International House of Pancakes was founded in 1958 by Albers Kallis, Al Lapin, and Jerry Lapin, with the help of William Kaye and Sherwood Rosenberg. The first IHOP restaurant was located on 4301 W. Riverside Drive in Toluca Lake, Los Angeles, California.
Jerry Lapin and his brother Al were ready to open their first IHOP restaurant after perfecting their pancake recipe in their mother’s kitchen. They needed $25,000 to open the original location.
The restaurant chain shortened its name to “IHOP” in 1973 due to marketing reasons and at that time used a carton kangaroo in their commercials.
In the 1980s IHOP’s breakfast menu expanded and included standard lunch and dinner food items that could be found in other similar restaurant chains like Denny’s and Sambo’s. Also, starting with 1983 IHOP went through a restructuring process, closing all the locations which were not profitable and renovating those which remained. Some of the updates included splitting the kitchen into two, adding more seating, and changing the décor. Though, the ovens were not included in the renovation in order to keep the costs low.
IHOP Corp. bought Applebee’s International Inc. for $2.04 billion in 2007. At that time, these two brands together had more than 3,250 restaurants, which made IHOP the largest full-service restaurant company in the world.
IHOP’s menu got a complete makeover in 2013 which helped the company to increase its sales by 3.6% in the following months. The new menu consisted of clearly divided sections and many mouth-watering photos of the meals.
Nowadays there are more than 1,840 IHOP locations in the United States, Canada, United Arab Emirates, Mexico, India, Guatemala, Peru, Pakistan, Ecuador, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Kuwait.
IHOP restaurant was diner-inspired, so the seating in every location is pretty generous. Many tables can seat at least four clients. But there are also more intimate options for small groups of guests.
IHOP focuses mainly on breakfast, serving omelettes, pancakes, French toast, and waffles. However, their menu also includes lunch and dinner items like burgers, salads, and sandwiches.
People described the food served at IHOP as being delicious and warm. In general, they are coming back for the pancakes, but they enjoy some other meals as well.
If you are going for the first time to IHOP and you don’t know what to order, you should try the International Pancake Combo. Some other recommendations include the Buttermilk Biscuit and Gravy and the Southwest Scramble.

How does IHOP create flawless pancakes every time?
