IHOP

About IHOP

The IHOP restaurant chain has been serving a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner selections for more than 57 years. IHOP enjoys a rich heritage and almost universal awareness. Our brand has been built upon the strenght of our franchisees, vendors partners and dedicated employees.
IHOP restaurants are franchised and operate by Glendale, California based IHOP Corp. There are over 1,280 IHOP restaurants in the U.S. and Canada.

The total investment necessary to begin operation of an IHOP franchise at a non-traditional venue is as follows:
  • Full-Service Program: $693,266 to $3,374,043
  • IHOP Limited-Service Program: $414,866 to $1,427,418

This includes Initial Fees of $39,000 to $79,480 per Full-Service
Restaurant and $23,500 to $48,480 per IHOP Limited-Service Restaurant to
be developed which must be paid to the Franchisor or an IHOP Affiliate.
