Here's The Real Reason IHOP Changed Its Name

Last week, we reported IHOP was changing its name by dropping the p and adding a b.

Immediately following the announcement, the internet demanded answers.

Naturally, IHOP didn't miss an opportunity to have some fun with the name change, as they launched a poll for people to vote on what they thought the b stood for.

In a post on Facebook, the company revealed today that the b stands for burgers.

Rest assure, the pancakes will remain on the menu, but the company's focus will be burgers. According to a statement made to Fox News, "America loves burgers."
