DineEquity, the parent company of IHOP & Applebees, is committed to going 100 percent cage-free in its egg supply chain. By 2025, all of the eggs served at the company’s U.S. restaurants will be cage-free. DineEquity first took steps to make its egg supply chain cage-free in 2008.

IHOP and Applebees combined have thousands of restaurants in the U.S. that serve eggs everyday. IHOP, in particular, serves 65 different breakfast items, which include egg dishes. That means DineEquity can have a big impact on the egg supply chain in the U.S. through its embrace of cage-free eggs.
