Applebee’s: Add Plant-Based Entrées to All Your Menus!
Did you know that Applebee’s, the largest casual dining chain in the world, doesn’t offer a single plant-based entrée at the majority of its locations? Instead of delicious and healthy options for all customers, its menus are full of artery-clogging, emissions-heavy meat and dairy entrées. With more than 1,900 restaurants across the U.S., we know Applebee’s can do better by offering plant-based entrée options at all its restaurants (like its competitor, Chili’s) and be an industry leader instead of behind the curve.

The Price of Meat and Dairy:
Animal Agriculture: Animal agriculture is a leading cause of climate change, deforestation, biodiversity loss, and water pollution worldwide.
Chronic Illness: Eating too much animal protein (66% of Americans eat more than the recommended daily amount) comes with increased risk of chronic illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, and several cancers.
WE NEED BETTER CHOICES WHEN EATING OUT.
For the first time in history, people are eating out more often than they’re cooking at home — and what we eat is driven by what’s available. Just adding a single plant-based entreé to the menu would improve access to foods with a much lower carbon footprint, give people more power to make better choices for their own health, and protect our planet.
