MOD Pizza Public Relations Director Charlotte Wayte confirmed the news via email this past week. The restaurant has also started to hire employees, as a large temporary sign attached to the top of the building’s façade indicates.

The MOD brand, which stands for “Made on Demand,” was established in 2008 with a restaurant in downtown Seattle. It has become known for its “original superfast pizza experience,” per its website,

Artisan-style pizzas and salads are “individually sized, made on demand, and ready in just minutes,” the chain adds. MOD offers more than 30 toppings, and the price remains the same no matter which toppings you choose.

New Horizon Therapy on Monday, Aug. 12, will open a second office inside Yavapai Pediatrics, 3001 Main St. Suite 1C, in Prescott Valley, a news release announced in late July.

New Horizon Therapy, based in Tempe, operates a speech-language therapy practice for children. Certified therapists provide evidence-based practices to empower children and their families as they grow, the news release stated.
