'IHOB' Changes Back to 'IHOP,' Offers Pancakes to Customers

IHOP may now be in the burger business, but it hasn't abandoned its pancakes and plans to offer a sweet deal for one day only.

The national diner tweeted on Monday that they will reverse the name change decision and announced a celebratory date for the restaurant.

It's to celebrate the restaurant chain's 60th birthday. The brand has already changed its name on its website and all social media platforms.

IHOb should really stand for "International House of betrayal", because less than a month since the big reveal, the former burger house is reverting back to its pancake roots.

IHOb has officially returned to calling itself IHOP - and admitted the change was all part of a publicity stunt.

On Twitter, the company said, "That's right, IHOP!".

"We had to make a bold move to get people to be willing to talk about us for something other than breakfast food", Rebelez said in early June.

After the name change, that number jumped to 30 percent. The internet was outraged at the move, either because of IHOP betraying its initial goal as a pancake emporium or that it was just some kind of elaborate marketing scheme.
