(PRUnderground) September 7th, 2023
Applebee’s franchisee, Doherty Enterprises, Inc., announced today it’s opening a new Applebee’s To Go in Deer Park, Long Island. The first-of-its-kind concept for the brand will provide quick and convenient service to guests on the go who crave the delicious meals only available at Applebee’s. Like a fast-casual restaurant, this location will include a few dine-in tables without table service in addition to the latest to-go technology, such as pickup lockers. The To Go-only location was also designed to maximize the speed of service for delivery through Applebees.com and partners such as Uber Eats, DoorDash, and GrubHub.
The new Applebee’s To Go official Grand Opening celebration will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 11:30 am E.T. and is located at 403 Commack Road, Deer Park, NY.
Deer Park and neighboring Babylon/West Islip area guests will be able to place an order and pay via Applebees.com or the Applebee’s mobile app (iOS, Google) for quick service of great quality Applebee’s food at this location. After they select the To Go option at checkout, they will be given an estimated pick-up time. Once they arrive at the Applebee’s location on Commack Road during their pick-up time, they will be able to grab their order from one of the innovative new pick-up locker systems that will service both guests and delivery drivers. The new pick-up lockers enable quick, contactless, food order handoff with the click of a smartphone.
