(KTLA) – In honor of National Pancake Day, which falls on February 28 this year, IHOP will be giving out a free short stack of its famous buttermilk pancakes.
Free pancakes will be available to dine-in customers only between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at participating restaurants, IHOP said in a press release. Customers are limited to one free short stack of three buttermilk pancakes.
The IHOP on 5012 N Big Hollow Rd. in Peoria confirmed that it is participating.
IHOP’s loyalty members will also receive twice the amount of “PanCoins” on any additional menu items purchased. The “PanCoin” is a “crypto pancake,” according to the restaurant’s website.
Three coins can be traded for a short stack of three pancakes or other items. Every $5 spent at IHOP earns a customer one “PanCoin.”
This is the 17th National Pancake Day celebrated by IHOP. Since the first in 2006, IHOP and its guests have raised more than $30 million for children’s hospitals nationwide.
IHOP wasn’t able to host the holiday special in 2021 because of the COVID pandemic and instead offered customers IOUs for a free short stack.
The free short stack of pancakes promotion is also a part of the restaurant’s 65th anniversary, a news release said.
