Anti-gun response from applebees

Postby MitchSchaft » Fri Jun 06, 2003 2:02 pm

Saw this on another forum

I am pleased that you are a guest of Applebee’s in San Antonio and I hope your patronage will continue but it will not continue with you carrying a concealed weapon into one of our restaurants. We have a notice posted in all of our lobbies asking that this not occur.

they don't have to since they serve alcohol. it's illegal to carry there because of that. seems like that's the last time i'll be eating at applebees. :(

Applebee's response

Postby Guest » Mon Jun 09, 2003 4:51 pm

Ok, this got my blood boiling and I wrote the president of Applejam (Franchise for Applebees in Texas), and I received the following reply.

Dear Douglas,

A message from Frank DeAngelo, President of Applejam of Texas, Inc.:

Thank you for your note. I have determined that my Applejam Applebee's
restaurants will be consistent with our parent company's (Applebee's International) practice of not posting signs prohibiting licensed, concealed handguns. Therefore, in the Applejam of Texas' Applebee's restaurants, we will not post signs prohibiting licensed, concealed handguns.

I look forward to your continued patronage of your local Applebee's
Neighborhood Grill & Bar.

Sincerely,

Frank DeAngelo

Mute point with Applebee's

As was already pointed out, since they do serve alcohol, whether they have posted or not, in Tennessee we still can't legally carry on premises. We just can't seem to get that bill through the legislature..... at least not yet anyway. :(

That I know; I was just supporting other people in states that do allow you go carry into a restaurant.
Interesting fact, MI, which became a shall carry state about three years ago, just passed a law, effective July 1, to allow carry into restaurants that serve alcoholic beverages. MI, is a rather liberal state too.

There are still some "dry" counties in Tennessee, where no alcohol can be served by the drink in a restaurant. I assume that as long as the individual restaurant doesn't serve alcohol and is not posted, you can carry, even if the rest of the chain does serve alcohol.

One case that I know of personally, the O'charley's in Pigeon Forge, does not serve alcohol (as of my last visit in '02). I didn't notice a posted warning on the door, as I left the gun in the car out of habbit before going into a restaurant.

There are some restrictions on that too. Just moved from there. it has something to do with the amount of alcohol sold. this determines if you can carry or not. like an applebees has most of their income from food then it would be ok. but say Joes bar that gets most of his revenue fom drinks then that would be a no no.

I was in the Applebee's in Athens Tn a couple weeks ago and they have a sign that reads" No Handguns Permitted Regardless Of State Law"
