FORT LAUDERDALE, FL—(Marketwired – April 09, 2018) – BBX Capital (“BBX Capital” or “BBX”) announced today that the grand opening of its new South Florida MOD Pizza is planned to take place on Tuesday, April 10th. The new Kendall location, in The Palms at Town & Country at 8525 Mills Drive, Unit 301, is MOD's third in South Florida. Planned hours of operation are from 10:30am to 10:00pm, every day.
In celebration of its grand opening, MOD will give a free artisan–style pizza to the first 52 guests, after which 100 percent of all proceeds from pizza sales on opening day will be donated to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Miami–Dade.
“MOD has established itself as a leader in the fast–casual pizza category by offering customers an authentic, affordable and timely dining experience,” said Jarett Levan, President of BBX Capital. “We are thrilled to introduce the '305' to MOD, and its artisan–style pizzas with 30+ toppings, one price, and the superfast MOD experience.”
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 by choosing from a menu of MOD classics. The price remains the same regardless of the number of toppings. Pizzas are hand–cooked in an 800–degree oven 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.
The 3,400–square foot Kendall location includes an outdoor patio, original artwork and a hand painted mural by Miami based artist Tragek. The store also proudly displays MOD's signature “Wall of Fame,” a photo collage that pays homage to the local community and people from the MOD journey.
BBX Capital is the exclusive franchisee for the MOD Pizza brand for the state of Florida and has signed an agreement to develop up to 60 MOD locations throughout the state over the next six years. BBX currently operates MOD locations in Coral Springs, Parkland and Jacksonville.
