First, the ribboncutting … then, the pizza-making!

As first reported here last week and previewed this morning in our daily highlights list, it’s Opening Day for MOD Pizza at The Whittaker (4755 Fauntleroy Way SW; WSB sponsor). The Seattle-born chain offers you the opportunity to pick your toppings, and charges you the same, however many or few you choose. It also is donating opening-day pizza proceeds to FareStart, a job-training program that MOD says has a 90 percent hire rate within 90 days of graduation. Below are Megan Hampson and Molly Hancock from FareStart, with West Seattle Chamber of Commerce board chair Pete Spalding:

MOD West Seattle will be open 10:30 am-11 pm Fridays and Saturdays, 10:30 am-10 pm Sundays-Thursdays. And they chose an apropos date to open – it’s National Pizza Day.

    I can’t make it in today, but I’m really impressed that they donating today’s proceeds to FareStar. It is a great organization. I will definitely try them just because of this donation!

    Big MOD fan, happy to have them in the neighborhood. It’s too bad they had to do the opening on a Friday instead of over a weekend… Would have loved to attend, but some of us have to work!

    it was packed at dinnertime but they were handling it well. people were moving through the order line quickly and those who had done internet orders were coming in, grabbing their pizzas and walking out with relative ease.

    nice job and great decision to donate today’s proceeds to farestart. if people didn’t know about that gem of an organization, maybe now they will!

    How do you get into their parking lot?

      The garage entrance is off the driveway between the two Whittaker buildings.

    Go Mod!  Thanks so much as a long time Mod fan and Farestart supporter. You both have this amazing shared commitment to turning lives around in the community you serve.  A wonderful partnership!!  I also wish I could have attended. 

Sorry, comment time is over.
