Spring-Green recognizes franchisee for excellence


Spring-Green honored Virginia-based franchisee Charlie Marshall at the company’s National Training Conference in Bloomingdale, Ill., earlier this month. Selected from a national network of franchise owners, Marshall was presented with the Founders Award, the highest receivable recognition for a member of the Spring-Green franchise system.

“Spring-Green created a Founders Award many years ago to recognize the characteristics, values and efforts of a franchise owner who stands out from his peers. Charlie holds his business to a very high standard and is extremely deserving of this award,” said Ted Hofer, CEO of Spring-Green Lawn Care, which is based in Plainfield, Ill.

Previous winners include Bill Gundlach from Cicero, Ill. (1994), Rod Reining from Olympia, Wash. (1997), Roger Grose from Marietta, Ohio (2000), Jim Richards from Minonk, Ill. (2002) and Rick Hoover from Yorkville, Ill. (2007).

A franchisee for more than 15 years, Marshall serves clients throughout Fairfax, Prince William and Northern Stafford counties and has been a member of Spring-Green’s franchise advisory boards for several years.

“I’m very humbled to receive the Founders Award,” Marshall said. “It’s an honor to be recognized for my contributions to the growth of the company.”
