The company didn't say what the "B" stands for.

But in a few days the famous pancake change could potentially be changing its name with the flip of just one letter.

"For 60 pancakin' years, we've been IHOP". Find out what it could b on 6.11.18. Guesses from followers included "breakfast", "brunch", "bacon", "burritos" and "biscuits", but the restaurant told fans they'd have to wait until June 11 to know for sure. However, the company wouldn't confirm this obvious choice. The name was officially shortened to "IHOP" in 1973.

IHOP's Twitter account is all abuzz with guesses about what the "b" may be.

According to the restaurants website, IHOP traces its roots back to the opening of the first International House of Pancakes restaurant in 1958 in Toluca Lake, Calif.

Per a USA Today report, the name change comes at a time when other changes are happening with the restaurant chain.
