February 01, 2013 // Franchising.com // LOS ANGELES – California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), the authority on California-style pizza and creator of the Original BBQ Chicken Pizza, is proud to announce their partnership with Colby Red, a beautifully crafted wine whose proceeds support charities that promote heart health. CPK has also launched a special Valentine’s Day menu for two that will be available from Thursday, February 14 through Sunday, February 17, 2013.
Colby Red is a wine inspired by Colby Groom who endured two back to back open-heart surgeries as a child and enlisted his winemaker father to create a wine that raises money to help others. California Pizza Kitchen will proudly support this cause by serving Colby Red wine by the glass or bottle across all of its locations through the end of April. Additionally, the company will donate up to $10,000 to charities that focus on heart health throughout the course of the year. Colby Red is a bold, flavorful California cuvee with rich fruit flavors and a soft finish and pairs well with their Original BBQ Chicken Pizza.
“We are so inspired by Colby and are honored to feature Colby Red wine on our menu to help raise awareness for a great cause,” said G.J. Hart, Chief Executive Officer for California Pizza Kitchen. “We are committed to donating up to $10,000 this year to charities that are focused on heart health. Valentine’s Day also presents a unique opportunity for us to spread the message of heart health while couples share a special three-course meal together. We encourage guests to toast each other with a glass or bottle of Colby Red this Valentine’s Day.”
California Pizza Kitchen will be offering guests a special Valentine’s Day menu for two that includes an appetizer, two entrees and a dessert for $30. The promotion will run over Valentine’s Day weekend for four days from Thursday, February 14 through Sunday, February 17.
