Of course the problem with your question is that if we know, we can't tell you because we would be violating our Independent Contractor Agreements. But I believe of the three only Applebees is currently being shopped.
mmm i would be interested in this information as well... because red lobster is a part of the same company that owns olive garden as well... not too big on the red lobster... but very interested in olive garden...
The MSC that controls the Longhorn Steakhouse has said that there are no more shops being done this year. Maybe after the 1st of the yearand this MSC doesn't list Red Lobster,Applebees, Ruby Tuesdays or any of the others listed. I can't and won't say the msc or who else they shop for.
Longhorn/Fridays is shopped by one company, the rotation is every 6 months. Applebee's is shopped by another MSC but only certain ones, not all of them. I think another MSC shops the others. Never seen a MSC so far for Olive garden or REd lobster...Just keep looking, sometimes you find them when you are not looking. Try Volition, Jobslinger or MSPA job boards
I have done Fridays,(4 month rotation), no alcohol, strickly dining...however, they've put it to rest for the rest of the year. Applebee's is no longer shopped here, but I just got an invite to do Elephant Bar (in my town), it is a bar audit and I love their appetizers, love making a meal of them. Have not seen OG shopped.
The numerous Applebees locations in NYC and the adjoining areas north are owned by one franchisee, AppleMetro, they are not shopped. MSC sales reps take note!!!
The owner is always written up in the local business newspapers.
I used to see NJ Applebees shopped and listed under the name Doherty for reasons unknown. Is that the franchise owner's company name perhaps??? Not sure if they are still shopped or not...
I'd like to get into dining shops, however they always require someone to go with you, and I can never find anyone. I wish more dining shops gave you the option of doing them solo (given that you sit at the bar to eat the meal).
They are not being done for the rest of the year...got an email from MSC as I did Fridays regulary (4 month rotation). Haven't been done since Feb. That was one of the best companies to work for. I did lunch and dinner, no age compliance.
