It may be that Applebee is making a move away from its chicken products and is focusing on its catered menu.
The popular chicken franchise is using the same menu and services as its more traditional American franchise, but it’s focused on catering for families, the company announced Tuesday.
The company is also testing new flavors of its cordon bleu salad, a new salad that combines a sweet potato, carrots and celery with chicken, and is testing a new dressing made with tomatoes, green peppers and cilantro.
Applebee said it is also trying to expand its caterers to include families.
The chain is also launching an app for its iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.
