FOLLOWUP: One week until MOD Pizza opens in West Seattle

Three weeks ago, we reported that the new MOD Pizza in The Whittaker (4755 Fauntleroy Way SW; WSB sponsor) planned to open in “early February.” The official grand opening is now set for one week from today – noon on Friday, February 9th. The Seattle-based chain also has picked the nonprofit to which it’ll donate opening day’s pizza proceeds: FareStart. If you haven’t been to MOD, its angle on pizza is that you get to choose your toppings, none or one or many, same price.

      In the huge garage, downstairs.

        I’m assuming this is a pay-for-parking garage, which only adds to the cost of your meal, and parking is not cheap. With all the pizza choices, many customers will likely opt for establishments with free parking nearby.  This area in general may be problematic for these type of retail businesses because  there is so little parking available.  If I have to walk three, four, or more blocks to get to get from my car to the business, it’s just not worth it, and at night, it’s less safe. As it is, I spend less time in the W.S. Junction just because parking is such a hassle.

    The last time we were there, the only way to access businesses was to walk up the ramp from the garage.   Wonder if elevators, or whatever has opened yet.

      Yes, there is a set of elevators open.

    What a great way to demonstrate social impact values. I will absolutely support MOD pizza for this and so many of their corporate values.

    That is the kind of business that fits with the values I believe West Seattle espouses.

    This is great news! I hadn’t gotten around to going to one of the Seattle-area locations, but I had MOD pizza twice while visiting family near St. Louis during the holidays. I didn’t realize MOD was based in Seattle. Really pleased with the quality, especially for the price! Looking forward to stopping by for lunch. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
