Since the first IHOP opened its doors in 1958 in a small suburb of Los Angeles as the International House of Pancakes, we have been the experts in serving guests the very best in breakfast and other meals any time of day. And in the more than half century since we began, we have truly become an International House of Pancakes, with more than 1600 restaurants located in countries all around the world.
We have had the privilege of making guests happy for more than half a century, across several generations. We’ve brought families and friends together for a great meal in a friendly environment and have seen them leave with a smile.
Our new brand positioning: “IHOP: Spreading Happiness Since 1958” captures this unique and distinctive heritage while capturing the fun, friendly atmosphere that will make every one of our guests smile—and happy guests return again and again… which will spread happiness to us all!
