Applebee's & PureOFlow San Diego Offer up Purified Water

Applebee's & PureOFlow San Diego Offer up Purified Water

Improved taste in beverages gives Applebee's Las Vegas a leg up over competition

San Diego, CA (Vocus) September 18, 2009

Today PureOFlow of San Diego, a company specializing in commercial and residential water treatment systems, announces that Applebee's Nevada Inc., part of Apple American Group LLC, is now serving its guests beverages made with healthy purified water.

Apple American Group LLC, is the largest Applebee's independent franchise with 190 locations in nine states including California and Nevada and strives to be the premier franchise group in the Applebee's system.

According to John Yanchewski, president of the PureOFlow dealership in San Diego, "Water quality is pretty bad in several areas where Applebee's is located, so I saw an opportunity to help them make their water better. I recommended a PureOFlow reverse osmosis system because it is their best option."

Applebee's represents the largest casual-dining chain with almost 2,000 Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar locations across the US and overseas.

Bill Parobek, Director of Purchasing for Apple American says, "Our focus over the years has been on giving our customers the best dining experience. We are now able to take it to another level by giving them the best tasting beverages made with the healthiest water in town."

The pilot program of a PureOFlow installation at the Applebee's at location has already seen a vast improvement according to the comments from regular diners and the staff who don't have as much maintenance clean up. Prior to the PureOFlow installation, the aggressiveness of the water was causing frequent maintenance issues with the IceMaker Parobek adds, "It was remarkable to see the scale and other elements in the water just get flushed out within minutes of the PureOFlow installation, resulting in crystal clear ice after that."

Applebee's has had a consistent commitment to meeting the needs of each dining guest and has been leading the efforts to provide healthy menu options. By offering beverages made with water that is purified without salts or additives, Applebee's beverages are a great option for those on sodium-restricted diets. The best part is that fountain beverages now taste just like they would from a soda can or soda bottle because the PureOFlow system will provide water to meet a major soda manufacturer's specifications.

In hindsight, this installation seems prescient as the California Assembly passed AB1366 banning the use of water softeners to prevent the expenses incurred to prevent salt pollution from millions of chloride ions dumped into the environment each year.
