Burger King, Wendy’s & Other Burger Chains Are Slamming IHOP For Its Rebranding

| Published on June 13, 2018

Brand wars are not a new thing, time to time we see brands mocking each other for adopting something new. IHOP on Monday announced about changing its name to IHOb for promoting the debut of its new burgers. It also revealed that ‘b’ in this new name is for burgers.


This gave a chance to IHOP rivals including including Burger King, Wendy’s and Red Robin, to mock the fast food brand on Twitter for this temporary rebranding. Wendy’s tweeted:
Remember when you were like 7 and thought changing your name?

Twitter users tried to add spices in the conversation:

To which Wendy’s replied:

Red Robbins entered the battle of words and twitted:

Another rival A & W Restaurants shared its thoughts on this rebranding:

This shows how brands these days use social media platforms especially Twitter to make the fun of their competitors to show themselves superior. This indeed helped IHOP’s rebranding as the message was conveyed to a wide audience through the participation of other brands.

“If we have other people in the world of burgers commenting on our burgers, it can only help,” IHOP’s president said in a recent interview.
