“The company said that they were looking into the issue and will review the information as soon as possible.”
The company’s response to the new issue is a sign of a company that is taking its role as a leading retailer of low-cost items seriously.
Last year, Applebee said it was taking action to help prevent such incidents.
The company said it had already worked with local restaurants to offer a “free meal” option and “more limited-time promotions.”
The company also added in an email that “all locations will be equipped with Applebees’ mobile devices to allow customers to easily check in and redeem their coupons.”
