And the closings will happen this year... Are the Rochester locations safe?

Unfortunately, there are no details about which stores are closing. At this time, they're saying up to 135 restaurants could close this year. According to parent company DineEquity, those closures will be based on criteria including profitability, operational results and quality standards.

The release also noted planned closures of 20 to 25 IHOP locations. Those specific locations were not provided either.

I feel like Applebee's is always busy when I go there (either one in all reality). Do you think one of ours will close?
