SCOTT & ALLY SVENSON | CO-FOUNDERS

After founding and selling two successful businesses in the U.K. – Seattle Coffee Company and Carluccio’s Ltd. – Scott and Ally returned to their hometown of Seattle to raise their family. With four growing boys, they soon discovered a need for family-friendly dining options that were fast, healthy and affordable. They wondered, was there a way to innovate this restaurant segment? Soon their entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and they began exploring ideas that combined their love of business, people and purpose. The goal? Create a people-first culture where everyone could thrive. The result was MOD Pizza. The first MOD opened in 2008 in downtown Seattle, and the “pizza with a purpose” brand grew from there. Today, Scott serves as MOD’s CEO and Ally as MOD’s VP of Brand.
