From pancakes to patties: IHOP now the International House of Burgers

The name change was announced last week, but the company did not announce what the new name stands for until this morning. IHOb now stands for International House of Burgers, a tweet from the company confirmed Monday.

Burger King has changed it's name to Pancake King after IHOP reveals it's now IHOB.

Today, the 60-year-old chain announced the news on Twitter. It's a move to highlight the restaurant's lunch and dinner offerings, in addition to its well-known pancakes and breakfast menu, which are still being sold. And we imagine IHOP will be realizing before long what the people really want from its kitchen. The implementation of the logo has already been seen on the restaurants in-store menu's.

The pancake chain has been coy about whether the name flip is permanent, saying Monday that it was "for the time being". "The vast majority of people were having fun with the name change and were trying to solve the riddle".

Rafael Nadal beats Dominic Thiem for his 11th French Open title
In some ways, Nadal's opponent on Sunday - 24-year-old Dominic Thiem from Austria - fit the bill as the giant-killer. Thiem, who is the only man to beat Nadal on clay over the past two seasons, appeared for his first Grand Slam final.

But, of course, other restaurant chains had some thoughts to share on the whole "IHOb" announcement.

Reaction to the name change on social media ranges from excitement and anticipation to confused and baffled.

For those of you who don't like change, not to worry.

The temporary change celebrates the debut of the brand's new 'Ultimate Steakburgers, ' a line-up of seven new burgers. "Like that, but our cheeseburgers are still better".
