Hamilton Blvd. Applebee's to Close

The Applebee's on Hamilton Boulevard is closing.

The popular restaurant will closed at 10 P.M. Sunday January 19th.

Applebee's has leased that site since the 1990's, but the property is now being bought by Qdoba Mexican Grill, which hopes to open by the fall.

Applebee's is transferring 65 full-time employees to its Southern Square location.

As many part-timers as possible could also make the move.

A spokesperson for Applebee's, Jolene Loetscher, says the company has been looking for another location in Sioux City for a while, but hasn't been able to find a suitable spot yet.
