Evansville Applebee’s Location Is Now Closed
The Evansville Applebee's restaurant is now closed.
Earlier this year, USA Today reported that Dining Brands Global, the parent company for both Applebee's and IHOP (who will be changing their name to IHOB on June 11th, 2018), would be closing up to 120 locations throughout the country. They stated:
Some 60 to 80 more Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar and 30 to 40 more IHOP restaurants will be closed. The parent, Dine Brands Global, looks to acquire and grow small chains in the hot fast-casual segments that offer ethnic and healthy food.
No exact reason was given for the shuttering of the Evansville location. At the time of this article, no other Wyoming locations are set to close.
An anonymous inside source has states that Applebee's may rebuild and/or open in a different location in the future, but no time frame has been given on this speculation.
