Mmmm. Pizza. That's what Houstonians have been saying at MOD Pizza, the fast-casual pioneer in individual artisan-style pizzas. With the help of Transwestern, Mod Pizza is continuing its Houston expansion with 11 new stores, bringing it to 15 in the metro.
Transwestern's Grant Walker and Chris Reyes are repping the restaurant locally, helping it most recently open in Riverpark Shopping Center in Sugar Land, the Market at Crenshaw in Pasadena (pictured), Meadows Marketplace in Katy, the Boardwalk at Towne Lake in Cypress and Kroger Conroe Shopping Center in Conroe. It's also inked leases in six locations that haven't opened yet, at Clear Lake Marketplace in Clear Lake, Indian Springs Shopping Center in The Woodlands, Easton Commons in Copperfield, Westlake Marketplace in Summerwood, Parkway Commons in League City and Fairfield Town Center in Cypress. The stores range from 2,400 to 3,200 SF. MOD Pizza has nearly 150 stores already operating in the US and UK. By the end of the year, the chain plans to open 50 more locations.
