With over 200 restaurants, MOD Pizza are a favourite in the US. They began back in 2008 when Scott and Ally Svenson, who also founded Seattle Coffee Company which was later sold to Starbucks, wanted to create a restaurant where busy families could easily go for an affordable, quick and delicious meal. By 2016, they were ready to introduce their fast casual offering to the UK with the help of Sir Charles Dunstone.
If you don’t know already, MOD, which stands for Made on Demand, is a superfast casual experience offering pizzas, made from scratch in front of customers for a set price with over 30 different toppings to choose from. This concept soared in the US and has seen many other restaurants adopt this idea for their own pizza offering.
Following the success of their first five sites, MOD have just opened their sixth site in Borehamwood Shopping Park with a new style MOD oven from Gozney Ovens, after extensive trialling at the Gozney Headquarters.
Although they are famed for their pizza concept, MOD have a purpose beyond pizza which is to bring positive change in the lives of their team members and surrounding communities. The launch of Borehamwood along with their 9th birthday, saw MOD donate £1 from every pizza sold to local charities.
