CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, December 19 - December 25, 1997 - 53 Applebee s Grill &amp; Bar opens doors at Rehoboth Outlets By Jen Ellingsworth There's a new neighbor in the Cape Region. Located in the Rehoboth Out- lets 3, Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar opened its doors Mon- day, Dec. 15. General Manager John Lunsmann cut the ribbon for the 175-seat establishment, owned by Apple South, Inc., a multicon- cept restaurant company based out of Madison, Ga. The establishment sent out 500 invitations to its Very Important Neighbor (VIN) event on Sunday, Dec. 14. Community and busi- ness members were invited to en- joy a complimentary lunch during the soft opening event, and a $5 donation for the Children's Beach House in Lewes was accepted at the door. Lunsmann said Sun- day's event netted more than $1,200 for the organization. How'd they build so fast? That's the burning question in many people's minds these days. While most agree the establish- ment is a welcome addition to the area, the expeditious rate at which the physical structure went up left locals and visitors in a State of dis- belief. Lunsmann said the .company has an ambitious system it uses in building new restaurants. "Applebee's - Apple South - has a system of putting up restau- rants," he said. "It takes 60 days from start to finish. The first two weeks, it looks like a box. The last two weeks, it's a building."
