DineEquity to Close 160 Applebee’s and IHOP Units


Glendale, Calif.-based DineEquity has announced plans to shutter up to 160 Applebee’s and IHOP restaurants. The announcement comprises a larger number of closures than originally announced during the first quarter of 2017. DineEquity did not release a list of the locations slated for closure.

According to USA Today, the company will close 105 to 135 Applebee’s locations and an estimated 20 to 25 IHOP outposts. Both chains are, however, expected to open 125 new international locations between them.

DineEquity operates more than 3,700 restaurants across 19 countries.
