    It’s only a temporary marketing scheme.

    This whole thing reminds me of when Kylie Cosmetics changed to Kris Cosmetics across all their platforms because of the Kris Jenner collection they were releasing :lachen::rolleyes:

    I went to IHOP this morning before work and asked the cashier how’s the name change going. She laughed and responded a lot of people hate it. I asked if she thinks they will change it back and she said she believes this is a temporary summer campaign to promote their burgers. This is great news if true. The restaurant sign, my receipt, to-go bag all say IHOP. The only IHOB I saw was one small plastic sign in the window.

    That's good. It really doesn't make sense for a popular pancake house that's been around for many years to change their name to "house of burgers."

    This was genius marketing. I haven't seen or thought about IHOP in years until this.

    IHOP's IHOB is now officially dead and the internet is being hilarious about it

    IHOP changed its name to IHOB (International House of Burgers) and the internet lost its collective mind. Then on Monday, the chain made another big announcement about its name that made a lot of people mad — and made others really happy.

    Let's just say there are a lot of emotions about internationally-themed restaurants now.

    In a tweet, IHOP admitted its IHOB switcheroo was one big marketing ploy: "That's right, IHOP! We'd never turn our back on pancakes (except for that time we faked it to promote our new burgers)."

    Just saw the commercial on tv saying it was a stunt to promote their burgers and they are back to IHOP. Somebody must have gotten fired for this terrible marketing ploy. :lachen:
