IHOP’s across country offering up a free short stack
By Bryan Ramos
pparently this is a thing. It’s almost as if everything ever invented has its own national day now, but anytime we’re celebrating breakfast, count me in.
Today is IHOP’s 13th National Pancake Day and they are celebrating by offering a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes to people who stop in for the dine-in only offer from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the offer running til 10 p.m. at select locations.
Those who attend are encouraged to donate money, as IHOP has set a goal to raise $5 million which will go to children’s hospitals and medical research as part of IHOP’s 60 Days of Giving campaign, which runs through March 31.
“At IHOP, we think doing good is delicious,” IHOP president Darren Rebelez said in a statement. “Every stack of pancakes we serve on our signature day counts toward helping our charity partners improve the health and lives of millions of children and families across the country.”
According to the statement, the company has raised close to $30 million for youth health, wellness and educational organizations since the first National Pancake Day in 2006.
“For 60 years, IHOP and our franchisees have made it our mission to support the communities we serve,” Rebelez said in the release. “IHOP National Pancake Day is our declaration to pancake lovers everywhere that we are committed to giving back in meaningful ways.”
I’ll be celebrating National Pancake Day by spending the rest of my day watching football highlights of offensive lineman pancaking defenders.
