A new chain restaurant is coming to Willow Lawn Shopping Center.
IHOP, the iconic pancake house that specializes in breakfast foods, has signed a lease with Federal Realty Investment Trust for 4,094 square feet of space located within the Willow Lawn Shopping Center at 1601 Willow Lawn Drive between Alpha Comics and European Wax.
“It is with great pleasure we announce IHOP will be opening at Willow Lawn later this year,” said Deirdre Johnson, Vice President of Asset Management for Federal Realty Investment Trust, in a release. “With such a diverse menu selection that expands beyond breakfast, IHOP will have tremendous appeal to our Willow Lawn customers. Whether someone is needing to fuel up with a healthy grilled chicken salad after a rigorous workout at one of our fitness studios or a family is looking for an affordable brunch, IHOP is able to accommodate, with dine-in, outdoor dining and to-go options.”
IHOP will hire for 60 new positions. The dining room will provide seating for 150 customers inside and 32 on an outside patio and will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every day. They may also consider opening 24 hours a day on Friday and Saturday based on market demand.
“We are very excited to open an IHOP at this location in Willow Lawn,” said Sunil Shrestha, owner and operator of the franchise at Willow Lawn. “We’ve been targeting the area for some time. The central location and space [are] perfect for us.”
