The first IHOP—the dream of founders Al and Jerry Lapin—opened in 1958 in Toluca Lake, California, and was originally dubbed the International House of Pancakes. Since then, rapid expansion has led to myriad milestones across the company's colorful history, from introducing its modern IHOP acronym in 1973 to its 1,000th restaurant opening in Layton, Utah, in 2001. Today, the company stands strong with around 1,500 locations across North and Central America, each one an enthusiastic dispenser of pancakes, french toast, and tables constructed entirely out of bacon. Though IHOP is known as a bastion of breakfast, it also stays open during the day and into the evening, delivering lunch and dinner as well.

What makes your business stand out?
Our Photo Booths are soft sided, and can be set up almost anywhere—upstairs, downstairs, or on ground level. Our equipment is professional and gives our customers high quality, real photo strips.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
I attended my son's wedding and they had a photo booth that everyone really loved. It provided a great time and gave guests memorable photos and great memories that will last them for years to come. I had the equipment and decided western Kansas should have access to something like that.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
In addition to the photo strips they receive at the event, customers are also provided a link to our private gallery where they can view and download their photo strips as well as the full sized photos for 30 days at no charge. Guests must request a link to the private gallery via Facebook or email.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
A toddler loved the photo booth so much he pulled away from his mother and went back inside to take more pictures!
What’s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing the expressions on customers' faces when they see the photos they took with our props.
