At MOD Pizza, customers may choose their own artisan-style pizzas, which are made on demand, and salads.

SEATTLE — MOD Super Fast Pizza Holdings, L.L.C., which has more than 300 locations in the United States and the United Kingdom, plans more growth in 2018 after raising $33 million of additional equity and closing on a $40 million credit facility, the Seattle-based fast-casual chain said Jan. 9.

Scott and Ally Svenson founded MOD Pizza in 2008. Customers may choose their own artisan-style pizzas, which are made on demand, and salads. The chain opened 110 stores system-wide in 2017.

The latest equity funding brings the company’s total equity capital raised to more than $185 million. Existing investors, including PWP Growth Equity and Fidelity Management & Research Co., led the $33 million equity investment. The $40 million credit facility was arranged by Keybanc Capital Markets, Inc. and SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, Inc. as joint lead arrangers and book runners, and joined by Raymond James.
