Applebee’s waitresses Ariel Swartz and Sharell Mccollum fill up glasses with lemonade to give out to fellow employees Tuesday as part of the ‘National Lemonade Toast,’ celebrating the partnership between Applebee’s and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation launched in 2005. The Rose Group, which operates 58 Applebee’s restaurants in Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, has raised more than $260,000 since it began participating in the event in 2005.
