About IHOP RestaurantsView Site

IHOP partners with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals for National Pancake Day each year. Tuesday, March 12th is National Pancake Day with the goal of raising $3million. IHOP has raised over $23 million for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals since joining as a partner in 2006.

During this National Pancake Day, nearly 1,300 IHOP locations across the United States and Canada invite guests to enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes — and, in return, those guests are invited to make a generous donation to their local hospital. All donations made at participating IHOP restaurants support the local children’s hospital.

Beginning February 1 through National Pancake Day on March 12, participating IHOP locations will also sell Miracle Balloons for $1 and $5 each to benefit member Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. All icon proceeds will help provide life-saving care, equipment and therapy programs across North America. Customers who purchase a $5 Miracle Balloon will receive a $5 off discount that can be used during their next dining visit.

For over 60 years, the IHOP family restaurant chain has served its world famous pancakes and a wide variety of beloved breakfast, lunch and dinner items. IHOP offers its guests an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service.
