GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) – TEAM Schostak Family Restaurants (TSFR), a Livonia, Michigan based family-owned restaurant group with an expansive portfolio of casual, quick service and family dining restaurants throughout the state, and its 65 Applebee’s restaurants have launched a statewide campaign to recognize Michigan’s dedicated military members.
