Every pizza lover’s dream day is back as California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) celebrates the 2nd National Pizza Day today, August 15.
And with a 10th branch recently opened at the ground floor of Eastwood Mall, Eastwood Cyberpark in Libis, Quezon City, Filipinos will get to enjoy more free pizza slices in varied locations in the metro.
For the National Pizza Day celebration, CPK is giving away free pizza from a selection of five new flavours--Untraditional Cheese Pizza, Garlic Chicken Pizza, Hawaiian Pizza, Wild Mushroom and Caprese Pizza--for every order of a regular or thin crust pizza.
Untraditional Cheese Pizza is made from Mozzarella, fresh Mozzarella and tomato sauce. Garlic Chicken Pizza is topped with roasted garlic, grilled chicken, sweet caramelized onions, fresh Mozzarella, Parmesan cheese, slivered scallions and crushed black pepper. The Hawaiian Pizza deviates from the traditional style served in other pizza hubs as it’s topped with Canadian bacon and slivered scallions alongside the classic Mozzarella, tomato sauce and pineapple ingredients. Wild Mushroom Pizza has Shiitake, Abalone and white mushrooms alongside garlic olive oil, slivered scallions and Mozzarella, Romano and Parmesan cheese. Last on the menu of free pizza choices is Caprese, a pizza topped with Basil Cashew Pesto, cherry tomatoes, fresh Mozzarella and topped with fresh basil leaves and Grana Padano Parmesan.
Aside from the free pizza, diners can also enjoy refillable Coca-Cola for only P50. All five pizza selections will be served exclusively on National Pizza Day and will not be on CPK’s regular menu.
“These are five new pizzas that clearly showcase what CPK has become known for: California creativity and innovation with every meal. People come to us for a memorable dining experience of unique pizzas, salads, pastas, soups and sandwiches, appetizers and desserts, and an impressive wine and beverage list. We beef up our menu with tasty innovative dishes that make our guests keep coming back to taste their old favourites and experience new dishes,” said Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurants Inc. (GRCI), CPK’s local partner.
CPK Philippines is the first franchise to operate outside the United States. As a testament to its popularity in the country, the restaurant has been expanding its presence and regularly updating its menu. The Eastwood Mall restaurant is CPK’s second location in Quezon City, after opening in Trinoma Mall a few years back. Last year, CPK also opened in Harbor Point Mall in Subic, its first branch outside Metro Manila.
“As foodies, Filipinos have grown mature. We have been exposed to global flavours and are willing to try new dishes that CPK brings to the table. This inspires us to create something extraordinary out of simple ingredients, adding to it the same familiar California twist. It is no wonder that people look up to us now as the pizza authority,” he added.
CPK has promised more offerings on its 16th year in the Philippines, including the rollout of a new menu and the opening of another location by the next quarter.
“Filipinos have always been pizza lovers. And yes, the numbers are growing! We have seen this as more families and groups dine with us. There is also the clamour to expand in other key cities and be present in almost every gathering,” Rodriguez said.
The National Pizza Day free pizza promo is valid for dine-in and take-out in all CPK branches nationwide only on August 15, 2013.
Celebrate the National Pizza Day at CPK in the following locations: Alabang Town Center, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, TriNoma, Greenhills Promenade, Power Plant Mall, Greenbelt 5, Lucky Chinatown Mall, Subic Harbor Point Mall, W Global Center Bonifacio Global City and Eastwood Mall.
