For those who haven’t yet visited a Denny’s, it is a diner-style chain that operates in over 1,600 restaurants in the US, Canada, Mexico, and Japan, among other places. Denny’s was first opened as Danny’s Donuts in Lakewood, California, in 1953. In 1956, the store was renamed Danny’s Coffee Shops and changed to operate around the clock. Then, in 1961, it officially became Denny’s.
Within two decades, there were over 1,000 Denny’s restaurants in all 50 states.
According to our research, IHOP isn’t offering any special Valentine’s Day freebies. However, they recently stated that March 12 will be the annual IHOP Free Pancake Day, where everyone can eat a short stack for free.
The March event is called Flip it Forward for Kids, and according to Food and Wine, it will take place on Tuesday, March 12 from 7 am until at least 7pm at participating locations. The outlet writes, “Each guest will be able to have one free short stack of Original Buttermilk pancakes—but as your parents always told you, nothing in life is free, and in this case, the catch is that you’ll be encouraged to help kids battling illnesses by donating to one of IHOP’s charity partners: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMN Hospitals), The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, and Shriners Hospitals for Children. Honestly, it’s not such a bad catch.”
IHOP was created with a focus on breakfast foods, while also offering a lunch and dinner menu. Today, there are over 1,650 IHOP locations across North America, Latin America, the Middle East, Southeast Asia, and Oceania. Most IHOP restaurants are open 24 hours a day.
IHOP was founded in 1958 by Jerry Lapin, Al Lapin, and Albert Kallis. In the 1980s, it grew to include lunch and dinner items. The chain was renamed IHOP (which stands for International House of Pancakes) in 1973.
