IHOP National Pancake Day

What’s better than free pancakes? How about free pancakes and supporting Shriners Hospitals for Children? On Tuesday, February 27, 2018; 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. (with some locations participating until 10 p.m.), many International House of Pancakes (IHOP®) restaurants will celebrate National Pancake Day® by offering customers a free short stack of pancakes*. With every stack served, diners will be encouraged to make a donation to designated charities, including Shriners Hospitals for Children.

IHOP restaurants began the National Pancake Day tradition in 2006. Every year, the restaurant chain serves more than 4 million free flapjacks on this day and has raised $3 million for charity.

Save the date to dine-in at IHOP and enjoy a stack of buttermilk pancakes knowing that you are making an impact on the lives of thousands of children.
