MOD Pizza

2035 158th Ct NE, Bellevue, WA 98008

When Scott and Ally Svenson founded MOD Pizza in 2008, they knew the last thing the world needed was another pizza place. In their hometown of Seattle, they imagined a new way for people to enjoy pizza, by bringing speed, individual style and value to one of America’s favorite foods. But the real secret sauce wouldn’t be the product, it would be the people who serve our communities — the MOD Squad. By taking care of employees, they would take care of the customers, and the business would take care of itself. It’s how we’ve built a culture of opportunity, belonging and community for the past 13 years, and it’s catching on wholeheartedly. Mission: To us, pizza is more than just food. It’s our platform to make a positive social impact in the lives of our people and the communities we serve. MOD exists to contribute to a world that works for and includes everyone. We face challenges today that don’t have simple solutions, but at the heart of MOD are two beliefs. The first is that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to pursue their hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, the playing field for many is far from level. The second belief is that businesses can and should play a role in addressing societal challenges. At MOD, that means doing our part to create a more accepting and equitable world by building a successful business that puts people first.

ESG/Ethical Impact

Don’t get us wrong, we make some really amazing food. But pizza alone isn’t what makes MOD special. What truly sets us apart is the MOD Squad — the people who deliver authentic and inspired service to millions every year. At MOD, we believe companies can and should be a force for good in the lives of the people they employ and the communities they serve. So that’s exactly what we’re doing. In every city, in every neighborhood, in every restaurant — our purpose is measured by the positive social impact we can make together. Putting people first starts with our hiring practices. We’re proud to provide jobs to people in our communities who face extraordinary challenges when it comes to finding employment. For example, more than 60% of formerly incarcerated individuals are unemployed one year after being released. And 85% of adults with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD) do not have a paid job in their community. Through the MOD Opportunity Network, we’ve forged relationships with community nonprofit and business partners over the years to lead the way in inclusive hiring.The challenges facing individuals with barriers to employment don’t stop on the date they’re hired. Opportunity is only the beginning, and MOD is committed to providing resources for economic stability and mental health support. By offering stability, we’re opening up doors for individuals to achieve their hopes and dreams. One such initiative is MOD’s Bridge Fund, a longtime grant program where MOD Squad assist each other when experiencing an unexpected crisis. To date, more than $2 million in grants have been provided as a bridge to stability for our Squad during hardships. And for those with criminal records, MOD is partnering with external legal experts to help seal or expunge their records for free at select locations, with plans to expand this program greatly in 2023. You only get to take this journey once — why not make the most of it? When promoting, we look internally to create career pathways for the MOD Squad. While MOD may not be the last stop for many who join us, our commitment to mobility continues beyond our doors. Through the Journey Program, we provide career pathways and advancement to encourage wealth-building. Our partnership with Guild Education offers high school completion programs, college degrees, and multiple certificates in areas including IT, business communication, food and beverage management, and more — all at no cost to MOD Squad members in company-owned stores. We face many complex challenges in society today, and we believe businesses have a role to play in addressing them. Through the power of our voice, we’re speaking up with others to advocate for change. MOD is a proud member of the Workforce & Justice Alliance, a coalition of businesses committed to advancing systemic change in the justice system and removing workforce barriers for individuals with justice involvement. We are using MOD as our platform to help create a world that works for and includes everyone.
