IHOP Background

The first International House of Pancakes opened up on July 7, 1958 in Toluca Lake, California by Al and Jerry Lapin. The company then began expanding through franchising in 1960. It wasn't until 1973 that the acronym IHOP came to be.

By 1979, all restaurants had IHOP signs. IHOP's famous Rooty Tooty Fresh 'n Fruity showed up on the menu in 1985. Cliff Blemis was the restaurant's spokesperson and created many commercials for over a decade. By 1992, 500 IHOP restaurants had opened, and by 2001, there were a thousand. As of December 31, 2010, there were 1,504 IHOP restaurants in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

About IHOP's Approach

The company's slogan "Come hungry. Leave Happy" appeared in 2003. IHOP and Applebee's merged in 2007, giving IHOP 3,300 more restaurants to be in charge of. The company's headquarters is located in Glendale, California and has been going strong for over 50 years.

IHOP's visions states, "DineEquity unites great franchises, brands and team members to create the world's leading restaurant company, one guest appearance at a time." Their values include:

  • Integrity: We do the right thing. We are committed to the highest ethical standards.
  • Excellence: We expect the best from ourselves and each other.
  • Innovation: We find creative, new ways to delight our customers.
  • Accountability: We do what we say we will do. We are responsible for our actions.
  • Inclusion: We respect and value the diversity of others. We benefit from many points of view.
  • Trust: We collaborate and build trust through open, honest communication.
  • Community: We make a difference in the neighborhoods and communities we serve.

Hours and Menus

Since all IHOP restaurants are owned by franchises, open and closing hours vary, but most restaurants are opened from seven in the morning until ten at night, except on Fridays and Saturdays when the minimum closing time is midnight. Many restaurants stay open until later hours. IHOP is best known for serving breakfast foods at all hours of the day.

IHOP Coupons

For a restaurant that has only been opened for 53 years, IHOP is doing pretty well for itself. Their reputation is clean and they have very high standards. They cater to people of all ages and are open very late for customers. Breakfast is their specialty, but they still manage to provide lunch, dinner, dessert and other food items. IHOP also provides coupons and exclusive offers to customers.

They not only do well for themselves, but they also help out in the community as well. They support many non-profit and charitable organizations and have very high animal standards. For the past five years, IHOP has also been raising money in support of the communities were their businesses are located. They have raised over five million dollars through their National Pancake Day Celebration.
