When the announcement from IHOP came saying that they were changing their name to IHOB, people were confused. They have been IHOP since 1958, so changing their name now did not make any sense. It is something along the lines of, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." IHOP kept people on their feet wondering what the "B" in IHOB would stand for. Since they are a breakfast place, famous for their pancakes, most people assumed they were changing their name to International House of Breakfast. That is the only thing that makes sense, but they fooled us all when they announced that they will be now known as International House of Burgers. What? People were thrown back and not really happy with the new name. The internet has blown up with other burger joints and people alike trolling the brand for their ridiculous name change.
