International House of What? IHOP teases name change


Wait… what? After 60 years as IHOP, the International House of Pancakes is about to flip things upside down and get a new name.

In a tweet, the restaurant chain said it would be changing its name to IHOb on June 11.

IHOP hasn’t yet said what the “B” will stand for yet. Followers have guessed “breakfast” (our vote), “brunch,” “bacon” and “biscuits.” The restaurant isn’t telling, though.

One fan said the “B” clearly stands for “breakfast,” but the restaurant warned them not to jump to conclusions.

A poll on IHOP’s Twitter account stands at 41 percent for “bacon,” 29 percent for “biscuits,” 24 percent for “barnacles” and 6 percent for “butternut squash.”

We’ll keep you posted on what they decide.
