It might be known as the International House of Pancakes, but IHOP Hawaii locations are a step above the rest.

“We seamlessly give service with aloha because it is so deeply ingrained in the culture,” says director of marketing Debra Espino.

Recently, in fact, that aloha spirit was on full display when a couple of guests went out of their way to applaud the service they received.

“(They) demanded my attention be directed to one of our servers, Essence, an amazing woman I consider my own ‘auntie,’ who had made their meal with us so warm, intimate and personal — and that she deserves a raise,” says Espino with a laugh.

“It’s the people here that make IHOP Hawaii stand out,” she continues. “Our crew is nothing less than magical.”
