However, it's currently unclear if you'll be able to order IHOP's Bacon & Egg Breakfast alongside, say, a Shrimp 'N Parmesan Sirloin from Applebee's at the same time, as the restaurant's menu is currently under development, according to the report. But then again, wouldn't such a surreal dining experience be the main appeal? Who wouldn't want to snack on a plate of boneless buffalo wings and a side of hash browns after a long day at work? Should that be a reality, they'll probably make a fortune.
While an IHOP/Applebee's hybrid might sound weird, it actually makes sense, business-wise, considering IHOP bought Applebee's and formed a California-based parent company called DineEquity back in 2007. With any luck, the experimental Detroit location will be just the first of many the company unleashes in the future.
