MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC is looking at expanding its purpose-led fast casual brand into Canada. The brand has signed a development agreement for Canada with V.I. Pizza Inc.

Under this agreement, V.I. Pizza will bring five MOD locations to the island over the next several years.

Scott Svenson, Co-Founder and CEO, MOD, said, “We are confident that MOD will translate well in the Canadian marketplace, and that the V.I. Pizza team will be great partners as we further expand our footprint. With Vancouver Island’s close proximity to our home base of Seattle, this feels like the perfect first step into Canada.”

“For us, the most important factor in selecting our franchisees is finding those who not only share our business values, but are committed to cultivating the MOD culture in their stores. The V.I. Pizza team is aligned with our belief that taking care of people, and using the platform of MOD to make a positive impact, leads to a successful business. As we continue to grow MOD’s footprint, we hope to identify additional like-minded partners who are interested in helping us expand across Canada,” Scott further stated.

Presently, MOD Pizza has more than 455 locations system-wide, with an additional over 20 stores slated to launch by the end of 2019.

Jim Hayden, COO of V.I. Pizza Inc, added, “We’re absolutely thrilled to introduce MOD Pizza to Canada, and to share its compelling combination of superior food quality, value, speed and most importantly, its platform for doing good. MOD embodies everything we believe a brand should stand for – a people-first culture, a community-driven approach, and a best-in-class business model. We can’t wait to debut the first store in our home market of Vancouver Island.”
