IHOP Coming to Northglenn Marketplace

Scheduled for November opening.

The city of Northglenn is pleased to announce that the International House of Pancakes (IHOP) restaurant has signed a long term lease in the Northglenn Marketplace at 221 W. 104th Avenue. Moving into the former location of Armadillo Restaurant, which will close in June, IHOP plans to make an initial $1.1 million investment in new equipment and renovations to the interior and exterior of the building. New features at the IHOP will include a coffee bar with specialty coffees and outside patio seating. The Northglenn IHOP will open in November 2016.

In addition, the new restaurant will employ 90 people, creating new jobs in the city. “We are thrilled to have IHOP join us in Northglenn,” said Mayor Joyce Downing. “They will be a wonderful and positive addition to the Marketplace. We extend a big welcome to them!”

IHOP has more than 1,600 stores throughout the nation, and 40 internationally. There are approximately 41 restaurants in Denver. Tayseer Zuaiter, the franchise owner for the Northglenn restaurant, currently operates six stores, with five in the metro area and one in the state of Alabama. The local restaurants are in Greenwood Village, Westminster, Highlands Ranch, Denver, and Lakewood.

A franchisee operator with IHOP since 1991, and an IHOP franchisee since 1996. Zuaiter has achieved many awards, and has kept his “A” franchisor status. In 2015, four of his Colorado locations achieved the status of being in the “top 30 stores in the world.” Of which three of his stores were in the “top 20,” and one was ranked “3rd in the world.” Zuaiter states, “I'm very happy to the successful conclusion of agreements with the Northglenn Marketplace and the city of Northglenn that paved the way for construction to begin on a state-of-the-art IHOP restaurant. We are looking forward to calling Northglenn home and serving our guests award-winning pancakes!”

Zuaiter commends the City of Northglenn for its approach to economic development and extends his praise to include Northglenn Economic Development Manager Debbie Tuttle, CEcD, saying, “Debbie knows the development business.
