Kentlands: MOD Pizza Reopens; Construction Begins at Brio’s Chicken

MOD Pizza has reopened its Kentlands location after a temporary closure that lasted a little longer than anticipated. The fast-casual pizza restaurant with over 500 locations nationwide, reopened at 145 Commerce Square Place in Gaithersburg earlier this week according to an employee we spoke with earlier today. The acronym “MOD” in the company’s name stands for “Made on Demand” and the company has three locations in Montgomery County– Downtown Silver Spring, Kentlands, and Montrose Crossing in Rockville. MOD Pizza offers individual, customizable pizzas made with organic dough using King Arthur Flour. Customers specify which ingredients they want included on their order, and watch the preparation process, though the restaurant also offers recommended combinations. Pizzas are then cooked in three minutes using stone ovens at 800 °F.

Back in October of 2020 we let you know that Brio’s Chicken would be coming to the Kentlands neighborhood. Over two year later, it looks like construction has started on the interior. The Peruvian chicken restaurant will be occupying one of the newly constructed storefronts found in the paseo in the Kentlands. It will be located right behind Vine Alley (the old Wine Harvest location) and next to the future location of Neal’s Bagels. Brio’s Chicken had a location in Aspen Hill in the Aspen Manor shopping center, where Outback is located, but that location is under new ownership and is now known as Gio’s Chicken. No projected opening date yet, but it’s now looking like Spring 2023 is a possibility.
