Meanwhile, employees of the Dayton-area IHOP restaurants were told Tuesday morning that the restaurants would be reopening in perhaps a month, although they were given no target date for a return to work.
The Huber Heights and Beavercreek locations closed the same day as Springfield’s. Previously, IHOP spokeswoman Stephanie Peterson said in a statement the owner of the restaurants could no longer operate them.
The restaurant chain is exploring options to get the padlocked restaurants reopened, Peterson said last week.

Officials with the Huber Heights and Beavercreek IHOP restaurants set aside rooms in nearby Panera Bread Cafes Tuesday morning for employees to pick up paychecks and ask questions. This news outlet spoke with multiple employees who said they were told the restaurants would reopen, and they were offered hours at IHOP locations in northern Cincinnati during the shutdown of their Dayton-area stores.
Several employees said they had interviews lined up, or in some cases had already landed jobs, at other restaurants.
IHOP officials did not respond to an email request for comment Wednesday.
