The Krusty Krab is a fictional fast food restaurant in the American animated TV series SpongeBob SquarePants. It was founded by Eugene H. Krabs, who is also the owner. The restaurant has two employees: SpongeBob SquarePants and Squidward Tentacles. Famous for its Krabby Patty sandwiches, it is a rival of Planktons across-the-street restaurant The Chum Bucket and as a result, the character frequently plots schemes to obtain the Krabby Patty formula. The restaurant first appears in the pilot episode, Help Wanted and has since become a common setting in the series.
Aside from SpongeBob SquarePants, the Krusty Krab has also appeared in the shows two film adaptations, The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004) and The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water (2015), and in other related media and merchandise.
