The recent announcement that 135 Applebee’s restaurants will be closed does not include the one in Flemington.
Dine Equity Inc., parent company for Applebee’s and IHOP franchises, announced the nationwide closings earlier this month.
But the nationwide closures will not affect the local Applebee’s, which is owned by Apple American Group, a subsidiary of Flynn Restaurant Group.
Apple American Group issued a statement saying they, “Wanted to assure our valued guests and employees that this announcement in no way affects franchised Applebee’s locations that we own and operate,” Apple American Group CEO Greg Flynn said.
AAG also owns the Applebee’s in Pooler and two in Savannah.
