IHOP was originally named "The International House of Pancakes" when it was founded in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California.
IHOP holds the Guinness World Record for the tallest stack of pancakes, measuring 76.2 cm (29.98 inches) high.
IHOP celebrates "National Pancake Day" annually, offering free stacks of pancakes to guests and raising funds for charity.
In 2018, IHOP announced a temporary rebranding as "IHOb" with the "b" standing for burgers, which turned out to be a marketing campaign to promote their burger offerings.
IHOP introduces seasonal and limited-time pancake flavors, including unique options like Cinnamon Roll, Cupcake, and Oreo Oh My!
IHOP offers a wide range of syrup flavors beyond the traditional maple, including blueberry, strawberry, butter pecan, and old-fashioned.
IHOP has featured skilled pancake artists who create intricate and detailed pancake designs, sometimes resembling famous faces or popular characters.
IHOP provides a variety of toppings to accompany their pancakes, including whipped cream, fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, and even ice cream.
IHOP has expanded globally and operates restaurants in several countries, including Canada, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, and the Philippines.
IHOP participates in the Shrove Tuesday tradition, also known as Pancake Day, which marks the day before the Christian season of Lent begins.
