MOD to Donate $1.00 From Every Pizza Sold to Over 20 Local Charities
SEATTLE, WA–(Marketwired – November 12, 2014) – To continue their commitment to Spreading MODness, all MOD stores will donate $1.00 from every pizza sold during the week of November 25-30, 2014 to local charities. For the second year, food banks, meal programs, shelters and youth programs will benefit from Spreading MODness. Each charity was chosen by the local MOD Squads who are committed to building bridges and making a difference in the communities they serve.
“MOD exists to inspire. Not just with our pizza, but with our actions as well,” explained Scott Svenson, co-founder and CEO of MOD. “When we opened the first MOD store over six years ago, we set out to put people first, celebrating our MOD Squad, our customers and the communities we serve. In a response to our employees’ desire to connect with their communities, we try to provide as many opportunities as we can for our Squads to experience the joy and the inspiration that comes with giving back. With our growth, we expect to help twice, if not three times, the number of people as last year. Spreading MODness is all about making a positive impact and we intend to do this in a very big way.”
Spreading MODness will support over 20 charities in 7 cities. A few of the causes are:
|Seattle area:||Treehouse, Hopelink, Chicken Soup Brigade|
|Portland area:||Helping Hands, Oregon Food Bank|
|Houston:||Klein ISD Education Foundation, Houston Food Bank|
|Phoenix:||St Mary’s Food Bank, United Food Bank|
|Denver:||TLC Meals on Wheels|
|LA area:||Village Family Services, Irvine Schools Foundation|
|San Jose:||Second Harvest Food Bank|

MOD’s individual artisan-style pizzas are made on demand, using organic fresh-pressed dough and signature sauces. Guests can create their own pizzas and salads, using any combination of 30 featured toppings, or they can choose from a menu of MOD classics. Pizzas and salads are the same price regardless of the number of toppings. Pizzas are hand-cooked in an 800 degree oven in less than 3 minutes and salads are hand-tossed in front of the customer. MOD also serves local draft beers, wine, handspun milkshakes, and house-made lemonades and iced teas.
Seattle based MOD Pizza was founded in 2008 by Scott and Ally Svenson, and was inspired by the couple’s love of Italian street-style pizza, their desire for authentic, affordable and fast dining options for their busy family and the idea that a great company could be built around people. Above all, MOD is about putting people first and making a positive impact — with both employees and customers.
