Wendy’s is trolling IHOP on Twitter after the pancake house made a decision to become the International House of Burgers.
IHOP changed its name to IHOb this week as the company aims to advertise for its new selection of burgers – a shift for the sit-down chain known for its breakfasts.
Some people correctly predicted it would stand for burgers, but many others on Twitter and Facebook thought the B would stand for breakfast or bacon.
The “P” will now flip to a lowercase ‘b.’ Last week, the well-known restaurant chain suggested it would change is name.
“Dear Internet, we abbreciate your batience”.
The International House of Pancakes is going in a different business direction that may upset some die hard fans of the chain restaurant. Starting at $6.99, folks can get one of their new burgers with a drink and endless fries. Others had more fun, speculating that the B stood for bitcoin or break dancing.
Whatabuger also had a great response saying: “As much as we love our pancakes, we’d never change our name to Whatapancake”.
It’s not yet clear when or if IHOP will change the signs at its restaurants, such as this one in Hialeah, Fla.
“The change, in fact, celebrates the debut of the brand’s new Ultimate Steakburgers”, the company said in a press release about the seven new all-natural burger varieties. Options included biscuits, bacon, butternut squash or barnacles.
“Burgers so burgerin’ good, we changed our name to IHOb”.
“Burger places are already a packed market and as a self proclaimed burger expert I question this decision”, the wrestler adds.
