We have started a house of prayer in our city and have named it “International House of Prayer [Our City]”; should we refer to ourselves as “IHOP” or “IHOP [Our City]”?

IHOP is a registered trademark of IHOP IP, LLC, the parent company of International House of Pancakes. As such, IHOPKC urges other houses of prayer against any unauthorized use of “IHOP” or any geographic variation thereof, i.e., an abbreviation for a city, state, region, country, or other geographic area added to “IHOP,” such as IHOPNY or IHOP [OurCity].
