Applebee is an American company establishing, franchising, and operating the restaurant chain of Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill + Bar.
The idea of Applebee focuses on casual dishes that include mainstream American meals such as pasta, salads, burgers, chicken, and ‘riblets’ – the signature dish of Applebee’s.
In every Applebee’s restaurant, you will find a bar zone where alcoholic drinks are served (with the exception of those prohibited by law).
How big it is
You can find Applebee’s in 15 countries of the world, including Egypt, Brazil, Greece, Honduras, Indonesia, Lebanon, Kuwait, SA, Guatemala, China, and others.
And they are still expanding across the world and hire about 28,000 employees. The largest Applebee’s in the world is situated just north of New York City’s Times Square: a massive, almost 40 feet high restaurant.

Applebee’s closing time

Applebee’s was established by Bill and T.J. Palmer in Decatur, Georgia. Applebee’s name was influenced by a restaurant named Billy’s, which was popular in Atlanta in the 70s.
Cinnamon’s and Pepper’s were among other restaurant name options that had great chances to go live. And Appleby’s seemed to sound rather unpleasantly (with the same pronunciation) among the rest. Luckily, trademarks and license issues made the owners choose the name we know.
The first Applebee’s venue was opened in Decatur, Georgia, and a few years later, in Atlanta, Georgia, they opened the second location. Applebee’s was one of the biggest sit-down restaurant chains in the United States’ in the 1990s. The 1000th restaurant of Applebee’s opened in 1998.

Applebee’s near me
It is interesting that you will never get recipes for any menu item according to Applebee’s proprietary and confidentiality policy. Important industry awards like “America’s Best Managed Companies” from Forbes and “Chain of the Year” from Hospitality Magazine differentiate Applebee from other fast-casual chains. Particularly because it was concerned for its people and their work, being recognized for providing a stable career and promoting development.
Applebee had a marketing campaign focusing on fresh ingredients and new foods between 2012 and 2016. The fast-service restaurant chain made its unexpected return in 2018 after struggling to appeal to millennials and closing more than 150 stores between 2017 and 2018.
Cheap drinks saved them when anything else did not work. Introduced in October 2017, Applebee’s famous $1 Margaritas began a “cheap drinks revolution” that helped to revert the restaurant to its success.
Applebee’s decided to take the syrup off children’s menus supporting IHOP, Burger King, Wendy’s, Dairy Queen, Panera, and Subway.
It’s interesting that Applebee’s still has an old-school take-out service, introduced in 2004 when Applebee’s’ workers drive-in the diner to you warm and give it to you right through your car window.
After 9 p.m., the food will still be half-priced. And every day, this offer is valid and waits for you.
Mission and vision
Applebee’s mission is to help all people they connect with to develop, enrich, and enjoy. And the vision sees every Applebee’s as an integral part of any neighborhood’s social, psychological, and economic growth.
