There are only a few names in the restaurant industry that can claim a 50 year heritage, and the status of American Icon.  IHOP is one of those few because we have always focused on providing guests with delicious food, warm, genuine service and clean surroundings at a great value.  Our brand has been built upon the strength of our franchisees, vendor partners and dedicated IHOP employees.

Today, with nearly universal awareness, IHOP is reenergized and is the talk of the family restaurant category.  If you are an experienced restaurateur with the financial ability* to develop and the desire to grow with an American Icon, please click the "Request More Information" button on this page.
