Restaurant Transitions: IHOP at Markham and University, Capers, Tacos 4 Life opening soon

posted: 02/23/2017 5:45 a.m. Discuss

The target reopening date for the IHOP, West Markham Street and University Avenue, Little Rock, is April 3. You will recall that Golden Cakes Inc., which manages 10 of the 15 Arkansas IHOPs, is rebuilding the place from the ground up; the new place will have a "contemporary look, reflective of the warm and inviting atmosphere characteristic of IHOP restaurants nationwide," according to a corporate marketing statement; "special design touches include whimsical 'bubble' screens, porcelain wood-like tile flooring and the beloved banquette seating associated with the brand since first opening in 1958." Part of the building has a distinctly visible second story, which Susan North, franchisee/partner/owner, says will be an employee-only space, not a party room or overflow seating.
