IHOP pancakes sues IHOP prayer nuts (again) for brand confusion

The International House of

Pancakes (IHOP) is suing the International House of Prayer (also

IHOP) for trademark infringement … again. The Kansas City Business Journal reported that Pancakes is suing in federal court in Kansas City, claiming that

the prayer nuts are causing confusion by using the IHOP acronym and

piggybacking on the

restaurant’s brand.

Last December, Pancakes dropped a similar lawsuit in California against the prayer nuts after entering mediation. Clearly, the outcome didn’t suit Pancakes.
