description/mission statement:
A United States-based restaurant chain that specializes in breakfast foods and is owned by DineEquity. While IHOP's focus is on breakfast foods such as pancakes, waffles, French toast, omelettes, and blintzes, it has evolved into also offering a menu of full course meals and a variety of desserts. As of December 31, 2008, the chain had 1396 restaurants in 49 states, Canada and Mexico. With the March 24, 2009 opening of a restaurant at the University Mall in South Burlington, Vermont, IHOP now has restaurants in all 50 states. Currently, there is an IHOP planned to be built in Puerto Rico. 11 are corporate-owned; 157 are operated under area licenses. Jerry Lapin, Al Lapin and Albert Kallis founded The International House of Pancakes in 1958 with the help of Sherwood Rosenberg. The first restaurant opened on July 7, 1958, in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles, California. Since then, locations have been opened all over the United States, in the Canadian province of British Columbia and in the Mexican cities of Monterrey, Tampico and Mexico City. It also announced on October 23, 2006, that it is expanding into the province of Ontario as well. IHOP is headquartered in Glendale, California. The company uses "IHOP" as its primary name, though they still use "International House of Pancakes" as a secondary name. Each table has its own sugar boat and four flavors of syrup dispensers: blueberry, boysenberry, butter pecan, and strawberry. Boysenberry is being phased out in many restaurants, replaced by plain, "old-fashioned" pancake syrup. There is also service of warm artificially maple-flavored corn syrup, brought out with every meal with pancakes/waffles. Recently, a major change was introduced in its core menu in an attempt to become more than just a breakfast restaurant. Recently, Country Griddle Cakes disappeared from the menu, replaced by "Corn Cake Pancakes".The "international" appellation of the chain derives from its three core crepe-style pancakes: "German" (served with powdered sugar and lemon butter with lemon slices), "French" (served with orange marmalade), and "Swedish" (served with lingonberries and lingonberry butter). These fruit-topped crepes are offered with an egg-and-meat plate as the "International Passport Breakfast." Menu offerings such as French toast and Belgian waffles further reinforce the international theme.
