iPop is the only pancake, strudel, wheat-producing restaurant in Antarctica, where its restaurants serve in the style of an all-you-could-eat buffet. Notoriously (albeit mistakenly) paired with the Str00del Force, iPop was started by the Great Pancake Maker in 1996, and commenced operations only in 1998. Currently, it serves Polaris, USA, Freezeland, Dorkugal, Frankterre, UnitedTerra and MAI.

The new motto for iPop is All for pancakes, pancakes for all!. The old motto was P....PPP.ANCAKES!!!

Background[edit]

Supposedly, during the Great Starvation/Famine in one of the colonies in Colonial Antarctica, a great pancake maker, whose name was never known, created a small pancake restaurant currently located in Polaris to help lower the famine. It did not officially commence operations until 1998, when it registered itself in the Freedom Fighters' Register of Businesses, in support of the Revolutionaries and the Club.

After the formation of Club Penguin in 2005, the Great Pancake Maker wanted to open a second stall there, but rules imposed by the government, EBUL and other benefactresses to the island prevented their cause. Through the Str00del Force, under the alias "Str0udel Distr1butors Inc.", they managed to unwillingly export pancakes illegally to CP. However, the government does not oppose this to this day.

Eventually, a second store was set up in South Pole City, and then in Frostborough, Dorkugal, Frankterre, UnitedTerra and MAI. Plans to set up shop in Poshia were shelved after the Great Pancake Maker got himself involved and specifically advised the Board to refrain from doing so at all costs. Preps took insult at this and denounced iPop, although the higher classes often smuggle them into the country.

The unexposed and secretive identity of the Great Pancake Maker never came to light, but much photos have popped up, although the figure in all of them differ greatly in shape, size and race.

Notes
1 There has been no record of this name ever being registered, nor has it been confirmed by any other sources.

The Great Pancake Maker (May 21, 1960 (1960-05-21) (age 59) - )is synonymous with iPop and it's cult following. He founded iPop and raised it like his own child. Practically unseen to the public eye, he resides in the manager's office of the main branch at Polaris, where he was born and raised. Many penguins have come forward to provide information on the mysterious fellow, but no other evidence corroborates theirs, only heightening the mystery.

The only confirmed information is a press release stating that the 21st of May 2010 was his 50th birthday.

Operations[edit]

iPop's internal operations loosely, but still resembles that of a presidential republic, where the executive head (that being Great Pancake Maker) has limited control and power over his company. Rather, iPop is ruled by "The Board", an equally mysterious motley group of twelve penguins who all share the common love for business and pancakes. He does however appoint the Board members.

The decisions are not made by the board, either. Rather, suggestions from the Str00del Force will be processed through The Board, but could be viewed by the Great Pancake Maker. Suggestions from the public are often welcomed but they only make 10% of the approved suggestions. The Board would then pass the suggestion down to be rectified and improved by the Bureau of Logic, which all passes through the first two departments (Department of Rectification and Department of Improvement) and onto its respective department.

From there, the suggestion would be processed by other Departments and put through a trial at the Polaris branch.

The class system goes as follows:
