    I took on a Applebee's acount this year. Just wondering if anyone here plows for them in the past. Do they pay on time? Manager told me 30-45 days but how do they really pay?

    I believe more than half on this site would gladly take their pay in food and drink - this given most companies still have not paid their first round of snow.

    I accept visa, works great for the corporate clients who like to pay with plastic. The only way I agree to plastic is I invoice after every storm. I ping there card 24 hours after the faxed invoice.
    Moneys in the account within 48 hours after the invoice :)
    My largest client pays this way and they like it.
    Works for me :drinkup:

    I'm not sure. we have a brand new built right by my house...like within 5 minutes from here, and I am going for the chemical for this and 2 or 3 other locations this spring. Now, I HAVE done work for Bob Evans in the past, and I can tell you...you can't ask for a better corp. to work for as far as the pay goes in comparison to the size.
    I'm sure someone will chime in soon who has done work for them in the past.

    Two of our local Applebee's closed down. I got a gift card for xmas ,drove up there and place was completely emptied out :mad: Never heard anything about them closing down.
  7. If it was me I'd insist on being paid in advance. We had one here by my place for a while and man they had the worst food ever. 30 minutes eating a meal would put me on the toilet for 2 hours.

    Charge them extra... lol

    I do one here in cincy. Their first invoice was submitted around December 10th, and still haven't recieved a check yet. I think last year they didn't finish paying until mid or late April I think. I try to put up with them because I do an Ocharley's across the street, a doctor's office one block down, and a condo 3 minutes away so I will try to put up with them as long as I get my check at some point
