“When we launched our new Ultimate Steakburgers last year, what better
way to show the world that we take our burgers as seriously as we take
our pancakes than by announcing that we’d be changing our name to IHOb …
In addition to referring to their new burgers as “Pancakes,” IHOP is taking things a step further by creating a digital experience that aims to get reluctant burger-lovers onboard with their new approach.
“There were over 3.3 million tweets about #IHOb last year, and some of them weren’t very nice,” Haley added. “So, our lead creative agency, Droga5, created a digital experience to engage last year’s naysayers and convert haters into eaters. Those who tweeted something, shall we say, unkind last year may find that they’re on The Bancake List, an aggregated list of Twitter users who tweeted at IHOP to stay in its lane. Fortunately, there is a way to get off The Bancake List – all they have to do is tweet something nice about IHOP’s Pancakes/Burgers, and they’ll be removed from the list. To make it even easier, we’re providing very funny options people can choose from if they don’t want to create their own and, best of all, they could even be rewarded with a token of the brand’s appreciation. Users can visit BancakeList.com to find out whether they or their friends are on The Bancake List, and how to get off of it. Of course, we’ll also be engaging many of those guests who were instant fans of our Steakburgers last year.”
The new Steakburger line-up joins IHOP’s original burger flavors, including The Classic, The Classic with Bacon, Mega Monster, Cowboy BBQ, The Big Brunch and Jalapeno Kick. Pancakes – the meaty kind or the fluffy kind -- are both best enjoyed with IHOP’s new House-Made Milkshakes. Recently introduced at all IHOP restaurants, House-Made Milkshakes are made with hand-scooped, premium, natural vanilla ice cream, with real milk and whipped topping, and are available in five craveable flavors: HERSHEY’s Chocolate, Strawberry, OREO® Cookie, Cold-Brew Coffee and Vanilla.
Guests can visit IHOP.com to find their nearest IHOP restaurant and learn more about the new lineup of all-natural, 100% USDA choice Black Angus ‘Pancakes’ and to see if they are on The Bancake List.
