 (PEORIA, IL – February 26, 2019) – Cullinan Properties, Ltd. is pleased to announce the Original Pancake House will be coming to Grand Prairie Developments. An iconic brand based in Portland, Oregon the restaurant offers authentic national and ethnic pancakes as well as an array of other breakfast foods.

Everything at the Original Pancake House is made from scratch and of the highest food quality, including the homemade batter and sauces. Signature items include the Apple Pancake, a single large pancake smothered with sautéed apples and cinnamon sugar baked to perfection to create a deliciously rich cinnamon sugar glaze and the Dutch Baby, an air filled delight oven baked to golden perfection and served with lemon, whipped butter and powdered sugar to create a mouthwatering blend.

The Grand Prairie restaurant will be locally owned and operated. “The Original Pancake house strives to develop strong roots in the areas they are located, and we are thrilled to be joining the Peoria community,” stated franchise owner Tom Jednorowicz. “Peoria is such a diverse area with so many wonderful amenities and attractions, and we are pleased to bring a distinctive breakfast option to the community.”

“The Original Pancake House will be an excellent and complementary addition to the restaurant mix at Grand Prairie Developments, helping to fill the ‘breakfast void’ in north Peoria,” stated Kathleen Brill, Vice President, Director of Leasing at Cullinan Properties, Ltd.

The new restaurant will be located at Plaza at Grand Prairie, west of Starbucks. The Original Pancake House will break ground this Spring, with a planned opening in October.

The restaurant is currently seeking a local operating partner.

About The Original Pancake House

The Original Pancake House was founded in Portland, Oregon in 1953 by Les Highet and Erma Hueneke. Drawing upon their many years of experience in the culinary field, and their extensive working knowledge of authentic national and ethnic pancake recipes they were able to offer without compromise this unique and original menu which has gained national acclaim. The Original Pancake House is a second and third generation family business, which takes great pride in maintaining the high standards that make our food so outstanding. We now have over one hundred franchises from coast to coast, which have won local and national acclaim. Our recipes demand only the very finest of ingredients, such as 93 score butter, pure 36% whipping cream, fresh grade AA eggs, hard wheat unbleached flour, and our own recipe sourdough starter. Our batters and sauces are made fresh in each restaurant’s kitchen. For more information, visit
