We finally know what it all means and I actually sort of freaked out when I heard what the "B" stood for...
In case you hadn't heard, IHOP has switched it's name from INTERNATIONAL HOUSE OF PANCAKES to IHOB, International House of BURGERS.
My first reaction: WHYYYYYY?! I have enough burger joints in my life, I just want the darn pancakes!!!
The restaurant has rolled out SEVEN new "ultimate steakburgers". Creations completely unique to IHOB and according to the company, "The IHOP Culinary team took the creation of these Steakburgers as seriously as we take innovation around our pancakes, which means they’re soon to become world famous, too". Yes that's cool, but what about the PANCAKES?!
Well, we are in luck! While we don't know how long "IHOB" will be offering these "steakburgers" we do not have to worry...the company is not Actually changing it's name....this was just another promotional stunt meant to make us panic.
Thanks IHOP, I think I need some pancakes to wash away this panic.
