We value, encourage and recognize the diversity of our workforce.

Above and Beyond

The Heidi Fund was established in 2002 in honor of Heidi Tomassi, an Applebee's server in Olathe, Kansas. At the time, Heidi's 4-month-old son was suffering from a rare heart defect. After two open-heart surgeries, she and her husband were deeply in debt. But when one of her customers accidentally left behind $3,300 in cash, Heidi instinctively did the right thing and returned the money. Her kindness was repaid with an outpouring of financial support from others. To honor Heidi, the Heidi Fund was created to provide financial assistance to other team members at who work for Applebee’s, IHOP or Dine Brands Global who also find themselves in a financial crisis brought on by a catastrophic life event. Recent donations have been made to victims of the earthquakes in Mexico as well as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
