[Tagging] Unifying large multi-location store chains

Hi Marc,

Yes, I'm aware of the fact that names may differ for some brands, but
espacially American companies use the brand's name for all their locations.
That's also a reason why I want to review the changed objects manually,
because if the name may differ, like [brand name] [city name], I would not
change it. The main reason to change the names is because there are a lot
of different variants of a name in our database, like "Applebee's",
"applebee's", "Applebees" or "Applebee`s". So I'll mainly fix the spelling
and apostrophe mistakes ( ' ` ).
