Today, California Pizza Kitchen announces its official opening at the brand new and highly-anticipated Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC)– an enormous $4.1 billion “cathedral to transport” and the very first major center airport replacement of the 21st century. In conjunction with the grand opening of the first stage of The New SLC, CPK’s latest airport dining establishment location will supply both domestic travelers and worldwide jet-setters with a wide array of fresh and imaginative menu products made-to-order, consisting of California-style hand-tossed pizzas, healthful salads, top quality sandwiches, craft cocktails, specialty breakfast menu products, and more. Operated in collaboration with HMSHost, a world leader and specialist in food and beverage services for travel locations, CPK at The New SLC is located in Concourse A West and open from 8:30 a.m.– 5 p.m. daily.
Presently the biggest public works project in the history of Utah and currently marked by the absolute best in fully-immersive art, design, innovation, media, retail, and transportation– CPK is proud and honored to be a part of this landmark moment by partnering with one of the country’s most awe-inspiring and gold-standard international aviation hubs.
“CPK opening at The New SLC is a cause for celebration on so many levels – from our dedicated team at HMSHost, whose steadfast commitment to this project has been unstoppable, to the new state-of-the-art airport terminal with a development team determined to provide only best-in-class amenities for the most discerning travelers – we can’t wait to bring our innovative and globally-inspired cuisine to everyone who visits this unparalleled cutting-edge hub from all over the world,” said Giorgio Minardi, Executive Vice President of Global Development & Franchise Operations at CPK. “While the global pandemic has been challenging for all, the future remains bright for CPK, and as part of our reinvigorated expansion efforts, we are excited to serve airport guests from this absolutely stunning new location in Salt Lake City.”
CPK’s fresh and distinct California brand-style is expressed throughout the brand-new restaurant in an unwinded yet fine-tuned visual that is consistent throughout the space. Tourists will be welcomed by natural light pouring in through large rear windows as sun gets drawn into the room and reflects versus CPK’s signature yellow glass tile wall. This welcoming and energetic atmosphere offers tourists the supreme raised dining experience, whether they are seeking a full-service meal, a dynamic bar atmosphere, or a hassle-free take-out window where one can get a fast tasty bite and a cup of coffee before or after a flight.
“The national brand power of California Pizza Kitchen, paired with HMSHost’s leading airport restaurant expertise, will offer travelers a delicious and safe dining experience at the new SLC terminal,” said Stephanie Havard, EVP, Restaurant Development at HMSHost. “Our expansion into the state-of-the-art SLC location is a result of our strong collaborative partnership and with the airport and the brand, and we couldn’t be more excited for the opportunity!”
