Struggling to find the next best place to have your child’s birthday party? You’ll want to check out the new California Pizza Kitchen (CPK), now open in Franklin’s CoolSprings Galleria. “CPKids parties are a fun, interactive way to inspire kids to think about the food they’re eating, to learn about the importance of fresh ingredients and to experience the joy that comes with making food,” says Brandon Parker, CPK Cool Springs general manager. “Parents love that the kids are introduced to new foods, and the kids are proud to show off their delicious pizza creations.” Parties at CPK are designed for kids 10 and younger in groups of 15 - 20. Typical parties last one to two hours and include a restaurant tour; interactive pizza making experience behind the counter with a variety of fresh, colorful toppings; a kid’s meal with drink, refills and dessert from the kids’ menu for each child; a CPKids souvenir cup, activity book and crayons as well as a Free CPKids Meal Certificate for each child’s next visit. The birthday child also receives a CPKids chef jacket! Cost is $10 per child and includes all of the activities above. Book your party two weeks in advance between 9 - 11:30 a.m. or 3 - 5 p.m., or reserve online at cpk.com/company/cpkids. CPK is located at 1800 Galleria Blvd., Franklin.
