IHOP announced today that they have been putting together a roadmap to ensure safety of public as they start to prepare for the next phase of opening of dining rooms again. Here are some of the changes you will see at an IHOP near you when they reopen!
Strict, regimented cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting procedures
Team members wearing face coverings
Reduced guest capacity in waiting areas and dining rooms to adhere to social distancing guidelines
Hand sanitizer bottles or stations available for use upon entrance
Single-use, disposable paper menus
Syrups and condiments available upon request in single-use containers
Ongoing adherence to strict team member health protocols, requiring team members who do not feel well to stay home and seek proper health care
Requirement of team members to undergo wellness checks prior to their shifts
Things will look a little different at IHOP, but Jay Johns, president of IHOP insured that they "will navigate this new normal together in a way that lets everyone safely gather around the booth and pancake together again."
