Recently the Autisticana crew went to Port Jefferson Station IHOP for a delicious breakfast-like dinner. We had delicious meals such as pancakes, bacon and eggs, and even burgers. Then we gathered for a group picture with our waiter Autumn, as well as other workers at the restaurant. This will help us get publicity as we continue our quest to take the world by storm!
Before going to IHOP, Christine recorded a video that would blow the corporation away!
IHOP is an American multinational restaurant chain that specializes in American breakfast foods. It also offers lunch and dinner items and is owned by Dine Brands Global, with 99% of its locations run by independent franchisees. IHOP has 1,841 locations across the Americas, Middle East, and South Asian Subcontinent, with many locations open 24/7 but minimum operating hours from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m.
International House of Pancakes (IHOP) was founded in 1958 in the Los Angeles, California area by Jerry Lapin, Al Lapin, and Albert Kallis, with the help of Sherwood Rosenberg and William Kaye. The first restaurant opened in Burbank, California, and the chain currently has 1,841 locations across the Americas, Middle East, and South Asian Subcontinent. Most of the locations are run by independent franchisees. The original IHOP design was a steep-roofed A-frame building with a blue roof, and while most locations no longer use this building type, some still exist around the US. The chain’s name was officially shortened to IHOP for marketing purposes in 1973, and a cartoon kangaroo was used in commercials at the time.
IHOP expanded its breakfast menu to include lunch and dinner items in the 1980s. It rebranded from International Industries to IHOP in 1976. In December 2019, IHOP announced plans to launch a fast-casual breakfast chain called Flip’d.
IHOP celebrated its 10th annual National Pancake Day in 2015. In mid-2018, a franchisee opened a hybrid Applebee’s/IHOP restaurant in downtown Detroit.
IHOP’s headquarters office is located in Glendale, California. The founders of IHOP are Al Lapin Jr., Albert Kallis, and Jerry Lapin.
