Michael Falzone (50) is a life-long Revere resident. He was born in Revere to John and Natala (Marabello) Falzone. He attended Revere Public Schools and graduated from Northeast Metropolitan Regional High School in 1983.
In 1988, Michael received a Bachelor’s in Engineering from Wentworth Institute of Technology. Michael is the proud dad of three boys; Gianni (23), Nicholas (21), and Christian (16) and resides on South Ave with his wife Jessica. Jessica is a pre-school teacher and liaison to the Department of Early Education and Care.
At the young age of 12, Michael started a paper route in the Franklin Avenue area. At the age of fifteen he began to work at a butcher shop on Shirley Avenue where he learned the importance of customer service.
Mike’s father immigrated to the US in the late 1950s and immediately found work in construction. He worked as a laborer for the next 15 years. Unfortunately, he suffered two ruptured discs while on the job. Instead of applying for assistance, he got a less physical job making pizza at Anna’s Pizza on Revere Beach where he worked for 6 years. However, John saw opportunity and together with his entrepreneurial spirit opened his own business in 1978 in Chelsea, MA – John’s Pizza. John owned and operated John’s Pizza for more than 20 years and Michael worked alongside his dad on weekends and during the summer school breaks. It was during this time that Michael learned the value of hard work and dedication from his dad.
Michael worked for AAndrea, an engineering company, upon graduation from Wentworth for about one year. He quickly realized that his passion was running his own business and in 1990 purchased John’s Pizza from his dad. Michael still owns and operates John’s Pizza today and has taken it to a completely new level.
Michael has been a member of several organizations, including; the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce, the Jordan Boys and Girls Club, and Centro Latino, where he was able to use his community advocate talents to support the immigrant community and honor his parents’ immigrant experience.
Mike has been a member of the Chelsea Rotary Club since 1995, has served as president, and runs the Annual Pot-of Gold fundraiser, which raises over $12,000 for college scholarships for students. In 2009, Michael was honored as the Rotarian of the Year.
In 2014 Michael was appointed to the Revere Tornado Relief Fund to help raise and administer funds aimed at helping the dozens of families that lost their homes and businesses or had extensive property damage. Michael cares deeply about people and is passionate about helping them solve their problems.
