This year, we are once again elated to take part in IHOP’s arguably most popular and clearly most impactful tradition,” said Archie Rodriguez, CEO of Global Restaurant Concepts Inc., IHOP restaurant franchisee in the Philippines. “With every single IHOP restaurant in the Philippines participating in our 2nd National Pancake Day, we are looking to raise a total of P600,000 this year for the Kythe Foundation to aid, in our own small way, in improving the quality of life and alleviating the condition of our children battling pediatric cancer.”
