About Applebees

Applebee's is a casual dining restaurant with the motto "There's no place like the neighborhood." The restaurant first opened in 1980, when partners Bill and TJ Palmer created an Atlanta, Georgia, establishment called T.J. Applebee's Rx for Edibles & Elixirs. Although the two sold the brand to W.R. Grace and Company in 1983, Bill Palmer renewed his ties with the restaurant when he became an Applebee's franchisee two years later. In 1986, the restaurant officially changed its name to Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar. The restaurant eventually expanded throughout the continent of North America and now operates more than 2,000 locations.[2]

Today, Applebees continues to offer a large, constantly evolving menu and has added amenities such as carside to go services. The restaurant also offers gift cards, an online restaurant locator, an online menu, detailed nutrition and allergen information, franchises, and social networking pages.[1]
