Mike Switzer interviews Keaton Green, a vice president with Frampton Construction in Ladson, SC.

We continue to hear from our state’s economists that the construction business has been booming through this pandemic. And that’s why we were not surprised when we saw who won the award for the fastest growing company in our state in the large company category in the SCBizNews Roaring Twenties awards program for 2020.

Mike Switzer interviews Keaton Green, a vice president with Frampton Construction in Ladson, SC.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
