IHOP Open Christmas to Sweeten the Day

American Icon Is a Tradition for Many Families

GLENDALE, CA, Dec 22, 2010 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) -- IHOP, one of America's favorite restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner, will be open Christmas Day*. While everyone has their unique traditions for celebrating the holidays, sharing a meal at IHOP on Christmas Day has become increasingly popular with guests.

"Christmas Day is a special day for families celebrating together, and we welcome them to be merry with us," said Jean Birch, IHOP president. "In recent years, IHOP has been one of the most Googled terms on Christmas Day(1), most likely from the family chef who may need a break! However you celebrate the holiday season, your IHOP family hopes to serve you."

Because IHOP locations are primarily owned and operated by franchisees, the decision to open is made restaurant by restaurant. The vast majority of locations will be open; however, hours may be reduced so that team members can enjoy celebrations with friends and family. To make sure the IHOP near you is open Christmas Day and to check hours, visit www.ihop.com.

For a last minute shopping idea, all $25 gift cards purchased in-restaurant through January 2nd will receive a $5 coupon for a future visit, valid at participating locations.
