California Pizza Kitchen

On March 27, 1985, attorneys Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax traded in the courtroom for the dining room. Having always wanted to get into the restaurant business, they pitched their legal pads to serve hearth-baked pizzas. They introduced flavors and tastes from around the world, from Thai to Jamaican Jerk…all on a pizza. All of our innovative pizzas are creatively designed on a delicious crust, and hearth-baked to perfection. Also served are creative salads, made-to-order pastas, soups, sandwiches, appetizers and desserts, including favorites like our Chicken and Shrimp Jambalaya, BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad, Singapore Shrimp Rolls and Key Lime Pie. Now, California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) is a leader in authentic California-style cuisine with a recognized consumer brand and an established, loyal customer base. There are currently more than 180 CPK’s in 27 states and five foreign countries. CPK’s strong brand awareness has been developed primarily through full service restaurants and through the expansion of our high quality fast-casual, CPK/ASAP concept.

During the first quarter of 2023 in collaboration with Litehouse, California Pizza Kitchen launched CPK dressings to grocery store shelves across the country. When CPK opened its doors in 1985, it launched a leap forward in the food space, democratizing upscale pizza as a platform where fresh and creative flavors collide, served in a modern, stylish atmosphere where everyone feels welcome. Today, the idea of moving food and people forward is part of the fabric of who we are as a brand. You see, CPK is committed to evolving in perpetuity – but that’s only possible if we continue to grow our footprint and welcome new talent into our family so we can share our distinctly California way of life with more people every day.
