Johnson is a member of the Red Lake Band of Chippewa Indians and is the chief investment officer for Ho-Chuck, Inc., an economic development firm created by the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska.
Johnson currently lives in Iowa City.
Bemidji’s Pizza Ranch will open on Jan. 16 and will also include the FunZone arcade element of the franchise that operates largely in Minnesota and the Dakotas.
