Wait, *this* is the one from today that's going green?

Unless I already knew that.

If you're citing Wikipedia you're zero for two.

"The appellation "International" has always referred to the fact that the chain offers different styles of pancake from around the world, although it had no actual international presence beyond its 1,500 locations across the Americas until August 2012, when it opened its first franchise in Dubai as part of a major expansion into the Middle East restaurant market. "

1) "International" in the name did not mean "Multinational."

2) Canada and Mexico have had IHOPs for decades. Wikipedia is just plain wrong on that point.
 
2013-06-20 01:56:11 PM
They expanded to Mexico by 2007, Canada by 2008, and then Guatemala a couple of years ago.

Sybarite: Canada by 2008


I live in Canada, and we've had an IHOP here where I live for a lot longer than just 2008.
 
2013-06-20 02:09:11 PM
They probably don't serve delicious bacon there, so I don't care.
 
2013-06-20 02:22:50 PM
Wait.  So even the PANcake is a lie??

:-/
 
2013-06-20 02:25:21 PM
We got one here last year. Nice green, admins.
 
2013-06-20 02:25:28 PM
Huh. I always thought the word "international" was simply a shout-out to the worldy, well-cultured, ultra-sophisticated  savoir faire that has always been the hallmark of IHOP.

Oh shiat, right you are. Looks like they expanded to BC in the 60s. I was confused by the first one opening in Ontario.

pffft, Canada doesn't count as another country.  It's just a more polite version of America.

I wish they sold the Carousel of Syrups.   That's a lot of joy for one Lazy Susan to hold.

IHOP was actually established by the UN in order to spy on Real 'Muricans and take their gunz.
 
2013-06-20 03:05:26 PM
But they've had a pretty international staff in the kitchen for years, so...
 
2013-06-20 03:18:29 PM
The Pancakes are a lie!

Canada and Mexico?  Then shouldn't it be the Continental House Of Pancakes?
 
2013-06-20 03:50:32 PM
I'm gonna bet it's gonna cost twice as much to get the same amount of pancakes as in the US and there'll be no pork sausage or bacon.

Enjoy.
 
2013-06-20 03:51:46 PM
I always thought "International" was referring to their menu, not their locations.

/mmmm, Swedish crepes with lingonberry jam and butter

What an International House looks like.

Nope, I went to an IHOP in Niagara Falls, Ontario in 2000 so it's been longer than that.

It was the Intercontinental Champion of Pancakes til Macho Man took that title away in Wrestlemania 3.

TIL Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat owns IHOP.
 
2013-06-20 03:56:33 PM
IHOP is "international" because it has food based on food from other countries not because it's in other countries.
 
2013-06-20 03:57:49 PM
I would have went with "EVERYBODY PANCAKE!!!"

Hell yes, they do. Any self-respecting restaurant that serves breakfast should serve bacon, with the possible exception of this new one in the Middle East.

should be IROP(Restaurant).

Well silly, that's because "the Americas" includes Canada and Mexico, which are part of the United States.
