IHOB was faking it - it’s back to pancakes for IHOP

IHOP has changed its name back from IHOB

IHOP has changed its name back from IHOB

The California-based breakfast chain said on its social media platforms that the change back to "IHOP" would coincide with its 60th anniversary.

Just as reactions were mixed to IHOP's original name change, there has also been a variety of comments with this switch back, ranging from appreciation to sass.

To celebrate the return of IHOP and the chain's 60th birthday, IHOP is selling short stacks of pancakes for just 60 cents on July 17.

The company announced a name change in June, which sparked a flood of social media attention, mostly making fun of the stunt. "And it worked. Look at us, two silly pancakes talkin' about burgers".

"We knew we had a very tough job to do to convince people that we take our burgers as seriously as we take our pancakes", said Stephanie Peterson, IHOP's executive director of communications.

IHOP may now be in the burger business, but it hasn't abandoned its pancakes and plans to offer a sweet deal for one day only.

What really matters is that even though IHOP is back to IHOP, it will continue to serve its mediocre burgers regardless of the letter at the end of its name.

NEW YORK IHOP has come clean.
