FREE Appetizers!
Applebee’s® Hosts July 21 “Taste The Change” Day
To Showcase Better Food, Better Drinks

Celebrating 35 Years, America’s Largest Casual Dining Restaurant
Will Highlight New Menu of Bar & Grill Classics Via Huge National Giveaway


Kansas City, Mo. (July 8, 2015) – In what may become the largest-ever food sampling event, on July 21 Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar® will offer free sampler plates of its popular new Sriracha Shrimp and Churro S’Mores appetizers to guests.

Applebee’s anticipates serving about two million plates of Sriracha Shrimp and Churro S’Mores during “Taste The Change Day” at nearly 2,000 restaurants across the country. The offer is available to dine-in guests all day, with the option of adding other new appetizers at low sampler prices.

To celebrate its 35th year, the nation’s leading casual dining chain is marking the occasion by showcasing its new and improved menu of craveable bar-and-grill classics. Applebee’s team of executive chefs has taken bar-and-grill classics to new culinary heights by updating them with premium ingredients and signature Applebee’s twists.

New appetizers and sandwiches won rave reviews during a “Taste The Change Fest” event in Times Square in May, where more than 2,000 consumers enjoyed sneak previews of the new items and A-list entertainment that was streamed live across the country via Periscope.

“We put our new items to the test in New York, and people who hadn’t tried us in awhile were blown away at how we’ve improved our food,” said Applebee’s President Steve Layt. “Now we’re giving guests around the country the same sampling opportunity, and we’re confident they will agree: Our new food and drinks are fantastic.”

The evolution of the Applebee’s menu began with the introduction of All-In Burgers® in late 2014, and has continued with the 2015 launch of The Pub Diet™, our lineup of bar-and-grill favorites made a little better for you, 11 new appetizers and several new, over-the-top items – including the stunning Triple Hog Dare Ya™ sandwich, which is stacked high with pulled pork, Black Forest ham and thick-sliced bacon, crispy onions and melted cheddar cheese on a Ciabatta bun.

Two popular new items will be featured at the July 21 free sampling event. The Sriracha Shrimp features quality shrimp, fried with Applebee’s special coating, which provides a light, flaky crunch, then tossed in a Sriracha Chile Lime sauce. New Churro S’Mores are twisted cinnamon churro twists, served with a warm marshmallow and chocolate dip.

But the change at Applebee’s extends beyond the menu and into nearly all facets of the restaurant and its operations. In recent years, franchisees across the country have renovated nearly all Applebee’s restaurants nationwide, and the brand has evolved the look and flavor of its logo, television commercials, Web site, mobile app and more.

The free sampling offer will be available at nearly all Applebee’s locations nationwide on July 21.

Valid at participating locations on 7/21/15 only. Dine in only. Minimum one Sampler per party. Additional Samplers may be provided depending on party size. Selection of sampler(s) provided may vary. No substitutions. See participating restaurant for details.

  17. I wonder if they will have this taste day at the AppleBee's in Plainwell Michigan. We love going to Applebees. My daughter calls it the Apple place because every time we go she has to have her apple slices and the rest of us get the 2 for 20 deal.

    1. It's all of the Applebee's. :) I like that two for $20 deal too.

    2. yes, and it's today. whowhoo. We love taking our family to AppleBees sometimes we choose it over Mcdonalds because to be honest it works out to be around the same price for a family of 6 with the 2 for 20 deals.

  59. I haven't been to Applebees in such a long time. I had almost forgotten about them.

  60. I did not take advantage of this Applebee's special, but I have already sampled their new appetizers when they first came out. My favorite is the won-tons. I also feel like they give you generous portions of the won-tons, nachos, and shrimp. They also give you four large meatballs with a piece of bread and sauce as one app, and it's substantial. The Churro dessert was nice, but way too sweet for me – I ate the marshmallow part, and my sweetie devoured the rest. I think kids would love the Smores treat. One thing I would like to try is the sweet potato fries with the different dips.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I love Applebee's, totally wish I would have taken advantage of this awesome deal... maybe they'll do something like this again soon. :)
