Dine Brands’ is looking to expand its IHOP presence in the Middle East by opening four new locations in Qatar, the first of which will be in the capital city, Doha.

It was earlier this year that plans to open five new locations in Saudi Arabia were announced, which were in addition to locations in Egypt and the UAE.

“We are excited to open our first location in Doha and to continue expanding IHOP in the Middle East,” said Mohamed Makawi, CEO of Eagles Landing International Restaurants, an IHOP Franchisee. “The brand’s casual atmosphere, beautifully designed interior and exterior, and the family-friendly fare will be a welcomed addition to the community and a space for guests of all ages to come together and enjoy IHOP’s wide variety of breakfast, lunch and dinner items.”
