OMD to Applebee’s: Add a Plant-Based
Entrée to Your Menu!

Did you know that Applebee’s, one of the nation’s largest restaurant chains, doesn’t offer a single plant-based or even one vegetarian entrée at almost all of its locations? Right now, the chain is piloting the Impossible Burger at some of its New York restaurants, but the rest of its restaurants still don’t have a single plant-based entrée option.

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.
