Applebee's Launches Riblets for Relief Program in an Effort to Support Hurricane Sandy Victims

Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar restaurants launch Riblets for Relief in an effort to support the Hurricane Sandy Relief through the American Red Cross.

During this time, Applebee’s will donate 10 percent of all Riblet Platter purchases to Hurricane Sandy Relief through the American Red Cross.

We look forward to working in partnership with the American Red Cross to support the restoration of the East Coast.”

Applebee’s has recently undergone restaurant renovations, focusing on healthier living and community building. Along with consistent efforts to give back in their communities through charitable work and donations, Applebee’s looks forward to aiding those affected by Hurricane Sandy.
