Mission: MOD celebrates self-expression, genuine hearts, and individual spirits who are committed to enjoying life’s journey and creating not just a cool place to eat, but an inspired place to work.
Who we are
MOD is the original superfast pizza experience – a pioneering fast-casual concept that puts you in the driver’s seat. Artisan-style pizzas and salads are individually sized, made on demand, and ready in just minutes. Choose from over 30 toppings – the price stays the same no matter what you pick. At its heart, however, MOD is a platform for doing good. The idea? If we take care of our employees, they’ll take care of you, and our business will take care of itself. We call it Spreading MODness, and after opening stores across the U.S. and U.K., we think it’s working.
How we started
MOD was founded in 2008 by husband and wife, Scott and Ally Svenson, in their hometown of Seattle. Inspired by their own search for quick, affordable, wholesome restaurant options for their growing family, they started to wonder if there were a better way of doing pizza – and business. The last thing the world needed was another pizza place, but maybe this one could be different. What if everyone could get exactly what they wanted, made fresh on demand, for as little as possible? And what if employees were paid as much as possible and given real opportunities for growth, even second chances? It all started sounding pretty great, and soon Scott and Ally were opening the first MOD Pizza in downtown Seattle.
Our people-first mission
Spreading MODness means a lot of things, but mostly it means treating our employees (aka the MOD Squad) right. By putting people first, we strive to be a force for positive change in their lives and the communities they serve. From above-industry pay and benefits to hiring people with special needs – including people in need of a second chance – our ethos is deeply rooted in acceptance, opportunity and development. The result? An amazing spirit of individuality, teamwork and service has emerged. It’s our culture of doing good – and it’s catching on.
Food to feel good about
Food authenticity is a huge deal with us – where it comes from, how it’s prepared – and of course, how it tastes. From hand-pressing our dough daily, to roasting our own vegetables, to banning the bad stuff – we’ve made it a priority to keep our food true. We’re also mindful of animal ethics, environmental impact, and working with food partners that share our commitment to quality. If we wouldn’t serve it to our kids, we won’t serve it to you. It’s that simple.
MOD Pizza is looking for great people to grow with us. Our company culture celebrates self-expression, genuine hearts and individual spirits who are committed to enjoying life’s journey. We’re looking for smart, savvy leaders who aren’t afraid to have a little fun and let their personalities shine.
We also believe in fresh starts. We could judge you on where you’ve been, but we’d rather get excited about where you’re going and all your awesome potential. MOD’s always looking for people who want to work in a fun, fast-paced environment. We celebrate the diversity of our employees, choosing to focus on character and drive rather than putting an emphasis on prior food service experience. Personality? Passion? Pride in what you do? We need to meet you.
I worked at MOD Pizza part-time
Very young and energetic environment, great coworkers with unique and vibrant personalities, never bored
Not much room for growth in terms of salary, management changes frequently
I applied online. I interviewed at MOD Pizza (Redlands, CA).
Applied online and got a call a week and a half later to come in the next day for an interview before opening time. Got there 5 mins early and we started the interview right away. Was asked if I had a job before and i said no but i said i had some volunteer work then i was asked what times I'm able to worked and then hired right on the spot. The whole thing took 5 mins.
