Applebee's reassures guests on 'No Tech Tuesday'

Casual-dining operator says it won’t confiscate digital devices despite trying to trademark the term

While Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar has applied to trademark the term “No Tech Tuesday,” the company is reassuring guests it won’t confiscate their digital technology.

“Applebee’s has always and will continue to allow customers to use technology in our restaurants as much or as little as they choose to do so,” spokesman Dan Smith said in an interview Monday.
