On Tuesday, March 7, IHOP guests can receive a free short stack of its world-famous, freshly made buttermilk pancakes at participating locations throughout Canada. In return, guests are asked to help make a difference by leaving a donation of any size, with all funds going to the Children’s Miracle Network hospital in their community.
IHOP National Pancake Day is the brand’s signature day of giving and underscores its longstanding commitment to helping families create more moments together. This year, IHOP expects to serve a record-breaking five million pancakes in a single day.
“Each and every year, we look forward to celebrating with our guests and fans, and are amazed by their generosity. Every pancake served on IHOP National Pancake Day has a purpose, and every penny raised goes a long way in making a meaningful, and lasting, impact on kids and families in local communities.” – Daniel del Olmo, President, International, DineEquity, Inc.
