A Philly beard deserves a Philly brand.

Meet the Team

Maximilian Wengyn

Max is a senior at the University of Pennsylvania studying Biology.  He is from Bucks County, and has been bearded since February 2015.  He founded Broad Street Beard Company in order to combine two of his passions, beards and philanthropy.  He hopes to unite the diverse population of bearded men in Philadelphia behind a powerful brand with a positive impact.

Before Broad Street Beard Co., he served as the development coordinator for Penn’s chapter of Camp Kesem, and was tasked with funding a nonprofit summer camp for children affected by a parent’s cancer.  He currently works in a leukemia research laboratory.

Max chose The CHOP Foundation as Broad Street Beard Company’s charity recipient because of gratitude he feels on behalf of his late brother, who spent many months of his life being treated by the doctors and nurses at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. 

After graduation, Max hopes to continue building the brand and making an impact on the Philadelphia community while applying to medical school.

 Nick Cardillo

Bearded since the day he graduated his conservative high school, where he was told day in and day out to shave his facial hair to meet dress code policy, Nick claims to have only shaven once - and that was the worst day of his life. With a degree from West Chester University of Pennsylvania, Nick has a knack for helping build brands. When he isn't busy with Broad Street Beard Co. or running his digital marketing company, he is probably lost in the woods or day dreaming about elusive east coast waves. "The opportunity to bond and find common ground are the root of all of my passions. As is giving back to the community. You are truly only as strong as those that surround you and I'm looking forward to finding more ways to be of service."
