Erie restaurant week continues Monday, and it's a chance for people to enjoy special meals and deals at 30 participating locations.

The locally-owned Applebee's locations are on the list, which are owned by Scott Enterprises.

We caught up with Nick Scott Jr. today at the Peach Street location, not far from I-90. The Scott's are vested in the tourism industry, with restaurants being some of their businesses in the region.

"I think its a place where people come together with family and friends and enjoy some good times and the restaurants in the market are incredible, but I think even more important this showcases is the amazing people that work in our industry," said Scott.

Applebee's is featuring a special 2 for $24, including one appetizer and two entrees for Erie Restaurant Week.
