Sad news coming out for fans of the popular restaurant chain Applebee’s.

It was announced today that due to poor second quarter earnings, the parent company of Applebee’s has decided to close over 100 locations ranging from 105 to 135  locations across the country.

This possibly could affect San Diego but no information to what locations have been disclosed.

DineEquity, the parent company, did mention that closures would be based on “several criteria, including franchisee profitability, operational results and meeting our brand quality standards.”
