Point-of-sale terminals at several Applebee restaurants recently suffered a data breach involving customers' payment card details, an Applebee franchisee has confirmed.

The data breach at Applebee's point-of-sale terminals is believed to have taken place between 6th December and 2nd January and may have compromised customers' names and credit card details.

RMH Franchise Holdings, which operates over 150 Applebee restaurants at various locations, announced the data breach to customers, stating that the breach may have compromised 'certain guests’ names, credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates and card verification codes processed during limited time periods'. The breach took place only at point-of-sale terminals and online payments were not impacted.
