A Seattle-based pizza chain that has become the rage of the Millennial Generation is embarking on a plan to build new locations across the country.
Made on Demand Pizza, more popularly known as MOD Pizza, has received more than $185 million in equity capital, boasting of just over 300 stores last year at this time.
The chain, which features individual, artisan-style pizza built by customers, has now just opened its 400th store.
That store, in Kalispell, Montana, comes on the heels of new stores opened in recent months in Denver, Milwaukee, Tampa, and Gainesville, Florida, among other locations.
Launched in 2008, MOD Pizza currently has locations in more than 20 states, including Arizona, Colorado, and Texas.
Those locations generally measure around 2,600 square feet, often with additional patio space.
The company particularly focuses on areas with dense populations, often in college towns, and parts of cities that have a vibrant daytime working population.
Because of its rapid growth, MOD Pizza last year was selected for the Breakout Retailers Award by Chain Store Age magazine.
