IHOP is giving away free pancakes to celebrate ‘National Pancake Day’


PARSIPPANY — IHOP, 792 Route 46 West, will be giving out free short stack of buttermilk pancakes on Tuesday, March 12 to celebrate National Pancake Day.

This year, the restaurant will “Flip it Forward” and raise money for kids in need. Customers will have the ability to donate to help children battling critical illnesses during the promotion. Guests will be able to get their free pancakes from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Offer valid for dine in only.

Every year IHOP gives away free pancakes around National Pancake Day to celebrate the day. The pancakes are completely free with no purchase required, although a donation to Children’s Miracle Network is encouraged.

When you visit your local IHOP for National Pancake Day at IHOP, you’ll get a free short stack (3) of their famous buttermilk pancakes.

Although not required, you will be asked to give a donation to the Children’s Miracle Network in any amount you’d like in exchange for your pancakes. This money goes to local hospitals in your area and provides life-saving medical treatments and procedures for children in need.

Their 2019 goal is to reach $5 million in donations, and all donations for the pancakes will go straight to the charity.

Some of the restaurants will also be inviting guests to make a donation to get a wall icon of the Children’s Miracle balloon to publicly pledge support to Children’s Miracle Networks. Some of the restaurants will be giving a discount coupon to be used on a future business with the purchase of a wall icon.

The annual IHOP National Pancake Days have been going on for 13 years with more than $30 million being donated to organizations like Children’s Miracle Network, Shriners Hospitals for Children, and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

IHOP is a member of the Parsippany Area Chamber of Commerce.
