To us, pizza is more than just food. It’s our platform to make a positive social impact in the lives of our people and the communities we serve. MOD exists to contribute to a world that works for and includes everyone. We face challenges today that don’t have simple solutions, but at the heart of MOD are two beliefs. The first is that everyone deserves an equal opportunity to pursue their hopes and dreams. Unfortunately, the playing field for many is far from level. The second belief is that businesses can and should play a role in addressing societal challenges. At MOD, that means doing our part to create a more accepting and equitable world by building a successful business that puts people first.
To really understand MOD, it’s important to know this is not a pizza place — we’re a people place. Putting people first starts with our hiring practices. From the beginning, we recognized there are people in communities who are often overlooked and face real barriers to employment. By providing opportunities to people formerly incarcerated, individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD), Opportunity Youth (those between the ages of 16 and 24 who are not in school and not employed), and those who have struggled with homelessness or are recovering from addiction, MOD strives every day to foster a sense of opportunity and belonging. Together, we’re building strong and passionate MOD Squad communities in every restaurant across the country.
