Seattle, WA (RestaurantNews.com) MOD Pizza, known for its superfast pizza and salads, as well as making a positive impact, announced the results of its annual Spreading MODness Week: $241,649 donated to over 165 charities supporting at-risk youth and families. MOD donated $1.00 from every pizza sold from November 22-27, 2016 at each of its 179 locations across the U.S. and U.K.
Spreading MODness began in 2013 as a way to celebrate the Company’s birthday which happens to fall during the Thanksgiving week. Now in its fourth year, Spreading MODness Week has generated over half of a million dollars to help those most vulnerable in communities MOD serves.
“We are so proud of our MOD Squad who rallied together to choose and support a meaningful charity for each of their stores, celebrating our theme ‘Gratitude with Attitude’,” said Ally Svenson, co-founder of MOD. “At MOD, we’re committed to proving that a business can do well, while also doing good. Through our simple product of pizza, we are able to make a positive impact in communities across the U.S. Spreading MODness is ‘the ripple effect of simply doing the right thing’ and we love that our MOD Squads show that kindness to our customers on a daily basis.”
