The lore of Garfield has undergone a number of renditions throughout the comic's history. There was the webcomic "Garfield Minus Garfield" which removed the character of Garfield from the comics altogether, leaving Jon Arbuckle alone in his home, frequently talking to himself and his aloof, silent cat. And now, the comic's universe includes the strange franchise known as "Garfield Eats" whose official slogan of "Love Me, Feed Me, Don't Leave" borrowed from the comic's "Love me, feed me, never leave me." The restaurant owners described its creation as their "destiny" and in response to the restaurant, Jim Davis stated "A Garfield-shaped pizza...In 40 years, no one has ever come to me with such a crazy idea..." This quote was made after Davis saw the Garfield movie. The Garfield Eats menu included chocolate Garfuccinos, the Big Agna (lasagna), the Garnivore pizza. The restaurant shuttered in 2021.
