From a legendary pizza to your global brand – We opened our first restaurant In Beverly Hills in 1985. Former federal prosecutors Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax combined their love for food with fresh high-quality ingredients to create innovative, hearth-baked pizzas like the Original BBQ Chicken, Thai Chicken, and Jamaican Jerk Chicken, cooked within an open kitchen. The restaurant gave California a spot in the California Pizza Kitchen Menu alongside Chicago and New York City. Our California twist on global flavors resonated with guests, and almost immediately, CPK became a bustling spot for business and family gatherings.
Very quickly right after the first location opened, we expanded from California to greater than 250 locations in additional than 30 states and 11 countries. Nevertheless it doesn’t stop there; you’ll also find us bringing smiles to the pizza aisle inside your grocer’s freezer, utilizing the edge off travel fatigue in main airports all over the world, feeding eager fans at sports stadiums and students on college campuses.
California Pizza Kitchen completed a preliminary public offering in August 2000 and traded on the NASDAQ National Market underneath the ticker symbol CPKI. On July 7, 2011, Golden Gate Capital completed the acquisition of CPK and as a result from the acquisition, the company’s common stock is no longer publicly traded.
