California Pizza Kitchen opens Jan. 22 in Kailua
Advertiser StaffCalifornia Pizza Kitchen will open its first ASAP restaurant in Hawai'i next month as it expands the concept nationwide.
The California Pizza Kitchen ASAP location is scheduled to open on Jan. 22 at the Kailua Town Center and will feature a menu that's similar to the company's four-full service restaurants on O'ahu.
While offering a smaller assortment of pizza, the "fast-casual" restaurant will have a 14-inch diameter pizza not found in its full-service locations, while having expanded lines of sandwiches and soups. The 2,700-square-foot location at 146 Hekili St. will have indoor and outdoor seating.
Los Angeles-based California Pizza Kitchen is in the process of expanding the number of ASAP restaurants it owns and operates. It now operates eight of the company-owned ASAP locations, with another 16 franchise operations located primarily in airports.
