all your blenders at the same time.

All Blendtec blenders are programmed with popular cycles that are perfect for many recipes. But extensive experience working in the commercial industry has shown that there’s no single blend cycle that fits every need and some customers want to customize their blend cycles. Stealth owners can hop online, use the Blend Wizard app to create their own blend cycles, and then download the cycles to a USB device. Then, simply plug the USB into the blender and upload the new programming. This feature is getting a lot of positive feedback, especially from large franchises that need to deploy custom menus quickly and accurately.

More Powerful Motors

Blendtec uses the most powerful motors in the commercial blending industry. For businesses, that means the smoothest, most consistent blends available.
