US-based full service dining company Dine Brands International has opened a new International House of Pancakes (IHOP) restaurant in Lima, Peru.

The opening is the result of an agreement between Dine Brands International and Franchisee Percapitals SAC.

As per the agreement, 25 new IHOP locations will be opened over the next eight years with the new outlet in Peru being the 62nd restaurant in the Latin America region.

The deal is expected to create around 600 jobs.

Dine Brands Global CEO Steve Joyce said: “South America is an important growth market for Dine Brands and we’ve seen great success there so far this year.”

Earlier this year, Dine Brands opened three restaurants in Ecuador debuting and expanding in South America.
