Default IHOP changes name to IHOB

http://www.foxla.com/home/the-intern...er-name-change

International House of Pancakes has changed its name to International House of Burgers.

Trolls come out in droves to make fun of the chain's decision.

Other companies like MoonPie and Pop-Tarts threw some not-so-subtle shade at IHOb.

“Dear internet thanks to everyone asking me this but no not every brand is having an identity crisis so I'm gonna stick to Pop-Tarts,” their tweet said.

“We've worked really hard for like 100 years to get people to remember our brand name,” MoonPie said. “So if it's cool with everyone we're just going to stick with MoonPie thank you.”

But perhaps the most savage tweet of all came from Wendy herself.





I haven't eaten at IHOP in years, but WTH were they thinking? LOL!

Isn't it just a temporary change just to let people know that they are now selling burgers too?

Judging by the reactions on the interwebs, their marketing stunt worked.

Dunno. They've sold burgers for years though. I still won't eat there.

The one near me is garbage. IHOP used to be one of THE places to go for a cheap, great meal around here. Now the only resemblance to that is the name only. I wouldn't shed a single tear were they to go under.

Personally I really like their breakfast, but their lunch/dinner was nothing special. I had their burgers before as well, and yeah, I wouldn't go to IHOP for their burgers at all, so many other places that do the burgers much better including Wendy's.

Same thing here, burgers were pretty decent better than fast food stuff. Breakfast stuff was great. Not sure what happened between being good and going to hell, it seems like it was only a few months. Went with fiancé one day, service was slower than crap but the food was okay, then with my mom and kiddo for some reason or other and again food was decent but took forever to get out.

I haven't been to the one closer to my fiancé's place, but a bit scared to go. The Applebees that's across the street underwent a change too, her and I went there shortly after we started dating, place was dead, service was okay, and the servers were seriously on edge. Whatever happened was good though cause that location got bumped back to being popular and speedy.

The same parent company owns Applebees. They are trying to turn around the image that both brands have - suckage. Applebees needs a new name though. Orangeflies? Bananaspiders? Watermeloncarpenterants?
