Applebee's to open first restaurant in Hawaii

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Another popular restaurant chain on the Mainland may soon be coming to Ewa Beach in West Oahu.

Pacific Business News reports that Applebee's Neighborhood Bar and Grill has recently pulled a $650,000 building permit for a new location at the new Ewa Town Center.

Next Design LLC, which is reportedly working on the design, have worked on other restaurant projects such as the Vintage Wine Cave Honolulu, Ruby Tuesday Kapolei and the Windward Mall food court.

Applebee's is the latest chain with plans to open Hawaii locations. Others include Dunkin' Donuts and Five Guys Burgers and Fries.

There are nearly 2,000 Applebee's restaurants in every state except Hawaii, as well as 15 international countries and one U.S. territory.
