The Applebee’s menu principally focuses on casual dining, with mainstream traditional bowls like salads, chicken and shrimp. Most of Applebee’s eateries feature a bar locality and it serves alcohol-dependent beverages where legally allowed.

The Applebee’s chain was set in motion by Bill and T. J. Palmer who opened their first eatery called T.J. Applebee’s Rx for Edibles & Elixirs, in Decatur, Georgia, in 1980. As soon as it gained foothold, the duo suggested the business to W. R. Grace and Co in 1983. As a part of the deal, Bill was made the foremost executive of Applebee’s Division, which was a subsidiary of W. R. Grace and Co. In that capability, Palmer administered methods which saw the firm rise from its entrepreneurial beginnings to a complete franchise.  Resultantly, he turned out to be Applebee’s franchisee in 1985 and nowadays owns over 3 dozen Applebee’s restaurants.

In 1986, the name of the business was altered to Applebee’s Grill & Bar to allude to the Palmers’ original idea. In the year 1988, Applebee’s International, Inc., became the food chain’s franchiser when Kansas City franchisees Abe Gustin and John Hamra acquired the privileges to the Applebee’s rights from W. R. Grace. Between 1993 to 2005, Applebee’s opened one hundred or so outlets.  It is estimated that the business has at least 3,000 restaurants in Continental USA.
