MOD Pizza Opens its Doors in Newcastle
Posted on 12/10/2018

The Newcastle MOD Pizza officially opened its doors to the public with an afternoon ribbon cutting on Monday. A line of customers snaked around the building as they awaited the grand opening for the artisan-style pizza chain. 

Jennifer Ulrich, the general manager at the new location, had the honor of cutting the ribbon and thanking the crowd for welcoming MOD to the neighborhood.

“I’m so excited to be a part of this community,” she said, before cutting the ribbon and inviting the customers in to the restaurant.

The proceeds from all pizza sales on Monday, Dec. 10, were donated to Vision House, a local nonprofit that fights to help break the cycle of homelessness for families.

“Spend $20 and you get one individual off the streets and into safe housing. So, eat lots of pizza today,” Vision House Executive Director Melissa Gehrig said. 

The Newcastle MOD Pizza (13156 Newcastle Commons Drive) is the latest new business to open at The Shops at Newcastle Commons. A drive-thru Starbucks opened earlier this year, followed by a BECU. AJI Sushi & Grill and an Overlake Medical Center Clinic are also coming to the shopping center.

About MOD Pizza
MOD Pizza, a pioneer of the fast casual pizza segment, was founded in Seattle in 2008 by entrepreneurs Scott and Ally Svenson. MOD's individual artisan-style pizzas are made on demand, allowing customers to create their own pizzas and salads, using fresh-pressed dough, signature sauces and over 30 toppings, for one price. At the core of MOD is a purpose-led culture that is committed to being a force for good in communities throughout the U.S. and abroad, creating not only a cool place to eat, but an inspired place to work.
