Los Angeles, CA  (  California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority in creative dining with a California vibe, thanks and honors members of the U.S. military past and present with a complimentary meal this Veterans Day. On Wednesday, Nov. 11, CPK invites veterans and active military to enjoy a complimentary entrée from a special Veterans Day Menu at all participating California Pizza Kitchen restaurants nationwide.*

“We are grateful each and every day to the men and women of our military, past and present, for their incredible sacrifice and heroism in serving our country,” said G.J. Hart, CEO of California Pizza Kitchen. “This Veterans Day gives us an opportunity to honor their tremendous commitment to serving others. From all of us at California Pizza Kitchen, our deepest thanks and appreciation to you, and please, be our guest.”

The special Veterans Day menu includes the following entrées:


  • The Original BBQ Chicken: CPK’s legendary BBQ sauce, smoked Gouda, red onions and cilantro baked atop hand-tossed dough transform this original to iconic.
  • Hawaiian: Fresh pineapple, Applewood-smoked ham and silvered scallions.
