IHOb? After 60 years, IHOP hints at forthcoming name change

But what the "b" stands for remains a mystery at this point.

The 60-year-old franchise's coy announcement was made on Twitter on Tuesday. Now, 45 years later, IHOP appears to be heading for another tweak.

Whether it's a joke or a legit name change, people are not happy with this upcoming letter swap. "Now, we're flippin' our name to IHOb. #IHOb", the company posted on its Twitter account. Guesses from followers included "breakfast", "brunch", "bacon", "burritos" and "biscuits", but the restaurant told fans they'd have to wait until June 11 to know for sure.

Twitter users have been responding to the teaser tweet with their guess of what the "b" could stand for.

IHOP is an acronym for International House of Pancakes. This move followed a trend from the year prior, in which Dine Brands Global shut down 23 IHOP restaurants.
