IHOP Corp. executives reported an 11.2% drop in third-quarter net income Tuesday and said its financial performance in the fourth quarter is expected to be below previous expectations. Officials at the Glendale-based pancake chain cited the continued effect of company-store openings; related timing of sales of franchises; recent weakness in company-store sales growth; and continued uncertainty with regard to the consumer-spending environment. "While we remain on track to add 80 to 90 IHOP-developed stores to the IHOP system this year, the timing of franchising those new restaurants has lagged -- particularly in new markets where we do not always have the benefit of an existing franchisee base to build upon," IHOP CEO Julia A. Stewart released in a statement.
