With $1.1 billion in sales and directly employing over 25,000 people, Apple American is the largest Applebee’s franchisee, and is one of the two largest franchisees of any concept in the United States.
Founded in 1998 by Chairman and CEO Greg Flynn, Apple American is committed to growth. It is the fastest growing operator in the Applebee's system, having built and/or acquired more than 235 restaurants in the last three years alone.
As growth continues, Apple American remains dedicated to making every location a truly neighborhood restaurant responsive to the needs of each guest, each employee, and each community.
To facilitate this, Apple American is built on a substantially decentralized business model. Each geographic region is led by a Market President who operates his or her market with great local autonomy while receiving administrative and financial support from the central organization.
Coupling local empowerment with deep resources and high standards, Apple American Group strives to be the premier franchise group in the Applebee’s system. By doing so, we provide exceptional casual dining experiences to our guests, rewarding career opportunities to our employees, and superior profits to our shareholders.
