There’s been some discussion on ColumbusUnderground for the past three years about IHOPs returning to Columbus, after they closed down and moved out in the early 80′s. Their former buildings with their steeply-sloped roofs are easy to spot. (Hint: can you find the one north of OSU’s campus?) Maybe now we’re a couple steps closer to it actually happening? The Lantern just ran a story interviewing the franchise owner for Columbus rights for IHOPs, some OSU students, Nick Pedro of Hang Over Easy, and yours truly! Not that I’m terribly excited for more corporate breakfast spots in Columbus (stay away, Denny’s!), but I’m just curious to follow the development of breakfast in my city!
