Breakfast Moms – Marian


Have you met Marian?

Marian and her sister, Angela, own and operate our Park Lawn & Lake Shore, Etobicoke Sunset Grill. The dynamic duo has been serving up tasty eats in the Humber Bay Shores community for a little over a year now.

Marian’s a new mom to 10-month-old Joey – without question the cutest, most charming addition to the Sunset Grill family. Even the regulars know and love Joey and his dancing Elmo sidekick.

Marian has always been a family-first kind of person, a value passed down by her mother, Litza, who raised Marian and her sisters on her own. “Mom is our world,” she says affectionately.

She comes from an Early Childhood Education (ECE) background, and before she opened her own Sunset Grill, she used to serve at our Stockyards location on weekends.

Now that she’s a mom, she often finds herself bonding with guests that are also mothers, connecting over the nuances of being a new parent. There’s a lot of sleepless nights in that job description, no doubt, however, Joey makes it seem easy.

Some of her kitchen staff members are also new parents; a common bond that has been forged between their tight-knit group.

Right now, Marian is enjoying her Friday music classes with Joey and is looking forward to her first Mother’s Day as a new mom. This June, she’s visiting Aruba to celebrate a milestone birthday, thanks, in part, to the flexibility Sunset Grill has provided her as a Franchise Owner, and her amazing husband Darryl for planning the trip.

Looking towards the future, Marian would love to travel more and one day take Joey to visit Greece or Malta to connect with his roots.

“Whatever is meant to be, will be,” she says.

The next time you stop by for breakfast or lunch at our Lake Shore & Park Lawn, Etobicoke Sunset Grill, be sure to say hi to Marian!
