Our Story

We believe that success is only possible with great teamwork!

When we formed American Franchise Capital in late 2012, we brought together a group of the nation’s top restaurant professionals that shared our relentless passion for performance and that wanted to work together to create a dynamic company with a culture of success, positive reinforcement, growth, and opportunity for all. As we grow, we will never forget that our success is a direct result of the hard work and passion by every team member to be the “best in class” in all aspects of our business. Our world class team and culture, paired with our partnership with Quilvest USA Private Equity, makes our companies well positioned to grow more dynamically than ever before. It is truly a great time to be part of AFC and its Taco Bell & Applebee’s brands.

American Franchise Capital “AFC” currently owns and manages 67 Taco Bell restaurants and 50 Applebee’s restaurants in 9 states east of the Mississippi. A total of 117 locations brings our annual sales over $200 million.

Our Brands

What started as a local neighborhood grill and bar has now grown into the largest casual dining chain in the world with almost 2,000 locations. But what sets Applebee’s apart from the competition is that our restaurants are truly a reflection of the community. We take pride in our ability to provide everyday value and fun for all ages in a local, neighborhood atmosphere. Applebee’s continues to be the place where people gather to celebrate, reunite, and enjoy time together over a great meal with stellar service. Our promise is that we will continue to provide our customers, employees and friends an environment where all ages and lifestyles can be brought together, one meal at a time.
