IHOP Hosts Ribbon Cutting, Wednesday
by: Bobby McDonald
It was a meal of pancakes for all of those that gathered to welcome IHOP to the Sulphur Springs business community, as they hosted their official ribbon cutting, on Wednesday morning, at 9:00 a.m. Following the ribbon cutting, IHOP invited the guests in for breakfast and told them about the company. The Sulphur Springs IHOP is the 63rd store in the chain, that now has 65 stores nationwide. "This is the first store that we've been allowed to decorate the store with pictures of the community and we hope that everyone feels like this is their IHOP," expressed Regional Director, Sunsha Parker, as she welcomed guests. "We want to be a vital part of the community and want to be the place you come for small corporate meetings, birthday parties, business meetings, and any other occasion."
Sulphur Springs store manager, Kendra Conatser, told the group that she had already become involved in the community with planning a pancake eating contest between the firemen and the policemen to promote the Blue Santa Program, and that they would be celebrating "National Pancake Day" in February, with an invite for Dairy Festival Queen, Molly Millsap, and Cover Girl Chelsey Crouch, to be a part of the celebration.
"We invite everyone to come out, enjoy great food, and see the many things that we can offer the community, as we partner in this adventure together," expressed Conatser. "We want to serve you our customers and be known for our involvement in the community!"
