Crews were out last week at 8472 highway 51 North working on the inside and outside of the building that will become the home of the new Millington Applebee’s. The old facade is the trademark look of Perkins Restaurant and Bakery. The Millington location closed back in June 2011 as part of a nationwide act by the parent company. On that June day, a nationwide Chapter 11 bankruptcy was filed by Perkins & Marie Callender’s Inc. because weak economy and strong competition. A few weeks ago word spread across the community Applebee’s was moving into the vacant building. Electric and construction workers were on site all last week getting the transformation started.
