To celebrate, MOD will be offering a free artisan-style pizza to the first 52 guests that attend. After that, 100 percent of all pizza sales on opening day will be donated to Camp Boggy Creek, a Serious Fun Camp, which offers children with serious illnesses & their families a free, safe and medically-sound camp environment.


“MOD has established itself as a leader in the fast-casual pizza category while offering consumers an authentic, affordable and fast dining experience. We are excited to expand our brand further across the state with our first Orlando location,” said Jarett Levan, President of BBX Capital.

“In addition to our delicious pizza and salads, MOD is a purpose-led brand committed to making a positive impact on the lives of our employees, customers and communities. This is done by offering well-paying jobs, career development opportunities, and partnering with local non-profits that support the community. We call it ‘Spreading MODness’ and are excited to bring it to Orlando.”

MOD will be hiring approximately 30 energetic and passionate individuals for the Vineland Pointe location.

MOD’s individual, artisan-style pizzas are made on demand, using fresh-pressed dough and signature sauces. Customers create their own pizzas and salads, using any combination of over 30 featured toppings, or they can choose from a menu of MOD classics.


The price always remains the same regardless of the number of toppings. Pizzas are hand-cooked in just minutes and salads are individually hand-tossed for each customer. The menu is rounded out with handspun milkshakes, house-made lemonades and iced teas, and local craft beers and wine.
