Guests can choose from a lineup of seven different Hand-Crafted Melts – featuring craveable flavors and quality ingredients such as 100% Black Angus steak and all-natural roasted turkey.
The new Hand-Crafted Melts include a range of ingredients, such as signature sweet and tangy IHOP Sauce and cheese-crusted bread, bringing together familiar and comforting flavors to each bite. The new sandwich offerings feature crispy grilled bread, served warm, with high-quality, natural proteins and melted cheese. The Hand-Crafted Melts menu is IHOP’s most recent example of its ongoing commitment to continue to innovate and meet guests’ needs of more convenient and portable options that can be enjoyed at home, on-the-go, or underneath IHOP’s iconic blue roof, all at a great value.
“The introduction of our new Hand-Crafted Melts menu, featuring delicious and versatile sandwiches to enjoy with friends and family at your local IHOP, on-the-go, or at home, is a part of our ongoing commitment to our lunch and dinner menu” said Kieran Donahue, Chief Marketing Officer, IHOP. “Additionally, we are continuing to look for ways to provide delicious, craveable dining options to guests at home, reflected in great success in our off-premise sales, which is currently more than 25% of our total business. With off-premise menu options being a key component in our innovation strategy, Melts are the perfect addition to the portable, convenient, and diverse lineup of afternoon and evening daypart offerings to our core menu.”
