CHARLOTTE, NC (JULY 19, 2017) – MOD Pizza, the Seattle-based company that launched the rapidly growing fast casual pizza segment, is now open in Matthews, North Carolina. In a partnership with SD Holdings, the new location is open at 10420 East Independence Road, in the Matthews Festival shopping center. The store features an outdoor patio, a huge 800 degree oven and MOD’s signature locally inspired interior. This is the sixth of multiple MOD stores that SD Holdings plans to open in North Carolina.
“We could not be more excited to bring this excellent concept to the city of Matthews!” said Yaron Goldman, CEO of SD Holdings. “We are confident that our customers are going to love the product and the atmosphere this restaurant has to offer. This is our second MOD we have opened in the Charlotte market and we look forward to the continued growth of this great city.”
Added Scott Svenson, co-founder and CEO of MOD, “Our motivation to bring MOD to new communities is driven by our desire to make a positive impact in the communities we serve. Yaron and his team share our commitment to building a company focused around people, and we’re excited to share both our unique pizza experience and our people-first culture with the Matthews community.”
MOD’s individual artisan-style pizzas are made on demand, using fresh-pressed dough and signature sauces. Customers can create their own pizzas and salads, using any combination of over 30 featured toppings, or they can choose from a menu of MOD classics. The price always remains the same – $7.87 for a MOD-size salad or pizza – regardless of the number of toppings. Pizzas are hand-cooked in an 800 degree oven in just minutes and salads are individually hand-tossed for each customer. MOD also serves local craft beers, wine, handspun milkshakes, and house-made lemonades and iced teas.
