MOD Pizza, the pioneer of fast-casual pizza, announced it is building on its commitment to high-quality, better-for-you ingredients through a partnership with King Arthur Flour Company, the nation's oldest flour company. MOD Pizza will now use King Arthur Flour in all pizza dough across the country. The flour is 100 percent American grown, non-GMO, and produced using the highest standards in the industry.
"As we got to know King Arthur Flour, we were struck by how much we share in common, including our commitment to putting our people first and our shared passion for producing an inspired product," says Scott Svenson, cofounder and CEO of MOD Pizza. "At MOD, we believe in transparency, and when it comes to our food we are committed to sourcing the very best ingredients while keeping the MOD experience affordable for families. It is important that our guests feel good about what they are eating, and we are always motivated by the fact that our kids eat here, too."
King Arthur Flour begins with the highest grade of wheat, which is selected specifically for its baking properties. Its flours are never bleached and never bromated, and have no unnecessary chemicals such as benzoyl peroxide, chlorine dioxide, or potassium bromate. These strict standards create a consistent baking performance every time, making its flour the perfect choice as the foundation of MOD's pizza dough. Combined with MOD's carefully sourced ingredients—many from smaller and specialized vendors from around the U.S.—MOD is confident in its commitment to provide the very best product at a great price.
"From the moment I learned about MOD Pizza, I knew immediately we would be great partners. Being 100 percent employee-owned, King Arthur Flour starts and ends with people, and together with MOD, we share the commitment to provide products and experiences of unparalleled quality," says Karen Colberg, co-CEO of King Arthur Flour. "We believe in bringing people together and building stronger communities through baking, which is exactly what MOD Pizza offers to every community it enters. We are proud to supply MOD Pizza with the very key ingredient for their dough—the flour—and know it will serve as a great foundation for outstanding pizza."
