It's Customer's Choice at Mod Pizza Michigan Opening

What would you pay for pizza if the pizzeria owners told you to pay whatever you want? 

According to The Oakland Press, the operators of a new Rochester Hills, Michigan-based Mod Pizza invited attendees at their pizzeria's grand opening Nov. 14 to support The Rochester Community Schools Foundation with their purchases at any price they saw fit. "People can get whatever they want and pay whatever they want,” said James Hannan, vice president of operations for TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants, which franchised the location. Hoping to "spread the modness," Hannan says all proceeds will support the nonprofit education foundation that was established in 1995 to advance learning by connecting donors, organizations and businesses to philanthropic opportunities. Since its creation, the foundation has raised more than $10 million for Rochester Hills schools. The new store in Rochester Hills is TEAM Schostak's third in the area an No. 84 in the Seattle-based Mod Pizza chain that specializes in personalized pizzas made fast.
