DineEquity Inc. is combining two national brands to form a unique hybrid restaurant in Detroit.
The very first Applebee’s/IHOP restaurant will open by late 2017 in Detroit, according to a recent Nation’s Restaurant News article. DineEquity Inc., based in Glendale, California said the restaurant will take up 11,939-square feet and will be a 300-seat restaurant with franchisee Team Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR).
“TSFR is proud to expand our portfolio by uniquely combining two nationally recognized and family-oriented brands into one hybrid restaurant in the City of Detroit," Schostak said.
The co-branded restaurant will serve both the full Applebee’s menu and a number of IHOP’s breakfast foods and beverages.
