MOD Pizza, a national pizza chain specializing in made-to-order pies and salads, has opened its newest location in Hampden’s slowly revitalizing, semi-upscale Rotunda shopping center.
The restaurant began serving customers today at noon. In charitable fashion, the business is donating all proceeds from its opening day to Virginia-based child hunger-fighting nonprofit Generosity Feeds. The first 52 customers will also be getting free pizza or salad, and a Facebook event mentions some other giveaways.
The menu on the company’s website lists 10 signature pizza recipes, a few salads and an abundance of toppings that can be piled onto a custom order at no extra cost.
The Baltimore Business Journal first reported MOD Pizza’s arrival in February, alongside a second outpost for The Local Fry and the dessert attraction Cinnaholic, of “Shark Tank” fame. This will be the fourth MOD Pizza location in the area, joining others in Glen Burnie, Severna Park, Sykesville and Columbia, according to a company map.
Neighboring eateries in the Rotunda include Moby Dick’s House of Kabob and Mi and Yu Noodle Bar, as well as MOM’s Organic Market.
Also joining the Rotunda this year is a bar specializing in craft beer, Growler USA. A company spokeswoman told Baltimore Fishbowl last month that the 100-tap chain bar will open sometime in November. It will occupy the space between MOD Pizza and the dine-in CinéBistro theater.
