Scott and Ally Svenson revolutionized British coffee culture with the founding of Seattle Coffee Company in 1995 (selling it to Starbucks in 1998). They then helped launch and build the Carluccio’s brand. Upon returning to the US, they pioneered a similarly innovative category within pizza with the opening of the first MOD in 2008. They have now set their sights upon changing how pizza is consumed in the UK and sharing their commitment to creating not just a cool place to eat, but an inspired place to work.
Sir Charles Dunstone founded Carphone Warehouse and TalkTalk Telecom, and introduced the UK to Five Guys in 2013 to rave reviews. On the opportunity to help build MOD in the UK, Sir Charles stated, “With its compelling combination of superior food quality, value, speed and its culture of leveraging the business as a platform to do good, I believe MOD will translate extremely well across the United Kingdom. As one of the fastest growing food concepts in the United States, I see a tremendous opportunity for MOD to disrupt the UK pizza scene with its ‘super fast’ pizza experience.”
