MOD PIZZA OPENS NEW LOCATION IN BLUE SPRINGS, MISSOURI
BLUE SPRINGS, MO. (April 12, 2017) – MOD Pizza (MOD), a Seattle-based fast-casual restaurant specializing in individual artisan-style pizzas and salads made on demand, today announced the opening of its newest location at 1112 NE. Coronado Drive in Blue Springs, Missouri. Owned by Womack Restaurants, a multi-concept restaurant franchise operator, the new location marks the second Womack owned restaurant in the Kansas City market.
MOD allows customers to create their own pizza and salads with unlimited toppings for just under eight dollars. Pizza and salads are passed through a line by employees, named the MOD Squad, and customers can request toppings they would like added. Pizzas are then quickly cooked in a brick-style oven and called out for pick-up at the register when complete.
“MOD offers a truly unique concept by serving customers their own, original creations, while still providing quick service. Everyone can get exactly what they want at no additional cost,” said Scott Womack, president of Womack Restaurants. “Beyond the great pizza, we’re passionate about building a company where we value lifting people up as our first goal.”
The 2,711-square foot location will feature MOD’s signature “Wall of Fame,” an assortment of photos from the community and customers, original artwork from local artists and a patio.
Dedicated to giving back, MOD will be donating 100 percent of their sales to the local non-profit, Drumm Farm, on opening day. The organization helps children in foster care, homeless young adults and those aging out of foster care build successful lives by providing programs and services that support forever family environments, emotional and physical well-being, educational opportunities and personal growth.
“We are honored to partner with MOD for the Blue Springs location opening,” said Brad Smith, executive director of Drumm Farm. “The proceeds will truly make a substantial positive impact on the lifelong success of children and young adults in need of a family and stable environment.”
MOD is known for providing job opportunities to former incarcerated individuals throughout their locations as a way of giving a “second chance” to those ready to integrate back into society.
