What does this have to do with the Indiana Chamber or helping you operate your business more successfully? Absolutely nothing.
But it’s pancakes, there are some interesting facts to report — and it’s for a very good cause.
Today is National Pancake Day. For the seventh consecutive year, IHOP restaurants across the country (between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.) will offer guests a free short stack of buttermilk pancakes. Guests are invited to make a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.
Now, the fun flapjack facts:
- IHOP served four million free pancakes on National Pancake Day 2011 and pancake lovers donated more than $2.5 million to children’s charities, exceeding the fundraising goal of $2.3 million.
- All of the free pancakes served on National Pancake Day 2011 would create a stack nearly 16 miles high.
- Since the inception of National Pancake Day in 2006, IHOP has raised nearly $8 million and given away more than 14 million pancakes to support charities in the communities in which it operates.
- National Pancake Day 2011 was IHOP’s largest one-day event in the company’s 53-year history.
Good work, IHOP and all those who contribute to help those in need.
