The former Applebee's in Cloquet was sold in December to the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa.

The building at 1405 Highway 33 sold for $600,000, according to the Carlton County Assessor's Office.

“There are no plans for the building at the moment,” Rita Aspinwall, communications director for the Fond du Lac Band said. She added that they are exploring options for the building.

Applebee's operated at the location for 12 years, but closed its doors in March 2018.

The location has a long-served as a restaurant. The original building burned down and subsequent buildings demolished in the same location until the current structure was built.
