Dine Brands Global Inc. is a publicly traded food and beverage company based in Glendale, California. Founded in 1958 as IHOP, it operates franchised and corporate owned full-service restaurants including two restaurant concepts, Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar and International House of Pancakes (IHOP).


Established in 2007, DINE was founded when IHOP purchased Applebee's restaurant chain for approximately $2.1 billion.[3] IHOP announced it would franchise most of Applebee's 500 company-owned locations, and undertake a plan to revitalize the chain's brand and concept.[4]

As of December 31, 2019, Dine Brands had 3,628 restaurants including 1,787 Applebee's and 1,841 IHOP restaurants, including 69 Applebee's that are company owned, 161 IHOP restaurants that are owned by area licensees and 3,398 franchised restaurants including 1,718 Applebee's and 1,680 IHOP restaurants.[1][5]
