“After 36+ years of serving innovative, California inspired cuisine, we are proud to have built an incredibly loyal and supportive CPK guest community, so we wanted to do something to show our appreciation as we kick off the new year,” said Ashley Ceraolo, SVP of Marketing at California Pizza Kitchen. “This program is an exciting way to give back to each CPK guest and truly say ‘Thank You’, whether it’s a percentage off their next meal, a memorable vacation, or a cash prize. The best part is every card is a winner!”


To redeem their prize, guests must bring back their unopened “Thank You” envelope to any full-service CPK location between January 16 and April 23 and have a CPK restaurant manager open it.
