On March 7, all IHOP® restaurants in the Philippines will once again join locations throughout the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Guam and Mexico in celebrating a unique and beloved IHOP restaurant tradition: National Pancake Day.
From 7AM to 10PM on Tuesday, March 7th, all 5 IHOP locations will be offering guests the opportunity to enjoy unlimited servings of their world famous buttermilk pancakes for only Php 250, to enjoy in the restaurant. Php 200 out of the Php 250 generated from those pancakes will once again be donated to the Kythe Foundation, which provides children with cancer and chronic illnesses the chance to learn, play, and grow while in treatment, even if they’re in the hospital.
National Pancake Day began in the United States in 2006 and in the past decade has raised $20 million dollars for children’s health charities in the local communities. Last year, IHOP Philippines joined the celebration, raising nearly Php 400,000 for the local Kythe Foundation charity.
“When, we launched the National Pancake Day promotion 11 years ago, we had no idea that it would become so successful and so warmly embraced by our franchise partners, our team members and our guests” said Daniel del Olmo, President, of International, DineEquity Inc, the parent company of IHOP restaurants. “It is especially gratifying to see it become a tradition in the Philippines, knowing that our guests are enjoying our pancakes while raising money that will make a positive impact in the lives of children throughout the country.” We’re grateful to Global Restaurants for embracing this wonderful IHOP tradition”.
“Last year, IHOP Philippines, with the public’s generous and kind hearted support, was able to raise nearly Php 400,000 for the Kythe Foundation Charity through our National Pancake Day initiative. This year, we are once again elated to take part in IHOP’s arguably most popular and clearly most impactful tradition,” said Archie Rodriguez, CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts Inc., IHOP restaurant franchisee in the Philippines. “With every single IHOP restaurant in the Philippines participating in our 3rd National Pancake Day, we are hoping to raise a total of Php 500,000 this year for the Kythe Foundation to aid, in our own small way, in improving the quality of life and alleviating the condition of our children battling pediatric cancer.”
IHOP Philippines branches are in Bonifacio Global City, UP Town Center, Century City Mall, SM Mall of Asia and Araneta Center.
