"It feels great. It's like you're ready for it every year, the staff gets excited, customers get excited, we're just ready to go," said Heather Strohl, General Manager, IHOP. "It's the one thing a year we do to help out."
To handle National Pancake Day, the IHOP on the Parkway was at full staff ready to turn more than 500 pounds of batter into pancakes. The Vestal location expected to give out at 1,500 pancakes.
