MOD Pizza Seeks Nominations for Incredible Kid Contest

Posted on March 20th, 2019 by TEAM Schostak in Community, News

In honor of Incredible Kid Day on March 21, TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR) and its 13 franchised MOD Pizza restaurants are celebrating by giving a free pizza party from each of its locations to 13 local students’ classrooms.

A day dedicated to recognizing the incredible efforts and characteristics of children around the world, TSFR’s MOD Pizza restaurants are seeking parents, guardians, teachers or friends to nominate local students who have gone above and beyond to create a ripple effect for good in the communities MOD Pizza serves. The winning students, to be selected by the employees of each of TSFR’s 13 MOD Pizza locations, will receive a free pizza party for his/her entire classroom. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade who attend a school located in Livonia, Northville, Rochester Hills, Woodhaven, Brighton, Canton, Chesterfield, Troy, Kalamazoo, Southgate and Shelby Township are eligible to be entered to win the pizza giveaway.

Those interested in nominating a student simply need to fill out the form, complete with the nominator’s name, the student’s name and age, the nominee’s school, contact information, and 1500 characters or less explaining why the student should be selected as a MOD Pizza Incredible Kid. Each student in the winning classrooms will also receive a coupon for a free MOD-sized pizza. Nominations will be accepted now through Friday, April 12, 2019. Nominators can access the form and complete list of Terms and Conditions below. The grand prize pizza party winners will be selected and notified by Tuesday, April 16, 2019.

While we are committed to creating a ripple effect of good in the communities we serve, we are also committed to recognizing those that help to make a positive impact in the communities we serve—and our Incredible Kid contest does just that. Every year, we receive more and more inspiring nominations and positive responses to this contest, making the process of choosing winners harder, but solidifying that our ripple effect is working. We look forward to celebrating the incredible kids in our communities once again this year.

MOD Pizza offers individual artisan-style pizzas made on demand, using fresh-pressed dough and signature sauces. Customers can create their own pizzas and salads, using any combination of over 30 featured toppings, all for one incredible price. Customers can also choose from a menu of MOD classics. Pizzas are cooked in just minutes and salads are hand-tossed for each customer. The menu is rounded out with a MOD Pizza signature “No Name Cake”, handspun milkshakes, house-made lemonades and iced teas, and local craft beer and wine.

In late 2014, TSFR announced its plans to launch 25 MOD Pizza franchised locations in Michigan over the next five years. Since then, TSFR has opened its first 13 MOD Pizza locations Livonia, Northville, Rochester Hills, Woodhaven, Brighton, Canton and Chesterfield, Troy, Southgate, Kalamazoo and three in Shelby Township.
