From a legendary pizza to a global brand – We opened our first restaurant In Beverly Hills in 1985. Former federal prosecutors Rick Rosenfield and Larry Flax combined their passion for food with fresh high-quality ingredients to produce innovative, hearth-baked pizzas such as The Original BBQ Chicken, Thai Chicken, and Jamaican Jerk Chicken, cooked in an open kitchen. The restaurant gave California a location 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.
Quickly right after the first location opened, we expanded from California to a lot more than 250 locations in than 30 states and 11 countries. However it doesn’t stop there; you’ll also find us bringing smiles for the pizza aisle inside your grocer’s freezer, taking the edge off travel fatigue in leading airports worldwide, 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 of the acquisition, the company’s common stock has stopped being publicly traded.
