National Pancake Day at IHOP

Posted on Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 9:20 am

Since beginning its National Pancake Day celebration in 2006, IHOP has raised more than $10 million to support charities in the communities in which it operates.  On. Feb. 5, guests from around the country will celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP and enjoy a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes.

In return for the free pancakes, guests will be asked to consider leaving a donation for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals or other designated local charity.

The Louisa County IHOP is located at 137 Wood Ridge Terrace, next to the Best Western in Zion Crossroads.

WHAT: For the eighth consecutive year, IHOP® restaurants nationwide will offer each guest a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes on National Pancake Day in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Muscular Dystrophy Association and other local charities.            

WHY: For every short stack of buttermilk pancakes served on National Pancake Day, IHOP guests are invited to make a voluntary donation to Muscular Dystrophy Association.

IHOP hopes to raise $3 million this year, with a goal to bring the total amount of funds raised to more than $13 million.  To find a local IHOP or to donate online, visit
