IHOP to offer 60 cent pancakes for one day only

  • IHOP has changed its name back from IHOB

When IHOP first announced they were changing their name to IHOb (International House of Burgers) their patrons, the internet, and their competitors went in on the iconic pancake chain.

The change drew massive backlash on social media with some calling the move an "epic failure".

"We'd never turn our back on pancakes (except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers)", it read in part.

China’s Xiaomi makes underwhelming public debut in Hong Kong IPO
The IPO opened at a price of HK $16.60 (about $2.12 USD) per share which is a fair amount below the original IPO value of HK $17. During the day prices slipped to as low as HK$16 ($2.04) but managed to climb to HK$16.80 ($2.14) by closing time.


When the restaurant chain announced 60 cent short stacks, they also fessed up to faking their IHOb name change.

When asked, "didn't go well, huh?" by one Twitter user, the IHOP account responded, "The blan was to get beople talking about our new burgers".

"We're giving away 60¢ short stacks on July 17 from 7a-7p for IHOP's 60th birthday". At the time, a branding expert told FOX Business that the name change was the "dumbest decision ever made in the world of branding". But if you already checked out the burger, and are a fan of that particular dish, the good news is it seems that menu item is at least sticking around.
