Rabobank played a leading role in the California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) $195 million senior secured debt refinancing announced by the company in October 2021.

The financing will give CPK additional flexibility to build on its business momentum, including strong consumer demand for its core menu categories and significant growth in its off-premise business. The national restaurant chain operates in the polished casual dining space with a focus on fresh ingredients and innovative, on-trend menu items. The company restructured in late 2020 and is looking to expand its global footprint and continue to introduce menu innovations.

The financing, which was provided by Rabobank and Canyon Partners, resulted in a significant reduction in interest expense and reduced leverage. The refinancing of the company’s current credit facilities includes a $15 million RLOC, a $170 million TL and a $10 million DDTL (Rabobank holds 100% of the RLOC).
