We were also the first restaurant to serve American-style dining, where we encouraged people to share each dish,” explained Griffith Go, CFO of GRCI. “Pizza is the heart and soul of CPK and in celebration of our 15th year, we’d like to invite everyone to CPK where they can get a free pizza for every order of pizza, along with bottomless Coca-Cola.”

Diners can also avail of a refillable Coca-Cola pizza for only P50.

New starters on the menu include Fried Mozzarella Sticks, Quesadilla, Spinach with Gorgonzola and the Asian Chicken Wrap. Guests will also find a new CPK thirst quencher, Fruit Sangria made of chardonnay, mango and orange juices.
The new CPK menu items will be exclusively available in the Philippines and are available at restaurants in Glorietta 3, Alabang Town Center, Shangri-La Plaza Mall, Greenhills Promenade, Trinoma, Power Plant Mall and Greenbelt 5.
