Last Call: Restaurant Chains Closing Locations by 2020
IHOP has been an American staple for its pancakes, waffles, and all other kinds of breakfast foods since it was first opened in 1958. However, the chain has been on a decline thanks to the increase in more health aware Americans. Even the restaurant’s crack at adding more items to its menu couldn’t save it. In 2018, IHOP briefly changed its name to IHOB, as in the International House of Burgers, because it added 10 burgers to its menu. It did them no favors, and the chain is planning on closing 30-40 stores by the end of this year.
