Restaurants You Didn’t Know Changed Their Name

IHOP confused thousands of people when it suddenly changed a single letter in its name. A new burger menu prompted the acronym IHOb and attempted to shift the restaurant’s focus away from their signature pancake dishes. But while their campaign spread faster as a result of social media, they’re far from the first restaurant to rebrand.

    IHOP faked its name change to IHOb to promote its burgers. Do your research so you don’t embarrass yourselves.

    3:20 Pizza is not usually associated with New York. It’s associated with Italy because that’s where it’s from.

    SAMBO’s, also known as "Little Black Sambo’s" coffee shop, with decor depicting a dark skinned child and a tiger had over 1,100 locations in the USA in the 1970’s. Beaten down by several law suits based on obvious racial overtones, the chain changed it’s name to "The Jolly Tiger" with decor featuring a light skinned child and a tiger. That didn’t work out too well and by the 1980s the company was changing the name of its coffee shops again to "No Place Like Sam’s". Eventually, the operation completely collapsed with only one location remaining today in Santa Barbara, CA back under the original name Sambo’s.

    I remember when Boston Market first opened a store in Boston but there was another roasted chicken place in Brookline only a few miles away that opened a year earlier called La Roastisarea which was basically the same but their chicken was much much better. Juicier and tastier. The sauce they used was out of this world. Don’t know if they are still there. I moved back to NY 18 years ago and after that I started seeing Boston Market popup all over the place but never heard anything about La Roatisarea. Their side dishes were better too. Wish there was one of them here. I do have Boston Market around to corner but not the same.

    I think it likely that Papa John will be next in order to distance the chain from the founder who can’t keep his foot out of his mouth.

    IHob would’ve made more sense if they changed it years ago since they don’t only serve pancakes but at this point, it’s a joke. I will always call it IHOP.

    actually, chick fa la invented the chicken sandwich when delta started serving chicken and the chicken was too big for the containers on the plane. So they cut the extra chicken off and was about to through them away when someone said I know this family restaurant nearby maybe they would want it and the chicken sandwich was born.

    And there are 7!!! Subways in our little city area of Cypress/Buena Park/ La Palma that are about 8miles is circumference within our humble towns. That’s way too many, because we have another two dozen places in just our little area that sells good sandwiches so Subway gets overlooked especially when they don’t have the 5 dollar deal.
