Company kicks off year with milestone opening
MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC (“MOD Pizza” or “MOD”) announced it will open its 200th store this month, reflecting a doubling of the Company’s footprint in just under a year. In 2016, MOD added 100 stores and over 1,900 jobs system-wide, while expanding into six new US markets – Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Ohio, South Carolina and Wisconsin – and making its international debut in the UK. The Company’s milestone location, MOD Westview Promenade, in Frederick, Md., is slated to open on Tuesday, January 31, 2017.
“At MOD our mission is simple: we make pizza so we can serve people. We celebrate our growth, and the opening of our 200th store, because it highlights how many Squad members have joined the MOD family. We now have over 4,000 passionate MOD Squad members who are energized by the belief that a company can succeed when putting its people first,” said Scott Svenson, co-founder and CEO of MOD. “Thanks to the support of our loyal customers, we’re able to continue our growth, bringing new jobs into more communities and allowing us to support important grassroots causes across the US. Last year alone, we partnered with more than 185 local charities in communities we serve, donating over $650,000 to organizations supporting at-risk youth and families.”
To mark its 200 store milestone, MOD will be celebrating with a special event on Tuesday, January 24, 2017. For the entire day, at all locations, MOD will be thanking customers by offering $2.00 off of all MOD-size pizzas and salads.
MOD currently has locations in 20 states, including Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, as well as five locations in the UK.
MOD Pizza was founded in Seattle in 2008 by entrepreneurs Scott and Ally Svenson. MOD’s individual artisan-style pizzas and salads are made on demand, empowering customers to choose any combination of over 30 toppings, all for one set price. At the core of MOD is a purpose-led culture that’s committed to being a force for good in the community – creating not only a cool place to eat, but an inspired place to work.
