Fall football, pancakes, selfies: The Holiday Inn Express® brand and its clever Creative Director, actor/comedian Rob Riggle, know that these are a few of guests’ favorite things. InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG), one of the world’s leading hotel companies, is hitting the road again this month with the latest Pancake Selfie Express mobile breakfast tour to allow fans in the Big Apple, the nation’s capital and beyond to experience the simple genius of a laser-printed selfie on a pancake. During its multi-state tour, the high tech food truck, part of the brand’s latest Stay Smart® campaign, will travel to select Southeastern Conference (SEC) football games this fall to celebrate game day. The brand is also introducing Snoozapalooza, a new promotion that extends both breakfast and check-out time until noon every weekend throughout the fall, so fans can rest and refresh after the big game.
