Edible Skinny Does MOD PIzza

Edible Skinny Does MOD Pizza
By Kat Thomas

Have a Slice Day!  Edible Skinny was lucky enough to introduce our newest contributors Kathleen Berry and Letty Thomas to the world of Fast Casual pizza dining with MOD Pizza!

Founded in Seattle, Washington, in 2008, MOD has more than 400 locations in the United States and United Kingdom.  The acronym "MOD" in the company's name stands for "Made on Demand."  Restaurant trade publication QSR News (Quick-Service and Fast Casual Restaurant News and Information) has characterized the concept as the "Chipotle of the pizza industry."

MOD was founded in 2008 by husband and wife, Scott and Ally Svenson, in their hometown of Seattle.  After moving back to their hometown of Bellevue, Washington, the Svensons started MOD Pizza after being unable to find fast, affordable healthy meals for their four sons.  The Svensons previously founded Seattle Coffee Company, a successful UK-based coffee company that sold to Starbucks in 1998.  The couple started to wonder if there were a better way of doing pizza, and business.

MOD Pizza offers individual, artisan style pizzas, which are baked for approximately three minutes in an 800-degree Fahrenheit (425 °C) pizza oven.  Customers can build their own pizza or salad, which cost the same no matter how many toppings they choose. MOD also offers 9 classic pizzas, a pizza salad, and a seasonal pizza and salad.  MOD’s pizzas and salads are offered in three different sizes: Mini, MOD, and Mega.

So here's to life being delicious, all your moments being postcard worthy, and whatever you choose to put on top, we know that MOD Pizza will always have a pizza of your heart! ;-)
