California Pizza Kitchen Inc. recently opened on the campus of Stony Brook University, according to a company statement. The new quick-serve location, the second opened by CPK franchise partner Lackmann Culinary Services, is located in the university's Roth Quad adjacent to student residence halls.
Stony Brook University is located on 1,100 acres of Long Island's north shore, just 60 miles east of New York City. Over 24,000 students will now be able to order from a specialized selection of CPK's most popular pizzas, pastas, salads and panini sandwiches.
Stony Brook University will be hosting an on-campus kick-off party in early February, which will include prizes for the first student to try all CPK menu items as well as a campus-wide vote for their favorite CPK pizza.
Lackmann Culinary Services opened the first California Pizza Kitchen location on a college campus at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y. in August 2009.
