"Our latest campaign rides on the massive popularity of "selfies", Oxford Dictionary's 2013 Word of the Year," says Archie Rodriguez, President and CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts Inc., the local partner of CPK. "People come to us for memorable dining experience of unique pizzas. As we believe that every pizza tells a story, we invite our guests to share their fun CPK moments on social media and reward them with special pizza treats."
CPK Philippines is the first franchise to operate outside the United States. As a testament to its popularity in the country, the restaurant has been expanding its presence for 16 years, now with eight branches in the metro plus one in Harbor Point Mall in Subic, its first branch outside the metro.
Start your meal at CPK with the classic Spinach and Artichoke Dip (P 425), a rich and creamy dip with blue and white nachos. The crisp nachos and the creamy spinach artichoke dip combine for both flavor and texture in every crunchy bite, always a winner at CPK.
Or go for the refreshing Thai Crunch Salad (P 575 Full/P 345 Half), a delightful salad with crisp, fresh greens and cilantro with chicken topped with peanuts, edamamae, wontons and rice sticks tossed in a flavorful Thai Peanut dressing.
Winning posts will be rewarded with one of CPK's signature favorites, including CPK's classic Five Cheese + Fresh Tomato, your favorite all cheese pizza, all grown up. Topped with sliced tomatoes, basil, fresh Mozzarella, Monterey Jack, smoked Gouda, Mozzarella, and Pecorino Romano.
And CPK's Original BBQ Chicken, the one that started it all. Topped with smoked Gouda, red onions, and CPK's signature chicken with BBQ sauce and cilantro, a true CPK Original. Or CPK's Untraditional Cheese Pizza, with Mozzarella and fresh Mozzarella. A CPK Pizza Voucher will be emailed to winners with complete details on how to redeem their prize. A participant will only be rewarded once, regardless of the number of selfie or groupie entries. Submissions will be accepted until April 13, 2014.
And I found a new favorite at CPK...The Sicilian (P 695), a crispy thin crust pizza topped with Italian sausage, spicy Capicola ham, salami, Mozzarella, shaved Parmesan, basil, and oregano.
How about a pizza for dessert? Leave it to CPK to create another unique pizza, the S'mores Pizza (P 170), CPK's classic pizza dough with butter, crushed Graham crackers, dark Belgian chocolate, marshmallows, and walnuts, topped with a rich and smooth vanilla ice cream.
A sweet ending to another memorable dining experience at CPK. And since the first CPK branch outside the US opened in Manila way back in 1988, you can expect more good things to come from CPK.
And here's a cool pizza story. Noel Araneta has been with CPK from the very beginning, rising through the ranks and eventually becoming CPK's Head Pizza Chef. His son has also joined CPK, and currently working his way up the kitchen, learning the ropes from the CPK Pizza Guru himself, his own dad. An inspiring story, I'm pretty sure loyal CPK fans have loads of fun moments and stories to share. So what's your CPK pizza story? Eat. Snap. Upload. Share the love starting February 24, and you just might get a cool pizza from CPK...
