Slice of speculation: Biz Buzz has it on good authority that fast-casual eatery Mod Pizza plans a Texas City restaurant in Palmer Plaza, 3400 block of Palmer Highway. The pizzeria will rise in a small, newly built retail center on the site occupied by Gus’ Restaurant, which is moving across the street. More on that shortly.
Houston-based Edifis Group is rumored to have plans to soon demolish the Gus’ Restaurant building, 3402 Palmer Highway, and replace it with a 4,300-square-foot strip center that would include Mod Pizza, a restaurant chain founded in Seattle, Washington, in 2008. Mod Pizza has more than 400 restaurants in the United States and United Kingdom.
