“We understand first-hand how much folks are trying to juggle COVID-19-related distance work and school schedules right now. As a service-minded company, we’re always adapting and looking to find innovative ways to reach our guests at CPK, so we wanted to provide a few easy and affordable lunch options both kids and parents will get excited about, especially during such a hectic re-adjustment period,” said Ashley Ceraolo, Senior Vice President of Marketing at CPK. “We hope these new offerings will encourage additional family mealtime and provide a midday touchpoint for conversation over delicious food, at-home or in-restaurant. No matter how you choose to dine with us – lunchtime this fall is one less thing for parents to have to worry about, and something kids can look forward to.”

Additionally, and for increased value throughout the entire month of September, CPK Rewards members will receive 20 bonus points for every CPKids meal purchased.

Beyond CPK’s back-to-school meal specials and to take the Company’s dedication to community engagement one step further, the nationwide pizza chain is also partnering with local schools this fall to conduct an online gift card fundraiser to kick off the new term. Participating schools can raise money by selling CPK gift cards and will, in turn, receive 10% back from every gift card they sell.
