IHOP to build third location in Huber Heights

IHOP has plans to build a restaurant in Huber Heights at 7609 Old Troy Pike, according to city documents

IHOP officials told the Dayton Daily News in May 2015 that it had plans to re-enter the Dayton regional with 10 breakfast restaurants over the next five years.

Huber Height’s planning commission will vote today on the company plans for a lot in the Waynetowne Plaza.

The restaurant has opened its first location in the 2400 block of North Fairfield Road in Beavercreek and two weeks ago announced plans for a site in Springfield. The Beavercreek restaurant is located in the front of and just south of a Target store. The 5,000-square-foot store seats about 182 and employs about 70.

PDG Inc., the development firm for local IHOP restaurants, works closely with IHOP and its franchise groups to identify sites and build restaurants, which PDG then leases to IHOP franchise owners. Texas-based TM Ventures, which operates a dozen IHOP restaurants in Texas and New Mexico, is the franchise operator for the Dayton-area markets.

The Dayton area had IHOP locations in the 1970s and 1980s, including one near Ohio 725 and Ohio 741 near the Dayton Mall and one on Shiloh Springs Road near the former Salem Mall, but those restaurants closed about 25 years ago. The closest IHOPs to Dayton are in West Chester, Mason and Richmond, Ind. When Prestige Development first announced the Beavercreek store in February, company officials said seven local stores were planned.
