California Pizza Kitchen
As earlier mentioned, the type of business model a retail store boasts might lead to its eventual downfall. California Pizza Kitchen has been historically associated with the sit-down model, and with quarantine kicking in, the Kitchen, unfortunately, filed for bankruptcy in early 2020. As part of its staying afloat strategy, the Pizza kitchen quickly switched to takeout services and ended up losing most of its non-profitable stores. Although the Pizza Kitchen owners remain optimistic about the brand’s potential, only time will tell how much longer they can hold on.
