International House of Pancakes

The International House of Pancakes is a chain of restaurants with over 1650 stores. The first restaurant was opened at 4301 Riverside Drive in the Toluca Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles in 1958.

The company began franchising in 1960 and went public under the name International House of Pancakes in 1961. In 1973, the company officially began marketing itself with the bouncy initials IHOP and continued its gradual expansion. In 2001, IHOP opened its 1000th restaurant in Layton, Utah. In November 2007, IHOP purchased the Applebees chain of restaurants. The IHOP corporate site indicates that 99% of the restaurant chain are franchised owned and that they hope to transition Applebees with the same locally owned structure.
