Glendale, Calif. — Dine Brands International plans to open its first IHOP® in Nassau, The Bahamas, in late 2022 through an agreement with Bahamas Limited, which also calls for 16 IHOP restaurant openings in the Caribbean over the next few years.
“We are excited to bring IHOP to the English-speaking Caribbean islands. We’ve seen success in Puerto Rico and believe guests in this new market are sure to fall in love with the brand’s world-famous pancakes and familiar comfort foods,” says William Urrego, regional vice president of franchise operations, Dine Brands Global, Inc.
Adds franchisee Burton Rodgers (pictured above): “We can’t wait to introduce IHOP to The Bahamas. The brand’s relaxed atmosphere and family-friendly fare will be a welcomed addition as locals look for a place to gather at all hours. This will be the first of many locations to come and we look forward to providing gainful career opportunities to members of these communities.”
