January, all month long IHOP is holding All You Can Eat pancakes.
We are so excited and delighted-finally-to be able to welcome our guests into their new local IHOP, said president of, Romulus Inc. Chris Milisci.
"We have been interested in bringing an IHOP restaurant to State College for some time," said Gary Pierce, franchise business consultant, International House of Pancakes, LLC, who oversees the area for the company. "But we were determined to find a great location-and a great franchisee-to ensure that everything would be up to our high standards. And we've found both. Chris is an expert franchisee who successfully operates 57 IHOP restaurants throughout the country, including locations in Pittsburgh, Greentown and Uniontown. We're delighted he's adding State College to that list."
