The design of the Applebee’s at Maple and Ridge has been so popular — some people even drive past an Applebee’s elsewhere to get to that one — owner Jim Stevens has decided to remodel his other 24 restaurants.

“They will be pretty much remodeled to look quite a bit like that one,” Stevens says.

That Applebee’s opened in late 2009.

Remodeling at the other restaurants, which will take three years to complete, will cost about $200,000 per restaurant.
