National restaurant brand California Pizza Kitchen opens today, October 9, in the CoolSprings Galleria, marking its second Nashville-area location.
New menu items coinciding with the new location include protein-packed power bowls, cauliflower-crusted pizzas, and craft cocktails, in addition to the hand-tossed pizzas, pastas, and other dishes the large brand is known for.
Featuring indoor and outdoor seating as well as a standalone bar in the center of the mall, the location showcases CPK’s updated California-inspired look with reclaimed elements (skateboard pieces flank a few walls) and sustainable materials, plus touches of Nashville to fill the space.
In 1985, CPK opened its first restaurant in Beverly Hills and introduced diners to innovative California-style pizza. Today, CPK is a global brand serving creative California cuisine in more than 250 restaurants in 13 countries and U.S. territories.
California Pizza Kitchen Franklin’s hours are Sunday – Thursday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Friday -Saturday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. The other Nashville location of CPK is located in Green Hills.
