Los Angeles-based casual dining chain California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) has posted same store sales up 5.1% for the Q2 ended 30 June 2002, versus 3.3% in the same period a year ago. Accordingly, CPK expects total revenues to grow by approximately 25% in the Q2 to around US$75.6m. The same store sales growth for the quarter was due to several factors including an approximate 2.5% increase in menu pricing that took effect in May and November 2001, changes in menu mix, and traffic growth.
