Much to the delight of football fans nationwide, it’s Bowl season again, and this year local IHOP® restaurants are getting in the game and adding a little pancake pandemonium to the football frenzy. Beginning today and continuing through January 26, participating IHOP restaurants in the Knoxville, TN area are challenging guests to get off the sidelines and get in the game, with a chance to participate in a Bowl of their own: The Pancake Bowl.
With the return of “All You Can Eat Pancakes” at IHOP restaurants nationwide, participating IHOP restaurants are inviting pancake lovers to join in a good old-fashioned pancake eating contest, and giving them a chance to win a spot in their inaugural Pancake Bowl on February 1.
Guests can enter the competition at their local participating IHOP restaurants by ordering “All You Can Eat Pancakes” and enjoying as many buttermilk pancakes as they can to earn a spot on the leader board. The leader board will be updated daily and at the end of the competition, the top-scoring pancake eater at each restaurant will receive bragging rights--and free pancakes for one year! (defined as one free full stack (4) of any same-flavored pancakes from the IHOP menu per week for one year).
On February 1, the top 10 pancake eaters in the Knoxville, TN area will compete in the Pancake Bowl and the winner will receive a $500 IHOP gift card.
“All You Can Eat Pancakes” are available nationwide from January 2 through February 9, 2014. The pancakes can be ordered as part of IHOP restaurant’s delicious combos featuring eggs any style, crispy hash browns, and a choice of pork sausage links, crisp bacon or ham — all with a plate of two delicious signature buttermilk pancakes, or they can be ordered as a stack of five buttermilk pancakes as a main course. But either way, when those pancakes are gone, guests can get an additional serving of two pancakes. And they’ll keep on coming as long as the guest can keep eating them!
