The news that Applebee's plans on closing up to 135 of their restaurants has a lot of Twin Ports food fans worried:  Would the local Applebee's locations be included on the list?  The answer - according to the Superior Telegram - is no.

The franchise owner of the Duluth, Superior, and Cloquet locations issued their own statement confirming that none of their restaurants will be included on the list.  The owner of our local Applebee's is actually a San Francisco company called Apple American Group.
