Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar has launched a line of wood-fired grill salads, the company announced Tuesday.
Applebee’s, a subsidiary of restaurant holding company DineEquity Inc. in Glendale, began a $75 million rebranding campaign last month that included the installation of wood-fired grills at its U.S. locations. The new salads will highlight the wood-cooked flavor by incorporating steak, shrimp and chicken prepared on the grills.
The salads have a menu price of $8.99.
“Our new Wood Fired Grill salads truly stand out and offer our guests an unexpected salad that has all the best flavors of summer," Cammie Spillyards-Schaefer, vice president and executive chef at Applebee’s, said in a statement.
DineEquity shares on Tuesday closed up 19 cents or a fraction of 1 percent to $84.23 on the New York Stock Exchange.
