Mod Pizza has opened its seventh and eighth locations in the Redmon and Sammamish areas of Seattle. Additionally, the company has announced plans to expand beyond Washington state within the year.
Mod Pizza has been expanding company-owned stores for the past four years.
"We have been operating in 'quiet mode' painstakingly fine tuning and validating our business to position ourselves for smart growth. Since we have been operating, so many new brands have emerged across the country in this same niche which only serves to validate the opportunity that exists," said co-founder Scott Svenson. "We now feel we are in a position to expand into other states. We will continue to evaluate other growth opportunities and strategic partnerships to maintain our leadership role in this niche."
The Mod Pizza concept was conceived in Seattle 2007 by Northwest natives and husband and wife team Ally and Scott Svenson who sold their coffee business in the United Kingdom, Seattle Coffee Company, to Starbucks in 1998.
Mod Pizza Redmond is located in the Bella Bottega shopping center at 8900 161 Ave NE, Suite 165. Mod Pizza Sammamish is located at 2283 NE 8th St. in the Sammamish Highlands Shopping Center. Both locations average 2,400 square feet and have outdoor seating, 800 degree display ovens, party space and beer and wine. Hours are 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily.
