What Makes California Pizza Kitchen Special?
We’re glad you asked! We’re passionate about many things, but our people are at the top of the list. Ask any one of our team members what they love most about working at California Pizza Kitchen, and most will say “THE PEOPLE!” Our KINDNESS Fund was created to help our own team members troubled by sudden financial emergencies due to catastrophes or crises. Whether the issue is a natural disaster or funeral expenses for the loss of a loved one, team members in need may benefit from donated funds from fellow employees. It’s a circle of kindness we’re quite proud of.
We foster a culture of innovation and ownership, especially with our managers. We want you to be creative, run your own store, and take the reins so we can grow to new levels. Sound good? We think so!
Contributing to our communities is another topper on our list. We give our managers free reign to go out there and get involved in the community with charity events, fundraisers, and random acts of kindness; anything your heart desires!
