Super-fast pizza chain MOD heading for intu Metrocentre later this year

MOD Pizza is one of the US’s fastest-growing pizza chains and it’s on its way to the intu Metrocentre in time for Christmas.

MOD Super Fast Pizza first opened its doors in downtown Seattle in 2008 and is now set to open in the Qube at the Metrocentre in early November.

It was founded by Scott and Ally Svenson and inspired by their love of authentic Italian street pizza and the UK Mod movement of the 60s and 70s.

They wanted to create a place where busy families, like theirs, could go for a quick, delicious and affordable meal. The original super fast pizza was born and it took off like a rocket.

The MOD brand is being brought to the UK in a joint-venture with Sir Charles Dunstone, who is best known for founding Carphone Warehouse, and Roger Taylor, who is a former director of TalkTalk Group.

Scott and Ally Svenson had spent more than a decade living and working in the UK, where they founded the Seattle Coffee Company, before selling the business to Starbucks.

Today, MOD Pizza can be found in more than 125 locations across 16 states. MOD’s individual pizzas are made on demand with fresh-pressed dough and sauces, allowing customers to create their own pizzas and salads.
