You'll receive instructions for how to book through Yelp on October 24. And while you're at it, enter the Tiny IHOP sweepstakes for a chance to win a two-night, three-day trip to LA and guaranteed reservation.
"Our friends at A&E’s 'Tiny House Nation' outdid themselves on this project, creating the world’s first International Tiny House of Pancakes -- blue roof and all -- so that we can offer an intimate dining experience to a select group of our super fans," Chief Marketing Officer Brad Haley said in a statement. "Turning a 4,000-plus square foot restaurant into a 170 square foot space certainly poses its own set of challenges, but the team came up with an ingenious design to retain the integrity of a full-sized IHOP while adding new, fun elements for guests to discover in the Tiny IHOP."
You can catch 60-second previews of the construction during upcoming episodes of Tiny House Nation. The first premiered October 12 and two more will air October 17 at 8pm and October 19 at 9am.
"It was an absolute blast to work on this very special and unique Tiny IHOP project,” series co-host John Weisbarth added. "Both Zack and I grew up loving IHOP, so when we had the opportunity to recreate a tiny version of the iconic restaurant, we jumped right in. We feel that the Tiny IHOP really encapsulates both the design and spirit of IHOP restaurants across the country, so we’re especially excited for guests to walk in and experience the magic of tiny dining."
