Applebee's Costa Rica

Costa Rica clearly likes it’s Applebee’s. The U.S. restaurant chains is responding with the addition of three new locations in the Costa Rica neighborhood.

One of the locations in east San Jose, in Sabanilla is scheduled to open in October of this year and will begin construction this week. The U.S. chain will be approximately 75 jobs to the area and the financial investment will be over a million dollars. The restaurant will be located next to the La Bandera rotunda, which is home to a multi-million dollar complex housing restaurants and bars.

Costa Rica’s first Applebee’s  http://www.applebees.com/ is located in Santa Ana, just southwest of San Jose  and can be found on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/ApplebeesCR The American restaurateur has conducted market research and is strategically opening locations where they feel they will have the most return on investment as well as exposure to a good client base. Plans for the third and fourth locations are also in the works with the Heredia area being targeted as a location, specifically near the Real Cariari shopping center and one in Alajuela. These two locations are expected to be complete in 2013 and 2014 respectively.  - brought to you by CostaRicaCLOSEUP.com
