Does IHOP Cater? Is IHOP Breakfast Catering Available?

IHOP locations do not typically offer catering services, customer service representatives said. However, since IHOP restaurants are individually owned and operated, services may vary by location. To find out about available catering services, we contacted IHOPs in multiple states,  including Arizona, Florida, New York, Ohio, and Texas. None of the locations we contacted offer catering.

You can, however, place an order online or over the phone for pickup at your nearest IHOP. To-go orders can be picked up immediately or scheduled for pickup later in the day; delivery is not available. IHOP employees said there is no size limit on online orders, but, if you’re ordering for a large party, you might want to call ahead to make sure the restaurant can accommodate your order within your desired time frame. Orders can be paid for online or when you pick up your food.
