The International House of Pancakes (IHOP), a United States-based restaurant chain, reported Tuesday the increase of shares by $1.12 to $51.42 in afternoon trading, following previous rising by 6 percent.

IHOP Corp. has more than 1,353 restaurants in 49 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Canada and Mexico. Most of these locations are franchises; some are corporate-owned and some are operated under area licenses.
