New York City– IHOP, which teased a name modification to IHOb earlier this month, says the “b” is to promote its hamburger menu.
The pancake chain has actually been coy about whether the name turn is long-term, stating Monday that it was “for the time being.” Pushed for details, the company would not provide an end date for IHOb however described the “tongue-in-cheek name change” and stated it was tied to the summertime hamburger promo.
The business understood for breakfast already had burgers on the menu, but is adding a line made of Black Angus hamburger. It started using the IHOb name on social media, on its site and for in-store promos.
The tips of a name modification had spurred guesses on social media– and some dissatisfaction Monday at the reveal.
