Deer Park is home to the world’s first Applebee’s To Go. It was built out this spring and summer at 403 Commack Road.
“Enjoying your favorite Applebee’s entrees and appetizers when you’re ‘on the go’ has never been easier,” said Kurt Pahlitzsch of Applebee’s franchisee Doherty Enterprises, Inc. “We’re committed to finding new ways to meet the needs of our guests so they can enjoy the meals they love from Applebee’s in a convenient and efficient way.”
The brand’s milestone was marked with a grand opening celebration on Tuesday, Sept. 12, at 11 a.m.
How it works
This first-of-its-kind concept for the brand provides quick service for Applebee’s lovers who don’t have time to hang around.
Like a fast-casual restaurant, Applebee’s To Go includes a few dine-in tables without table service, in addition modern to-go technology, such as pickup lockers.
The To Go-only location was designed to maximize speed of service for delivery through Applebees.com and partners such as Uber Eats, DoorDash, and GrubHub, the release states.
Those that order online directly through the Applebee’s will be given an estimated pickup time, as well as a designated pickup locker. The lockers will also be available for third-party delivery drivers. The location is also expected to offer various bar beverages to-go for adults over 21, according to Applebee’s.
