The expansion furthers CPK’s strategic international growth plans following its recent announcement of openings in the Philippines, South Korea, and recently the newly renovated Salt Lake City International Airport.

“CPK grew from its passion in combining fresh, seasonal ingredients with flavor inspirations from around the world. Morpho’s commitment to high quality products and the celebration of local cultures and communities makes them the ideal partner for CPK’s continued global expansion,” says Giorgio Minardi, Executive Vice President of Global Development & Franchise Operations at CPK. “Morpho’s partnership represents the continued strength of the CPK brand, its innovative products, and high- quality service.”

CPK opened its first restaurant in Beverly Hills in 1985 and introduced diners to innovative pizzas, with new flavors, which has characterized the chain. CPK has more than 200 restaurants in eight countries and territories of the United States.

The company said the agreement with Morpho allows it to access openings at Latin American airports.
