Brad Johnson has a background in building and empowering teams.

Spring-Green Lawn Care, Plainfield, Illinois, named Brad Johnson as vice president of franchise operations.

Johnson is an operations professional who has a track record of building and empowering teams. He has spent the last 14 years with The Melting Pot Restaurant, and earlier in his career he had regional responsibility with the Starbucks Coffee and was also involved in the early stage evolution of the St. Louis Bread Company.

“I am thrilled to apply my many years of franchise operations experience to a recession-proof service brand as respected as the Spring-Green name is. I look forward to collaborating with the franchise family to drive Spring-Green commitment to enrich the quality of life in local neighborhoods and communities by delivering valued lawn and tree care services,” says Johnson.

“We are excited that Brad has joined our Spring-Green team,” says James Young, chief operating officer. “Brad’s experience with helping grow single unit operators into multi-unit franchise owners fits well with our strategic goals of growing Spring-Green’s average unit revenues from $1 million to $3 million. Brad understands how important our history is to us, how important or franchise owners are to us and how this family owned business places its core values ahead of winning at all costs. I believe Brad will quickly become a visible leader within our organization and help lead us into the future.”
