Applebee’s, like all other restaurants and businesses, is required to follow location-specific mandates during the coronavirus pandemic. Applebee’s President, John Cywinski, announced some restaurants were reopening for dine-in options May 1. You can read his message in full here.
“We know how important the safety of our restaurants is to you. It’s important to us too. I can assure you that we have a safety-first mindset in our preparations as we ready our teams and restaurants for providing you a welcomed escape from your time at home,” his statement said. “We’ve been hard at work considering every detail of your visit from the moment you drive onto our parking lots to the moment we thank you for visiting us. Our decisions will be thoughtful and intentional. As you can imagine, it’s going to look a bit different. It won’t be business as usual. And it may not look the same in each restaurant, since each of our franchisees will be following local and state mandates. But protecting you and team members is our top priority. This is an evolving situation, and I personally appreciate your patience and understanding as our restaurants move toward full service again.”
The message goes onto say that the restaurants are following strict cleaning and sanitation guidelines and employees will wear face coverings. A limited menu will be offered, and it will be printed in a single-use, disposable format. Dining rooms will be set up to ensure social distancing.
