MOD Pizza Celebrates Pride Month With Limited-Edition “Pride Cake”
Special Dessert Supports The LGBTQ+ Community
June 07, 2022 // Franchising.com // SEATTLE - MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, LLC (“MOD Pizza”, “MOD” or the “Company”) today released its new, limited-edition Pride Cake, a delicious vanilla cake with a creamy filling, covered in a vanilla frosting and adorned with rainbow sprinkles. MOD’s latest Cake for Good will support two organizations strengthening the LGBTQ+ community: in the US, The Trevor Project, the world’s largest suicide prevention and mental health organization for LGBTQ young people, and in Canada, the Victoria Pride Society.
The Pride Cake ($2.77-$3.02 USD and $4.47 CAN) is available now through July 31, 2022, or while supplies last, at all 500+ MOD Pizza locations system-wide*. For every Pride Cake sold, MOD will donate $0.25.
“As a people-first brand, we have a real commitment to contribute to a world that works for and includes everyone. We want our stores to be a place where everyone feels welcome – safe and inclusive gathering spots where people are treated with respect and dignity,” said Ally Svenson, MOD co-founder and protector of the purpose. “As we celebrate Pride Month, we’re proud to support The Trevor Project and Victoria Pride Society, both making important impacts towards a more welcoming, inclusive and loving world.”
The Trevor Project works to save young LGBTQ lives by providing free and confidential 24/7 phone lifeline, text, and chat services to LGBTQ youth in crisis. The organization also runs TrevorSpace, a safe space social networking site for LGBTQ youth, and operates innovative education, research and advocacy programs. According to The Trevor Project’s 2022 National Survey on LGBTQ Youth Mental Health, 45% of LGBTQ youth seriously considered attempting suicide in the past year, and nearly 1 in 5 transgender and nonbinary youth attempted suicide. Their research also found that 60% of LGBTQ youth who wanted mental health care in the past year were not able to get it.
**The term “system-wide” refers to all company-operated and licensed store locations. The trademarks MOD, MOD Pizza, and the MOD Shield, are owned by MOD Super Fast Pizza, LLC.
