Bellevue’s Mod Pizza wins Neighbor Award

The Washington Hospitality Association recently recognized Mod Pizza as the Washington state winner of the Restaurant Neighbor Award.

The National Restaurant Association’s award recognizes outstanding community service among restaurants. Recipients of the state-level award are selected by the Washington Hospitality Association and nominated for the national-level award.

“These restaurants are making improvement of our community a priority,” said Anthony Anton, president and CEO of the Washington Hospitality Association. “We are honored to have them as part of hospitality. They are strong examples for all of us to follow.”

MOD Pizza is headquartered in Bellevue. Each store gives 100 percent of its first-day sales to a local nonprofit, selected by employees at that location. At the Overlake location’s grand opening in July, the MOD Squad donated $3,512 to Jubilee Reach to help with the Highland STEAM program. The Redmond Ridge location donated $5,324 to the Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center to provide equine-assisted therapy to disabled children and adults.
