Glendale, California--International House of Pancakes Inc. expressed confidence that it can complete an ambitious development schedule that calls for at least 56 new restaurants in the second half of the year. Delays in the timing of new restaurant openings and sales of stores to franchisees caused second-quarter results to fall significantly below Wall Street expectations, but the company remains optimistic that its goal of opening 80 to 90 new restaurants this year could be met. -Dow Jones

Denver--Quizno's is looking to expand in Phoenix and is faced with a saturated real estate market. The sandwich franchise currently has 23 locations in the Phoenix area with 70 more in the planning stages, according to the company.
