My Town: IHOP celebrates birthday with $0.56 dining deal | Restaurants
KENTWOOD, Mich.—The International House of Pancakes is celebrating its birthday by serving up a deal to diners.
On July 8, participating restaurants will celebrate IHOP’s 56th anniversary by offering up a short stack of buttermilk pancakes for $0.56. That’s four cents less than the price of a short stack when the restaurant was founded.
In 1958, Al and Jerry Lapin opened their first IHOP in Toluca Lake, California. That year, only three major television stations were on the air, a gallon of regular gas cost $0.24 and the hula hoop had just been invented.
IHOP now operates 1,627 restaurants in every state, as well as nine countries and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
The short stack deal will be available at participating restaurants from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 8. IHOP has restaurants at the following locations:
- 3796 Alpine Ave. NW, Comstock Park
- 2071 E. Beltline Ave. NE, Grand Rapids Township
- 4767 Wilson Ave. SW, Grandville
- 5039 28th Street SE, Kentwood
- 3110 Beeline Road, Holland
