Dodgers News: Partnership Brings California Pizza Kitchen To Dodger Stadium

The Los Angeles Dodgers announced a multi-year partnership with California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) to make the famed Southern California-based restaurant chain the team’s official pizza.

“Creating best-in-class dining at Dodger Stadium is essential for delivering a World Championship-level fan experience for our fans, which is why we’re thrilled to partner with a global brand famous for innovative and iconic California cuisine,” Dodgers vice president of global partnerships Corey Norkin said in a statement.

“We look forward to a long and collaborative relationship with our new partners, and know our fans will enjoy the inspiring and delicious food items at CPK’s Dodger Stadium locations.”

California Pizza Kitchen chief marketing officer Scott Hargrove added: “This partnership unites two Southern California brands that are woven into the fabric and spirit of Los Angeles. The LA Dodgers brought baseball to the West Coast and CPK brought the West Coast to pizza.

“As two brands with a shared commitment to driving innovation, and supporting the LA community, we couldn’t think of a better partnership to share the love of pizza and baseball to fans across our hometown of Los Angeles.”

The agreement calls for four CPK locations to be installed at Dodger Stadium on the Field, Loge, and Reserve Levels along with the newly renovated Left Field Pavilion. Each of the four CPK dining locations will offer a selection of their signature dishes.

The CPK Dodger Stadium menu will consists of original BBQ chicken, pepperoni and cheese pizzas made on traditional crust; original BBQ chicken chopped salad; Caesar salad; spinach artichoke dip; spicy Milano pizza and the option of a gluten-free vegetable-powered crust.

There additionally will be select CPK food offerings available at the new Grab and Go concession stand located in center field.

Furthermore, following all home wins during the regular season, CPK will provide fans the opportunity to claim a free seven-inch original BBQ chicken, pepperoni, or traditional cheese pizza at select Southern California locations.

In addition, CPK will be prominently featured throughout Dodger Stadium touchpoints, including permanent signage on the Left Field Pavilion roof.

Dodgers welcoming 11,000 fans to Dodger Stadium per game

With L.A. County recently moving into the red tier, the Dodgers gained approval to have fans in attendance for 20% of Dodger Stadium’s capacity. That amounts to 11,200, but the team indicated in an email to season-ticket holders their plan is to welcome 11,000 fans per home game.
