Applebee’s history started in 1980 when TJ and Bill Palmer opened T.J. Applebee’s Rx for Edibles and Elixirs in Atlanta. In 1983, they sold the concept to W.R. Grace and Co., and by 1985, Bill Palmer became an Applebee’s franchisee. By 1989, Applebee’s opened its 100th restaurant in Nashville, and by 2002, Applebee’s grew to 1,500 restaurants.

At the turn of the 21st century, Applebee’s started a new era—introducing a new menu and expanded its reach to Latin America and the Middle East. Applebee’s introduced their Great Tasting and Under 550 Calories menu in 2010 and it continues to revitalize its restaurants, remodeling interiors, offering more selections, and improving its service.

One of the ways by which Applebee’s revitalizes its customer service is by getting their customers’ opinions and feedback about their experience when they dined at an Applebee’s restaurant. They created the Applebee’s Guest Experience Survey for this purpose and participating in the survey gives you a chance to win $1000 daily. There’s also a weekly sweepstakes that draws out 3 winners of $500 each, as well as an iPod Nanon instant prize daily.
