AWESOME TKC READER: APPLEBEE'S STRUGGLES IN KANSAS CITY METRO AMID RECENT RACIAL PROFILING HOT MESS!!!



No matter how locals might feel about a 7-minute-crying-jag for social media vs. mediocre fare . . . Here's a look at the sitch overall for this local chain struggling in the metro . . .

SPECIAL THANKS TO THIS AWESOME TKC READER FOR OUTLINING FAST CASUAL FOODIE DECLINE IN KANSAS CITY!!!

Check the deets:

Applebyebye's???

In late 2016, Applebee's locations in Watts Mill (103rd-StateLine) and the Mall of the Great Plains (Olathe) shuttered.

In May 2017, 3 locations were closed in the area: 8350 N. Church Road near Liberty, 13201 State Line Road in south Kansas City, and 701 S.E. Melody Lane in Lee’s Summit.

The company used the recent controversy at their Independence Center mall location to quickly close that one as well, after the mall went into foreclosure.

This leaves them with about 15 locations across the metro, as they struggle with other fast casual restaurants to retain market share.

Applebee's.......because America can't enough hamburgers!

racial controversy aside, I think the rise of delivery services is driving these places out of business. In other words, the Internet.

I'd much rather get good food from a favorite restaurant than eat some place I don't really want because it's "fast" and convenient.

Overall the quotient of happiness is increased in the world.

Applebees is just old. People get tired of the same thing. I would be curious if the other restaurants they own are absorbing the market share.

I am going to go to one this weekend to show my support.

Applebees and Independence Center both sucked before being labeled as racist

I guess Hip Hop Rap Black Lives Matter Entrepeneurial All You Can Eat Wings And Watermelon Night didn't work out for Applebees.

Tony's Kansas City.......because its readers can barely express themselves coherently.

I avoid dining with black people. If I'm seated near a black table I ask for another one. They're loud, rude, make the biggest messes and are the worst tippers!

That's a good one, are you going on tour.

Please don’t. Your geriatric ass will just fuck up everybody’s meal. You’ll complain and bitch and then not tip. The rancid smell of your fetid diaper will make everyone else sick!

How was it racial profiling? The fat crybaby walked out without paying the day before.

Maybe the blacks just really really don't like their ribs and are pissed they don't have chitlins and collarded greens.

Done just a little upscale and you’ll never see one

^^^^ that’s funny right there!

My son knows the people that had those two hoes thrown out and they have video evidence of these scumbags dining and dashing. They were gonna shut down this store anyway because they’ve had nothing but trouble from the blacks. Applebee’s decided to take the high road and keep this quite unless they absolutely have to expose the truth. The blacks ruin everything

Thanks for the heads up....been wondering where that “fetid” stank was coming from!! You know us Geri’s are on a fixed income, my depends are so costly and it’s a “one and done” product, so I decided to use my 5 day deodorant pads instead!! Apparently I need to cut back to 4 days....thanks for caring enough to speak out and let me know😎

Mom ... she's dead now ... one day decreed that Applebee's was her favorite restaurant. That was when we realized she was in the early stages of dementia/Alzheimer's.
