The Rose Group’s award.

The Pennsylvania Restaurant & Lodging Association honored The Rose Group as one of four Pennsylvania state winners of the 2017 Restaurant Neighbor Award during the UnitedHealthcare Awards Gala. The Rose Group is now in the running for the national award that rewards community service.

The Rose Group owns and operates 56 Applebee’s Neighborhood Grill & Bar locations and nine Corner Bakery Cafes. In the area, its Applebees include: West Chester, Thorndale, Kennett Square, Lionville, Royersford, Aston, Audubon, East Norriton, Havertown, Lansdale, Montgomeryville, Pottstown, Quakertown and Ridley. It also manages Corner Bakery Cafes in Abington, Horsham and King of Prussia.

The Restaurant Neighbor Award was created by the National Restaurant Association to recognize restaurants that exemplify the industry’s philanthropic spirit. The 2017 Pennsylvania winners were: The Rose Group, Flinchy’s, Irish Pub and Punxsy Pizza.

“We are proud to recognize these outstanding state winners of the 2017 Restaurant Neighbor Award,” said John Longstreet, PRLA president and CEO. “Pennsylvania’s restaurants serve their communities every day, and our state winners reflect that commitment to community.”

Rose Group said initiatives such as Flapjack Fundraisers and a partnership with Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation (ALSF) allows employees at each location to support their particular communities need in a way that will create a real impact.

The Rose Group initiated the partnership with ALSF in 2005, raising more than $3 million. The partnership has grown to become a nationwide corporate initiative and includes more than 1,000 Applebee’s locations throughout the United States, raising another $3 million for the foundation.
