Seattle-based MOD Pizza will open a new store in the Sammamish Highlands Shopping Center in mid September.
According to a store spokeswoman, the 2,200-square-foot business will be located close to NE 8th Street and will have an outdoor patio.
The current grand opening date is set for Sept. 12.
MOD specializes individual artisan-style pizzas that are prepared and cooked in 800-degree display ovens within 2-3 minutes. All pizzas cost $6.88 regardless of toppings.
MOD also offers a selection of salads along with draft beer, wine, pizza knots, milkshakes and old fashioned Ding Dongs.
There are currently six MOD locations, including downtown Seattle, the University District, the Seattle Center, Capitol Hill, Lynnwood and Bellevue.
"We have spent the past few years fine tuning our brand and connecting with our customers in order to understand the potential of the MOD brand," said Scott Svenson, who founded MOD Pizza with his wife Ally.
Along with the Sammamish location, the company will also open a store this September in Redmond's Bella Bottega Shopping Center.Contact Issaquah Reporter Assistant editor Kevin Endejan at firstname.lastname@example.org or 425-391-0363, ext. 5054.
