Monster Tree Service Awards Territory in Northern Rhode Island

John Parra Brings Nation’s First and Fastest-Growing Tree Service Franchise to Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield, Johnston, and Surrounding Areas

July 11, 2019 // // CUMBERLAND, R.I. - Monster Tree Service, the nation’s first and fastest-growing tree service franchise, is expanding to Northern Rhode Island. Recently featured by SUCCESS magazine, Thrive Global, and Franchise Times, the Monster Tree Service franchise continues to build on its rapid three-year franchise system growth.

Business entrepreneur John Parra has purchased the rights to a Monster Tree Service Territory in Northern Rhode Island, covering Cumberland, Lincoln, Smithfield, Johnston, and surrounding areas. Parra aims to officially launch his business in early July. Parra is a seasoned professional in the area of tree care. Drawing on his experience working on his father’s tree farm in Brazil, Parra is excited to continue his family’s legacy in the tree business.

Parra first came to the United States in 1990, while traveling during a break from college. He made Rhode Island his home after getting married and starting a family. He worked for 15 years in the restaurant industry, and then changed careers, working in finance for two major investment firms. Parra is excited for his next career goal, bringing a successful business and quality tree care to his community.

“I am so excited to join the Monster Tree Service team,” says Parra. “I have always loved nature and working outside. I’m looking forward to this new chapter as a small-business owner. I have developed a tight-knit team of tree care professionals that’s like working in a big family. We can’t wait to get started.”

Josh Skolnick, CEO and Founder of Monster Tree Service, is confident that Parra will be a tremendous asset to the Monster Tree Service franchise.

“John is a perfect fit for the Monster Tree Service brand,” says Skolnick. “He has an incredible work ethic, an unparalleled drive to succeed and a keen understanding of business. We are very glad to have him on our team. I can’t wait to see his growth in the coming years.”

Monster Tree Service is the only franchise tree company capitalizing on the under-served $17 billion tree service industry. Monster Tree Service has achieved consistent year-over-year, 5 percent growth since 2009, resulting in a $10+ million business. Because it’s a high-upside opportunity, and a recession-proof business, Monster Tree Service expects to achieve $100 million in sales by 2021.

“Growing up, I learned a lot from my father. His strong work ethic and love of the outdoors is still with me today. Our family farm raised pine and eucalyptus trees that were eventually turned into pulp and then exported to the United States to make cardboard. Even before I made Rhode Island my home, I felt like I had a connection to this country. I’m very proud to offer Northern Rhode Island our wide array of services, including tree and limb removal, plant health care, tree maintenance, and more.”
