IHOP Fast-Casual Spin-Off Coming in 2020
IHOP plans to launch its first ever fast-casual concept, Flip'd, in April in Atlanta, with plans to open more locations in other major cities. Flip'd might be half the size of a regular IHOP, but just as good as customers use digital kiosks to order or move through the line cafeteria style and of course to go with current demands, online ordering and delivery will be available. Obviously as an IHOP spin-off there has to be pancakes, customers will be offered a pancake bowl where they can add sweet or savory toppings as well as the classic Ultimate Steakburger and Buttermilk Crispy Chicken menu items.

Some ways to do this are through being environmentally conscious, being a pillar for the community, and being a restaurant you want to work for. The restaurant industry landscape is changing, to keep in touch with diners and offer them something meaningful will change the way people choose to dine.
