The Intergalactic House of Pancakes was a centuries-old corporate conglomerate at the time of the Old Republic. Mandalorian-owned and based on Mandalore, it was long renowned for its delicious fifteen credit buffets and simply scrumptious scrambled eggs. Formalized in its charter was a clause mandating each successive Mandalore serve on its board of directors as corporate executive officer and president, providing a steady income for Mandalores throughout the Galaxy. To sate Mandalorians at large clauses were also included granting annual stipends derived from corporate profits to each and every Mandalorian. During the Galactic Empire, IHOP was forcibly incorporated from its nominally Old Republic authorized union into the Imperial Security Bureau. After the Empire's collapse it regained autonomy and resumed mercantile warfare with its age-old rival, Kuati Fried Chicken.
