IHOP coming to Garrett County

September 8th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

The Cumberland Times News reports an  IHOP express restaurant is slated to open next spring at 2815 Chestnut Ridge Road, across from the Pilot Flying J travel center near Interstate 68. This according to Jim Torrington, director of the Garrett County Department of Permits and Inspection Services.

“An 11,000 square foot building will be constructed and half of it will be a convenience store with a Little Cesars and, in January, the other half will be bid out for an IHOP,” said Torrington. “It will add jobs and will service a lot of the traveling public. There is a lot of truck traffic there.”

Fuel City, which was previously located at the site, was recently demolished. Atlantis Petroleum, LLC sold the property last year for $1.6 million to Bruceton Farm Service, Inc. of Morgantown, W.Va., according to Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation records.

“They are just waiting on a National Pollution Discharge Elimination System permit for MDE (Maryland Department of the Environment) to begin construction of the shell,” said Torrington. “There will be fuel islands not only for automobiles but also for tractor-trailers.”

Commercial Builders, Inc of Morgantown will construct the building.

IHOP restaurants are franchised and operated by Glendale, California-based International House of Pancakes, LLC and its affiliates, according to the IHOP website. International House of Pancakes, LLC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DineEquity, Inc.
