IHOP Coming to State College

It’s a day of big restaurant announcements in State College — first Quaker Steak & Lube and now IHOP set to open in the State College area. The popular breakfast restaurant will open at the old Perkins location at 1661 S. Atherton St. where a sign saying “Coming Soon” designed like the IHOP logo has been present for the last few months.

The Centre Daily Times confirmed the new IHOP location with the company’s media contact representative Craig Hoffman today, who called the area a “good market.” The restaurant currently has over 1,500 locations in the United States.

“There has been a lot of interest in the location,” building owner Mick Trombley said to the CDT.  “The owners wanted to have a restaurant that served the adjacent hotel and also fit well in that portion of town. They believe that this has been achieved and that the restaurant will do well.”

The new IHOP will be next to the Courtyard Marriott Hotel near Home Delivery Pizza.
