Many poked fun at IHOP's surprising move, with fast food chain Wendy's also taking a jab at the said restaurant via Twitter when a user asked about "selling burgers on its block". This change certainly didn't go well with Twitterati. It's adding several burgers to its menu.
"We are definitely going to be IHOP", IHOP president Darren Rebelez tellsCNNMoney's Paul R. La Monica.
"IHOP changing their name to International House of Burgers is like your Grandma saying from now on she's your Aunt" is one tweet cited by Chris Crowley for Grub Street.

But the trick comes with making the idea stick long after IHOb campaign ends.
Changing the name on more than 1,800 locations could be profit buster, so it appears IHOP knows something Wall Street doesn't know about marketing and brand recognition, according to a Business Insider article.
