The third DIY pizza concept in the Top 5 currently is the smallest, but quickly is catching up with an explosive growth plan. Founded in 2008 by the owners of Seattle Coffee Company, Mod was the first of the bunch to offer customized pies baked in 800-degree ovens in less than three minutes. Though it only opened its first unit outside of Washington in 2013, it has plans—and $70 million in financing—to open 100 more by the end of the year. The founders count several Starbucks alum among their executive “MOD Squad” and advisory board.
