IHOP To Enter The Asia Pacific Market With The Opening Of First IHOP Restaurant In The Philippines

John Merkin, Vice President of Operations and International, International House of Pancakes, LLC., added, “Finding a partner with the operational capability to be able to implement and maintain the high standards that we, and our guests, demand was paramount in choosing the franchisee who would enable us to bring the brand to the Asia Pacific marketplace. InterDine Corp. and Global Restaurant Concepts Inc. bring the necessary resources and experience as well as a proven record of success in establishing and running respected American restaurant brands in this region. With them as our franchisee, there are more than 100 million people in the Philippines who are about to discover why IHOP is famous the world over for great food and great service.”

The new IHOP will be located in the W Global Center, Fort Bonifacio, Global City, Taguig, on the ground floor of a newly constructed mid-rise building overlooking a park. This high traffic, highly visible area sees more than 5,000 runners a day pass by this building as part of a morning and late afternoon jogging path, making it a prime location. Global City is fast becoming a top lifestyle, retail and dining hub in Metro Manila.

This five-year expansion is expected to create over 1,000 jobs in the region. As part of the agreement, Interdine is opening a hospitality training school at their headquarters to insure that guests receive the excellent level of service they have come to expect from IHOP restaurants.
