The franchise owner of Applebee’s Grill & Bar restaurants throughout Ohio has permanently shut down one of its Dayton-area restaurants effective today, Saturday, June 9.
“Thank you for sharing your community with us,” reads a coupon offering $10 off at two other Dayton-area Applebee’s, offered to customers of the restaurant at 6242 Wilmington Pike in Sugarcreek Twp. “We have closed this location and look forward to seeing you at our other area Applebee’s.”
The coupon was being handed out to prospective diners who came to the Wilmington Pike location this afternoon.

The general manager of the restaurant referred all questions to a spokeswoman for RMH Franchise, the restaurant-franchise company based in Lincoln, Neb. that operates Dayton-area Applebee’s restaurants. Phone and email messages left with the RMH Franchise spokeswoman were not immediately returned.

RMH Franchise purchased what was then 88 Ohio Applebee’s in the fall of 2013 as part of a multi-state sale by a Kentucky-based franchisee. In December 2013, the Applebee’s at 1450 W. Dorothy Lane shut down permanently. After sitting vacant for a few years, that space now houses an El Rancho Grande Mexican restaurant.
