Pancakes across America for IHOP
Glendale-based IHOP now has restaurants in all 50 states, a feat reached for the first time in the company’s 50-year history, officials announced this week.
The milestone came after the restaurant company held a grand opening for a store in South Burlington, Vt., according to a news release.
The company’s franchised locations offer a family-style service of breakfast, lunch and dinner options throughout the day.
It has now served more than 17 million pancakes topped with more than 32 million gallons of syrup since it opened.
IHOP, which opened its first store in Toluca Lake in 1958, has almost 1,400 locations across the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Cancer-based nonprofit moves
PADRES Contra El Cancer, a nonprofit that helps low-income children and their families cope with cancer through financial and moral support programs, announced Thursday that it will be moving its office from Los Angeles to Toluca Lake.
The nonprofit helps low-income families coping with cancer-stricken children from throughout the Greater Los Angeles region, including Glendale and Burbank, where fundraisers have been held over the past two years.
Most recently, “Desperate Housewives” star Eva Longoria Parker, national spokeswoman for the nonprofit, accepted a check for $200,000 in March from AT&T; at its store in downtown Burbank.
