MOD Pizza names Jennifer Anderson CMO


MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings LLC, the fast-casual pizza concept, has named Jennifer Anderson as chief marketing officer, the company said Tuesday.

The Bellevue, Wash.-based MOD Pizza said Anderson previously served as CMO at Raising Cane’s Chicken Fingers. The marketing post had been held previously by Mark Shambura, who was named CMO at Papa Johns International Inc. in 2023.

A MOD Pizza spokesperson said Anderson will oversee all aspects of marketing, including advertising, digital, consumer insights and engagement, local store marketing, and menu development.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jenn to our leadership team,” said Beth Scott, MOD CEO, in a statement. “Her extensive marketing experience coupled with her culinary achievements make her perfectly suited for this important role as we work to continue evolving the MOD Pizza brand.”

Before her eight years at Raising Cane’s, Anderson spent more than a decade at Orlando, Fla.-based Darden Restaurants Inc., parent to Olive Garden and other casual-dining brands, in various marketing and culinary roles.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Beth and the team to help guide a brand I’ve long enjoyed and admired to the next phase of its journey,” Anderson said.

MOD Pizza, founded in 2008, has more than 500 restaurants in 29 states and Canada.
