IHOP® Restaurants Launches New Online Ordering Platform Nationally As Part Of Growing IHOP 'N GO® Takeout Experience
The enhanced to-go program affords guests the convenience of enjoying their favorite IHOP menu items on the go, particularly when there isn't the time or a desire to sit down in the restaurant, but without having to sacrifice great quality. Fueled by guest feedback and demand, IHOP spent close to a year perfecting its program before rolling it out in stages, working to ensure that the IHOP 'N GO® experience matched the in-restaurant hospitality the brand is known for.
"More and more guests are telling us they want to enjoy the distinctive, freshly-prepared menu items they love at IHOP, but outside of our restaurants and without having to give up the quality they expect from us," said
Earlier this year, IHOP introduced innovative, patented packaging at select locations; designed to maintain superior food taste and quality, the new packaging is now available nationwide for all IHOP 'N GO® orders. From fluffy pancakes to crispy hash browns and French fries to freshly scrambled eggs and juicy burgers, the containers keep cooked-to-order meals hot, fresh and intact until eaten. Stand-out features of the IHOP 'N GO® packaging include:
- Food-Centric Containers: Modular design for maximum food plating, including an interlocking component designed around the brand's world-famous buttermilk pancakes.
- Quality Pancakes On the Go: Side ventilation traps in heat, but not moisture, allowing pancakes to maintain their fluffy texture.
- Breakfast Staples Kept Warmer, Longer: Patent-pending, nested packaging compartments to ensure food stays warmer for a longer period of time.
- Easy Transport: A box shape and lid design that fits perfectly into an IHOP to-go bag to minimize sliding while food is in transit.
- Combo Meals Made Easy: Sections snap together to hold different items in combo meals securely.
Online ordering is now available through most IHOP restaurants across the U.S. with additional locations being added. Delivery testing with
To ensure an exceptional carryout experience, the brand also created a Meals to Go Specialist Certification program, which trains and certifies restaurant staff members to be experts on every touchpoint of IHOP 'N GO®, from plating to packaging to guest service. Each IHOP restaurant will have at least one team member certified in the program and ready to ensure that every IHOP 'N GO® order meets the same high-quality standard that guests have come to expect from eating at IHOP.
IHOP 'N GO®, including the new packaging, is now available at close to 1,700+ U.S. based IHOP restaurants and online ordering for participating restaurants can be accessed via IHOP.com.
