GLENDALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, IHOP® Restaurants unveiled a never-before-seen food innovation, the Pancizza™, a combination of America’s two most favorite round foods – pancakes and pizza -- in one delicious dish. Pronounced Pan-keet-za, the limited-time menu item was created by IHOP to commemorate National Pizza Day this Saturday. For one day only, IHOP will take over the legendary New York City pizzeria, Bleecker Street Pizza, and set up a Pancizzeria Shop. Open on Saturday, February 9 from 11am-11pm, visitors to the IHOP Pancizzeria can get a FREE slice of Pancizza in a variety of exclusive pop-up shop flavors.*
For those who prefer to eat on their couch, IHOP has partnered with DoorDash to exclusively offer delivery of 7” Pancizzas in select restaurants in the Chicago, Dallas, New York City, and Los Angeles areas from February 8-10 for $0 delivery fee for first-time DoorDash users with the code PANCIZZA.** These individual-sized Pancizzas are available in three flavors – Original Buttermilk, Bacon and Cheddar, and Cupcake – for only $4.99 and each comes with a variety of signature IHOP syrups. To view participating IHOP Pancizza locations, go to IHOP.com; to place an order download the IHOP mobile app, visit DoorDash.com or the DoorDash mobile app. Additionally, guests across the country can get a $0 delivery fee on any IHOP ‘N GO order of $10 or more placed through DoorDash from February 8-14, 2019 by using the code IHOPDELIVERY.***
“IHOP has a lot of milestones to celebrate with our delivery program and our largest delivery partner, DoorDash, so what better way to do that than to join in on the National Pizza Day fun with our very own pancake-pizza creation: Pancizza,” said Brad Haley, Chief Marketing Officer, IHOP. “After all, pizza was one of the first and still the biggest ‘circle in a box’ take-out and delivery items in America so, naturally, we thought that we could do our very own IHOP, pancakeified version. Our chefs even came up with three tasty Pancizza flavors: the OG Buttermilk, the sweet Cupcake, and, my personal favorite, the Bacon and Cheddar Pancizza. It’s got just the right amount of sweetness from the pancake ‘dough’ to complement the savory bacon and cheddar toppings. While the Pancizzas are only available in select IHOP locations, our guests can place an order for their favorite menu items at any IHOP restaurant serviced by DoorDash and the delivery fee will be waived for an entire week.”
To support the campaign, a short social film that pays tribute to the best, classic pizza commercials was created. Guests who want to flaunt their love of pancakes and pizza can also purchase a limited edition Pancizza t-shirt from the PancakeWear Collection at the IHOP Pancizzeria in NYC on Saturday or online at shoppancakewear.com starting today.
The Pancizza activation, created in collaboration with the brand’s creative agency, Droga5, also marks another milestone for IHOP as it recently surpassed 1,000 IHOP restaurants available for online ordering and delivery through DoorDash. IHOP announced its national delivery partnership with DoorDash in mid-2018, a first for the brand and part of its 60th anniversary celebration. The number of participating IHOP restaurants available on DoorDash has tripled in just 6 months.
“Our national partnership with DoorDash has been instrumental in helping us grow our IHOP ‘N GO online ordering business,” continued Haley. “As a leading online ordering and delivery provider, they have the reach and trusted reputation to get more pancakes to our guests, wherever and whenever that ‘pancraving’ hits. And, this weekend only, our guests in New York City, Dallas, Chicago and Los Angeles can get an exclusive taste of Pancizza thanks to DoorDash.”
“We pride ourselves in partnering with the best restaurants in the country to create unique, memorable delivery offerings for our customers,” said Christopher Payne, Chief Operating Officer at DoorDash. “We’re thrilled to announce this limited-edition Pancizza with IHOP to take breakfast in bed – or any time of day -- to the next level.”
