A Bahamian entrepreneur says that he has “aggressive” plans to introduce an additional two IHOP restaurants on New Providence by the end of 2023, with the anchor location set to open next week.
Burton Rodgers, the IHOP franchise holder for The Bahamas and the Caribbean, told Eyewitness News that 120 jobs have been created through the introduction of the first IHOP restaurant in the region, while adding: “My goal is to make sure it’s done right.”
“Training is happening right now. Most of the staff is hired. We are confident that all of the executive team has done a great job and will be ready to go on Tuesday. I think everyone has done an unbelievable job to get to this point,” Rodgers remarked.
“I’m just really proud of them and all the time and effort they have given over the past year to get to this point. Everyone should be ready and I’m just happy for them and happy to provide a product that Bahamians have fallen in love with over the past years going in and out of the United States and hopefully we deliver a great product.”
