Pizza Chains That Are Completely Taking Over America

  • Published on Jul 20, 2019
  • If you consider yourself a pizza loyalist, then you may want to check out some of these chains to see what all the fuss is about. Take a look to see if your favorite made the list -and if they didn't give one of these a try. These are the pizza chains that are taking over America.
    Mod Pizza was founded in Seattle in 2008 by a married couple. Fast forward a decade, and according to Nation's Restaurant News, Mod Pizza has become the fastest-growing restaurant chain in America for the second year in a row. And they show no signs of slowing down: according to a Mod press release, the chain aims to hit 1,000 locations within the next five years.
    Mod Pizza prides itself on selling the superfast pizza experience without sacrificing quality. You can get artisan style individual sized pizzas with over 30 types of unlimited toppings all for the same price. They even launched their own app with a rewards program to keep up with the mobile demand, which has doubled. Not only is Mod Pizza taking over the pizza chain business, but they are doing it with style.
    Superstar NBA living legend LeBron James isn't just one of the best basketball players of all time, he's also one of the most famous athletes in the world.
    Well, in 2017, James made headlines thanks to his lucrative investment in Blaze Pizzas. And he's not alone. Started by Elise and Rick Wetzel of Wetzel's Pretzels in 2012, the company reached $279 million in sales in 2018, up a whopping 50 percent from the previous year.
    How have they succeeded? Blaze Pizza offers customers a fast-casual approach that they believe will beat out fast food chains. Elise told Business Insider,
    "There are too many fast food restaurants. People are not going to be satisfied with that. They want convenience, health, and taste."
    Rick added that the secret of their success is simple:
    "Blaze Pizza is much better than competitors. What we do is what people want."
    And if you don't believe him, just take it from LeBron James!

    "A pizza", which sounds like "ah-BEETS" to you, is NOT a made up word! You obviously know nothing about Italians, Italian immigrants or their language and dialects. You've spent much time and effort to get your info about which chains are growing fastest, but you didn't bother to put any effort into learning about the word. As an Italian-American, I'm insulted that you've published something so untrue as fact. You wouldn't have done that if this was a Hispanic product and a Spanish word for fear of offending a group of people...which I wouldn't blame them. You probably know nothing about your own heritage.

    Complete garbage. Born and raised in NY I can tell you with absolute certainty that once you leave the Tri-State area there is no pizza. With the exception of Frank Pepes, which I donโ€™t really consider a chain, I wouldnโ€™t walk into those other places. You want real pizza come to NY and go to Patsyโ€™s or Johnโ€™s or Arturoโ€™s or Joeโ€™s or even the local place on the corner. Also, when did Califlower be considered pizza or Philly cheesesteak pizza? Horrible and sorry Chicago your deep dish is good but itโ€™s not pizza.

    Blaze, MOD, etc. are excellent competition for fast food joints like McDonalds, Burger King, Arbys, etc. If I want a quality crafted, authentic pizza, I will visit a family operated local restaurant. Itโ€™s about more than speed of service.

    At least when it was a one-shop operation in New Haven, Frank Pepe's pizza was absolutely phenomenal. I don't know if it can sustain that as a chain, but I hope so.

    The only pizza chain on this list that I have tried is Mod Pizza. All the others are not in my city.
    To me, Mod Pizza tastes just like one of the CHEAP Tombstone frozen pizzas you get at the grocery store. Nuff Said!

    If all the prices are as high as blaze, then the price of pizza is out of my reach. I make my own pizza at home using fresh ingredients. Eating out is so overrated, and is for those out there working for a living so they can afford to eat out at their lunch break from work
