Since 1958, IHOP® has been the place where people connect over breakfast, enjoy study breaks, grab a bite before or after sporting events, and so much more. And no matter what menu items they order, there’s one ingredient that’s always constant — a smile. We’ve seen millions of smiles over the years in our restaurants, and now shared in photos across our social properties. In fact, smiles are so much a part of our culture that we changed our logo to include one.
This is just one of the many fun and exciting changes you can expect from IHOP®. Because we know the shortest distance between two people is a smile.
GET A FREE SHORT STACK OF PANCAKES ON IHOP® NATIONAL PANCAKE DAY®
On Tuesday, March 7, the Breakfast Brand Teams Up with Notable Children’s Charities to Make More Moments for Kids and Families Along with a Goal of Raising $3.5 Million for Thousands of Local Hospitals
IHOP® Restaurants announced the kick off of its 12th annual National Pancake Day® campaign – and for one day, the humble, delicious pancake will serve a much bigger purpose. As part of its celebration, IHOP has partnered with three inspiring charities – Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Shriners Hospitals for Children – with the goal of raising $3.5 million for finding cures and eradicating life-threatening diseases affecting children and families everywhere.
On Tuesday, March 7, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. with select locations participating until 10:00 p.m. guests can receive a free short stack* of the brand’s world-famous, freshly made buttermilk pancakes at IHOP Restaurants coast to coast. In return, guests are asked to help make a difference by leaving a donation of any size on-check or in-restaurant with all funds going to the charity partners’ local hospital affiliate.
The most anticipated Breakfastarian event of the year, IHOP National Pancake Day is the brand’s signature day of giving and underscores its longstanding commitment to helping families create more moments together. This year, IHOP expects to serve a record-breaking five million pancakes in a single day.
Now through March 7, guests visiting any IHOP restaurant in the U.S. can help reach the ambitious $3.5 million goal by purchasing a “Wall Icon” to publicly pledge support or donate on check. Select IHOP restaurants will be offering a discount coupon that can be used on a future visit with the purchase of a Wall Icon.**
In addition to restaurants throughout the United States, IHOP restaurants in Mexico, Canada and the Philippines will also celebrate National Pancake Day on March 7. For the fourth consecutive year, funds raised in Canada will benefit Children’s Miracle Network. IHOP locations in Mexico will once again raise money for Asociación Mexicana de Ayuda a Niños con Cáncer (AMANC). And, funds raised by IHOP restaurants in the Philippines will benefit The Kythe Foundation.
