Original Pancake House’s History
Erma Hueneke and Les Highet were living in Portland, OR in 1953 when they decided to open their restaurant, the Original Pancake House. They began their venture by setting out to collect pancake recipes from all over the world and promoting their restaurants growth rapidly. Quick to become a favorite of their locals, they saw an opportunity to expand their restaurant and started franchising their name until the business spanned the United States, with an Original Pancake House being found in over half of the continental United States.
Recognized by food critics and passionate lovers of pancakes alike, the Original Pancake House stands as one of the greatest places to enjoy breakfast in the United States, and soon the world. 2013 saw the company begin to expand its placement into International waters with an OPH being established in Tokyo and Japan.
