Mystery solved: IHOb reveals what name change means

Many took to social media to guess what the new name could be and most assumed the "b" would stand for 'breakfast.' They were wrong.

IHOP changed its name to IHOb this week as the company aims to advertise for its new selection of burgers - a shift for the sit-down chain known for its breakfasts.

For the past week, fans of the restaurant wondered what the mysterious letter b represented.

With the 8:30 a.m. announcement, Twitter let out a collective "What?!"

The change is actually to celebrate the restaurant's new line of burgers.

Other burger options include a barbecue sauce smothered Cowboy BBQ burger; the mushroom and Swiss; the Classic, your basic hamburger; the Classic with Bacon; and the Mega Monster, which is two steakburger patties, two types of cheeses, lettuce, red onion, pickles, tomato, and IHOb's signature burger sauce. The pancake house is now selling what it calls "Ultimate Steakburgers" - a menu item so monumental, it seems, that it warranted a name change "for the time being", the company said in a statement. The seven burgers are listed as "limited time offers".

Burgers was a popular one.

The company is part of Dine Brands Global, the same company that owns the Applebee's chain.

An IHOP restaurant serves customers on August 10, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.

On Monday, IHOb President Darren Rebelez made the big reveal: the name now means International House of Burgers.
