IHOP celebrates 65 years with menu savings and a side of Kevin Bacon

From that short stack toRooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity Combo, the iconic menu items bring guests back time and again to enjoy a tasty IHOP meal. As part of its 65 years celebration, the popular fast casual chain is offering big menu savings. And, with the help of Kevin Bacon, there could be even more connections to those favorite meals.

Few restaurant brands reach 65 years in business. The occasion deserves to be celebrated in a big way. In this case, it is more than just a short stack with some candles. The event includes food savings almost all month long.

According to Kieran Donahue, Chief Marketing Officer, IHOP, “We are on a mission to serve more joy to our guests every day, and what better way to do that than by celebrating IHOP being a leader in breakfast for 65 years with our iconic pancakes at the center of it all. This anniversary moment deserves a special guest, and we are thrilled to have Kevin Bacon join us as we deliver a dining experience filled with IHOP classic favorites and innovative new flavors all wrapped up in limited time value deals. Our 65th anniversary is a gift for everyone!”

What’s on the menu for the IHOP 65th anniversary?

Many of the favorite dishes are highlighted for the 65th anniversary. Now through August 27, deals include:

  • AYCE Pancakes: $5 All You Can Eat Pancakes
  • Kids Eat Free: 4-10pm every day, with adult entrée purchase
  • Delivery: $0.65 on IHOP channels only
  • Loyalty: Join the International Bank of Pancakes and get a Free Pancake Combo after your first purchase

While these special items are available in restaurants, the popular brand has had a big year. From launching a retail coffee to cereal flavors, the connection that people have that favorite food runs deep. Even if there is nothing better than enjoying a warm, short stack in restaurants, the love of IHOP does not fade once the plate is empty.

Why is IHOP partnering with Kevin Bacon?

Although some people still marvel at the idea of seven degrees of Kevin Bacon, the favorite actor and entertainer is more than a pop culture moment. Like the restaurant brand, Bacon is celebrating his 65th year.

Via social media, the partnership will share some celebratory moments. From the love of pancakes to maybe an ode to syrup, the moments will entice many people to go enjoy a meal. Maybe the Bacon brothers could even do an original song for the special occasion.

And, for anyone else who is 65 years young, join the conversation, too. Or, for anyone who enjoys IHOP morning, noon or night, share that experience with the brand via their socials by tagging #Pancakes4Kevin.
