JOPLIN, MO.--- IHop is back in its original location near 20th and Range Line. Managers say the new facility has more kitchen space with newer equipment and an expanded dining room that can seat 50 more customers. Before the facility opened to the public, staff members trained by serving free meals to tornado victims in the area. Employees say they are happy with the response they have gotten from the community after only a few days of being open.
"It feels fantastic. The guest have been beating down the doors to get in while we were training, and now we are open and they are ready for us, and we are ready for them,"states Vincent Freeman, IHop Manager.
IHop is located at 2117 South Range Line and is open 24 hours a day.
