Seattle-based chain Mod Pizza continues to ramp up its area expansion with a newly signed lease in Rockville, Maryland.
“We were able to convert what was one restaurant for more than 20 years into a spot for five of the hottest food concepts,” Dan Corwin, director of asset management at Federal Realty, says in a statement.
Mod’s 11-inch pies are cooked in minutes, and salads are tossed to order with over 30 toppings to choose from. Other options include cheesy garlic bread, milkshakes, house-made lemonades and iced teas, and local craft beer and wine.
Mod currently has one area location in Maryland (Silver Spring) and a Northern Virginia stores in Ashburn, Vienna, Fairfax, and Reston. The brand has more than 400 locations across 28 states and the United Kingdom.
The Rockville area’s dining scene has exploded over the past year with the addition of dueling Asian food halls Pike Kitchen and The Spot, as well as the additions of Julii, Jinya, and Nada at the Pike & Rose complex in North Bethesda.
D.C.’s reigning fast-casual pizza chain, &pizza, has six Maryland locations, including one at Pike & Rose.
