GLENDALE, CALIF. — Dine Brands Global, Inc. is planning to open four new IHOP restaurants in Qatar, launching the first location at the Gulf Mall in Doha in a few months.

The new restaurants were established through a franchising agreement with Mohamed Makawi, president of Eagles Landing Restaurants LLC. Mr. Makawi also launched IHOP’s first location in the United Arab Emirates.

“This partnership follows the tremendous success of our IHOP opening in Cairo, one of 10 new international IHOP locations opened this year, and our recently announced partnership in the western Kingdom of Saudi Arabia,” said Tony Moralejo, president of international and global development at Dine.

Qatar is IHOP’s fourth Middle Eastern market and signifies the company’s continued international expansion.
