For 54 years, the IHOP family restaurant chain has served world famous pancakes and a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are loved by people of all ages — offering an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service.
International House of Pancakes® began making breakfast memorable in 1958 when it opened its doors in the suburbs of Los Angeles. Fifteen years later, a new marketing campaign introduced the acronym “IHOP”, and since then it’s been the name people know as the place they can enjoy their favorite breakfast experience – any time of day.
Throughout our 54-year history, we’ve celebrated over 1,550 restaurant openings across the country, and around the world. And we’ve introduced iconic favorites – like our Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity® – that people have grown up with, and now enjoy with their own families, making new memories.
As of September 30, 2012, there were 1,565 IHOPs in 50 states and the District of Columbia, as well as in Canada, Guatemala, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Under the licensed name IHOP at HOME® consumers can also enjoy a line of premium breakfast products available at leading retailers.
IHOP restaurants are franchised and operated by Glendale, California-based International House of Pancakes, LLC and its affiliates. International House of Pancakes, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DineEquity, Inc. (NYSE: DIN).
