  • IHOP reveals what IHOB will stand for

After spending a few days teeing up its eventual name change from IHOP to IHOB, the company announced Monday that its menu will now feature burgers - an announcement that didn't faze Wendy's, an actual burger restaurant, in the slightest.

It's only a marketing campaign.

Earlier this week, IHOP took to Twitter to announce they're officially changing their name to IHOb.

Wendy's is trolling IHOP on Twitter after the pancake house made a decision to become the International House of Burgers.

"The big opportunity for the IHOb brand is to develop our lunch and dinner business". The change is not permanent, a company spokeswoman said, but rather is a move to promote its new burger line.

"We are definitely going to be IHOP", Darren Rebelez, president of IHOP, told CNNMoney.

Ghana not voting for 2026 WC host
China is widely expected to bid to host a future World Cup, and is planning to build 70,000 soccer pitches by 2020. All three hosts should get automatic places in the lineup, and each host a game on opening day.

And Red Robin, which doesn't have a breakfast menu, teased: "We're as serious about pancakes as IHOb is about burgers".

An IHOP in Hollywood is getting new IHOb signs, and some others might get the treatment.

IHOb tweeted the announcement in a video shortly after 8 a.m.

But Rebelez said the vast majority of the almost 1,800 other locations will still go by IHOP.

Social media is getting in on the fun including Utah's Cache County Sheriff's Office with a "STOb" tweet.

Fans were quick to urge Wendy's to throw some more shade, and the PR team was up to the task.

The North Korean leader's concerns that spies might seek to investigate his bodily waste might have some historical precedent. US President Donald Trump arrived at the venue just 60 seconds before the summit was to begin.

Rebelez isn't anxious that people will be disappointed.

Williams said he has had several people call to ask whether the name would be changed, but overall the rollout has been, "so far so good". But most fans figured out it was just a way to get people talking.

In addition to transforming into IHOb on Twitter, the chain changed its name and signage at its flagship location to celebrate the Ultimate Steakburgers. For burgers. Go ahead, burger one today.

DineEquity, the company that owns IHOP/IHOb and also the Applebee's chain, sought to assure customers that nothing had really changed.

With that being said, they have "breakfast" burgers, as well.

"Why is ihop going thru a mid life crisis", tweeted another.
