Tyler Florence and Applebees
 
Has anyone seen these commercials?! He has joined teams with (cr)Applebees to create a line of "chef inspired" cuisine. I think I might now, I might have seen it all...except someone nailing jello to a tree.

Let's see ... Applebees' is attempting to improve the quality of food they serve ... and you have a problem with that?

Truth to tell, I've never been to an Appleby's. I had read somewhere that they were the most consistently bad chain of their kind :sick: so I have avoided them.

A new Appleby's opened in town recently, maybe I should give it a try. I hope the Tyler Florence items are clearly marked.:lol:

No, no problem at all...just seems like an odd match up. seems like alot of TV personalities in the food industry are pairing up with unlikely partners...just an observation.

They are not so bad Andy.
It's not GREAT food but..it's not bad either.
They do have a really good veggie pizza or at least they did
a few years ago.

AND THIS IS MY POINT TOO! they have the reputation of being, ummm....well, garbage. Why would a chef sign on to that!

say it aint so!<insert sarcasim>...Would it really be worth it?

TF is getting recognition. That makes demand for his cookbooks and other products greater. That drives the price up and his next cookbook flies off the shelf. People run out and buy his stuff. I think he has a restaurant - more customers.

If Appleby's improves their image, Tyler gets the credit. His value increases again. Other food companies seek him out for endorsements...

I'd say it's worth it.
