Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
Applebee’s has been around since the early ’80s, so it’s no surprise that they’re a little behind when it comes to food trends. They’re nearing 40, after all! The chain has attempted to target the younger generation by introducing an app and online ordering service and delivery. They’ve also tried to introduce some healthier menu options for the millenials to enjoy. Still, in 2018, 90 Applebee’s restaurants closed and they plan to cut another 20 before 2019 is out.
