Seattle, WA (RestaurantNews.com) MOD Pizza, known for its individual, artisan-style pizza and people-first culture, will expand its Texas footprint with the opening of its first two Dallas/Fort Worth locations this summer. MOD is slated to open a total of four Dallas/Fort Worth area stores by the end of 2018: Prosper and McKinney in July and August, respectively, and Midlothian and Fort Worth in the fall. MOD currently has more than 40 locations across the state of Texas and this is the company’s first step in their commitment to build a meaningful presence in the greater Metroplex area.
The first MOD DFW locations will be approximately 2,800 square feet and will include outdoor patios:
- MOD Prosper is located in the Windsong Ranch Shopping Center at 4780 West University, Prosper
- MOD McKinney South, located at 3009 South Cluster Road, McKinney
“We’re excited to expand our footprint in Texas, adding to our existing markets of Houston, Austin and San Antonio. Texas is a key market for MOD, and we expect to continue our expansion across the entire state for the foreseeable future,” said Scott Svenson, co-founder and CEO of MOD. “Our motivation to grow MOD has always been driven by our desire to make a positive social impact on as many lives as possible. For us, this means offering job and career growth opportunities to those who face barriers to employment, along with supporting local non-profits that are working to build stronger communities. We believe it is possible to build a strong sustainable business while putting people first, and we’re really excited to bring our unique culture to Dallas.”
MOD will be hiring approximately 30 energetic and passionate individuals for each Dallas location.
“As we come to the Dallas area, we’re looking for great people that thrive in a fun, high energy team environment, are customer focused, and who are interested in growing with us as we continue our rapid expansion,” said Megan Hansen, Senior Vice President of People for MOD.
