Introducing another member of our very carefully-selected Breakfast Lunch & Deener Brand Ambassador Team: Marco Palermo! Marco has been chosen because he GENUINELY loves what we offer, and truly EMBODIES the CORE VALUES that Breakfast Lunch & Deener represents!
Marco is incredibly hard-working, self-motivated, intelligent, and kind. In 2016, after graduating high school, Marco had trouble finding a job, so he created his own: Marco's Mowing, a full-service lawn care, maintenance, and landscaping service for Thunder Bay residents. In addition to his business venture, Marco is a student at Lakehead University studying Finance & Accounting.
Over the past few years, Marco has had an admirable wrestling career, representing Team Canada at multiple championships, including most recently at the U23 World Championship in Budapest, Hungary. His athletic abilities and dedication to the sport have resulted in numerous distinctions and awards such as Athlete of the Year 2X, National University Sport Gold Medalist 2X, OFSAA Champion 4X, Rookie of the Year, just to name a few.
At only 21 years-old, Marco is a top-student, decorated varsity athlete, landlord, and a successful local entrepreneur! While Marco's accomplishments are remarkable, to say the least, we believe he is successful not just because of the things he has done, but also the person that he is. Marco is known by his friends and by his community as an approachable, genuine, and supportive person, who leads by example and isn't afraid of working hard. We admire and respect Marco for these qualities.
We also really appreciate how supportive Marco has been towards Breakfast Lunch & Deener. "It is an honour to be a part of a growing company that supports health and wellness."
"Breakfast Lunch & Deener makes it possible for me to be a successful student-athlete and entrepreneur. As an athlete, nutrition is very important to me. What I put into my body helps fuel for my workouts. The problem is that I am so busy that I sometimes don’t have time to cook and prepare healthy meals. With BLD, I don’t have to worry about spending time to prep my food each week. I can focus on being a good student, a good athlete, and a successful entrepreneur."
