When I think of going out to eat for breakfast, the first place that comes to mind is IHOP®. Since 1958, IHOP® has been the place where people connect over breakfast, enjoy study breaks, grab a bite before or after sporting events, and so much more. And no matter what menu items they order, there’s one ingredient that’s always constant — a smile. In fact, smiles are so much a part of our culture that they changed their logo to include one.

IHOP® is also a company that also believes in Social Responsibility. They truly value the communities in which they do business. IHOP® supports a number of organizations such as the United Way, Boys and Girls Clubs, Toys for Tots and others through sponsorships, events and fundraisers. But it doesn’t stop there. IHOP® also plays a major role when it comes to our environment, including concern for animals, Green Initiatives, their own packaging, energy consumption, waste and recycling.

Environmental concerns are why, since 2009 IHOP® has been a part of the Sponsor A Highway®program. The IHOP® in Castle Rock, is the latest franchise location to sponsor a segment of Colorado’s highways. It’s just one more way they demonstrate their commitment to the importance of keeping our highways litter free.


For 57 years, the IHOP family restaurant chain has served our world famous pancakes like the iconic favorite Rooty Tooty Fresh ‘N Fruity® and a wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items that are loved by people of all ages — offering an affordable, everyday dining experience with warm and friendly service.

“It’s your breakfast place for a “come-as-you-are” meal like pancakes made just for you. But with the kind of special touches and fun twists you can’t get anywhere else — even at home.”

Here at Adopt A Highway Maintenance Corporation®, we applaud the fine efforts of IHOP® in not only their commitment to Social Responsibility, but giving customers a place to sit down for a nice hot cup of coffee and a delicious, comforting meal. Learn more about how IHOP is committed to making a difference inside our restaurants – and out.
