Your new career is waiting – at IHOP

Jay Johns

Welcome! I hope your visit to [email protected] is the first step in a fulfilling career at IHOP. Restaurants are America's largest private employer and have launched millions of successful careers – and IHOP is at the forefront of this dynamic industry. Whether your desire is to work in a restaurant or to assist our franchisees through a position at our Restaurant Support Center, IHOP holds great opportunities for you.

IHOP is an American icon and for more than 61 years, we have been considered America's dining room. One of the keys to our success is that most of our restaurants are franchised. If your interest is in a restaurant position, you'll want to contact one of the independent business owners of these locations in the area you are seeking employment. If you wish to support our franchisees on a national level, opportunities exist in Operations, Marketing, Development, Training, Human Resources, Communications and Legal at our Restaurant Support Center in Glendale, California or in one of our field support positions.

Regardless of the type of position you are seeking with IHOP, please take a moment to review and understand our Vision and Values. We have found that team members who embrace and support these have the greatest opportunity for success at IHOP. I hope you will choose to explore all that we have to offer and elect to become part of the great team that makes IHOP not only #1 in family dining, but #1 in the hearts of guests across the country.
