Greens Manicure Service

Management Summary

Greens Manicure Service is owned and operated by Steve Greinthum. Steve was first introduced to lawn care while he was pursuing his bachelor’s degree in business from the University of Oregon. Steve worked for a large, well-respected landscaping company. He started out his freshman summer year as a mower operater. During his four years at school he eventually moved up to crew manager. 

Steve enjoyed taking care of lawns. He was always excited about working outside. He also liked the management responsibilities that he had his last summer. The one thing he longed for is operating his own company. He decided the only thing stopping him was money, he already had all the experience and knowledge necessary. So Steve got a loan from his parents and started the company.
