IHOP franchisee Mohamad Touffaha is working on a couple of new restaurants, though these next two are outside of Wichita.

Touffaha’s Wichita IHOPs are on North Rock Road and East Kellogg.

He’s now working on opening an IHOP in Liberal, which will be next to the Applebee’s.

Touffaha also is going to open a Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen in Garden City across from Wal-Mart.

“This is the first one for me.”

He says he can’t open any Popeyes restaurants in Wichita because he doesn’t have the franchise rights here.

Touffaha, who owns six IHOPs, is working on one more franchise deal but can’t share details just yet. Look for more information soon.
