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!

    Which of these pizza chains has you the most excited?

      None. But considering Im 67 and live in S.jersey and a mom and pop pizza joint on about every corner. Sad thing is most are getting like the chains, no real mozzerla ie baged cheese, sauce from a can and hormel peperoni. tho most still make there own dough. Growing up we had very few pizza joints and it was a real treat to get a pie and everything was made from scratch, sauce cheese dough peperoni sausage fresh vegatables.

    It's hard to find authentic food anymore because the corporate machine has become the ruler of the land. It's authentic for awhile but eventually the machine drives these places into ditching their core values because they're lead to believe that they must please EVERYBODY... even though it's a common fact that you can't. But eventually they die trying.

    It's like this... to many chains, to much competition. You can only do so much before originality becomes repetative and just plain ridiculous. Between vegans, meat eaters, people with weird ass food allergies and a complete lack of patiance in the general public most of these places are setting themselves up for failure. It's not just supply and demand, it's supply, demand and lie to me about my food and make me believe it until your dreams are crushed.

    "ah-beets" is not a new word at all...please do your research before you spout off in a video. Traditionally in Connecticut pizza is spelled Apizza at traditional Italian restaurants and with a thick Italian accent it comes across as "ahbeets"

  • Gamer 2: Gamer No More

    Having eaten at Pizzeria Locale - they're nothing to write home about. Imo, the best Colorado-based chain is Beau Jo's. We've got a lot of great food in this state, but our biggest chains do nothing for our reputation. Snarf's vs. Quiznos, for example.

    Everyone else copied Malnati's.
    It's not an upside down pizza.

    None of the other frank pepe’s Locations are even close to being as good as the original. They’re not bad, In fact they are still almost definently the best pizza in that town, but they don’t compare to the original location.

    Ok I watched for a few minutes. It’s all so offensive to real pizza from NY/NJ where I grew up, that I cannot watch anymore. These places are the “Subway” of the pizza world. 🤮

  • Joe Dazey

    MOD pizza is decent, Blaze is okay, I prefer a place called Fired Pie that is doing the build your own pizza concept. I haven't tried the other places that have this concept. Pepe's, imo, is only good at the original New Haven location. Not sure about the pizza quiche. You won't find Pizza in Italy that at all resembles "Marco's Pizza," YUCK! Pizza studio is a FAIL, conveyor belt "ovens" are just OVER SIZED toaster ovens. You can pay someone minimum wage to plop dough gizmos, however, they do not bake the pizza properly, if much at all. Pizza half unbaked is not my idea of a good pizza!Jet's from Detroit, while ugh, a half step better than pizza studio.

    Greek style is the way to go. Cape Cod pizza is all that is left

  • dofphoto
    dofphoto 25 days ago

    Good pizza starts with the dough and sauce, sourcing ingrediants is not the same as cooking, not a single one of these places has anything to say about that, except the Chcago joint. "Artisan pizza" is not a pizza, its an unfolded hotpocket on some crappy beatnik dough that cooks quick so you can get delivery in 15 minutes.. what a sham.

    For most people who have no idea what vegan cheese is like. Basically plastic cheese as well as vegan meat. If these are going to cook this same crap with the real pizza, than i want no part in there restaurant

  • Randy Crane

    Just like a Subway, some good some bad but not places you want to go back to. I go to a local pizza place called Pantera's in O'fallon Missouri. Get the hunk and you will tell everyone about it. They are family run and not expanding but best pizza in town. Owner is there a lot or his right hand man. Place to take the family. That's where I'm going.

    Pizza rev = mod pizza = pieology = pizza studio. Same product being rebottled in different packages; in time they will go the way of the standard junk food chain.

    • Joe Dazey
      Joe Dazey 24 days ago +1

      Although I do agree with you for the most part, they're still better than any pizza that's plopped on to an over sized toaster oven (conveyor belt)!

    Of all the quickie pizza joints I'v been to...Mod, Pizza Studio, Blaze, and Pieology, my favorite is Pizza Studio, it tastes like an actual pizza parlor pizza. The one place I'd never go back to is Mod. It is absolutely not a pizza. It's a large water cracker with flavorless ketchup for sauce.
