The established restaurateur is giving back to the community with her “Breakfast for Dinner” events December 2022

It's very important for us as local entrepreneurs to know the depth of the issues and challenges facing the communities we do business in. I hope to inspire some young girl in this room to know that she, too, can impact her community.

Adenah Bayoh, the owner of several successful restaurants in Newark, Irvington, and Paterson, NJ, is shutting them down for one week this December to give back to the community she serves. The week-long "Breakfast for Dinner" giveback will take place December 12 -16, 2022, from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM.

Bayoh will be utilizing her various IHOP locations in Northern NJ to give back to the community that she does business in. Alongside her team and community partners, Bayoh will provide attendees with hot meals, including pancakes, french toast, bacon, sausage, eggs, and hot chocolate. Donated gift items such as books and toys will also be included for the women and their children attending. For her Broad Street location, Bayoh has partnered with reentry programs to support formerly incarcerated mothers that are getting acclimated with their children. She is excited to be able to give back to her community in this way and hopes that it will help bring people together and brighten up their holiday season.

“Giving back is important to me because I was once a child that was given a hot meal when I was in need. I think it's very important for us as local entrepreneurs to know the depth of the issues and challenges facing the communities we do business in. I hope I can inspire some young girl in this room to know that she too can have an impact in her community” - Adenah Bayoh

The event will also include a host of notable guest speakers, and the event schedule will be as follows:

  • IHOP Irvington - Monday, December 12th, 2022 (1212 Springfield Avenue)
  • IHOP Bergen St. - Wednesday, December 14, 2022 (109 Bergen Street, Newark)
  • IHOP Paterson - Thursday, December 15, 2022 (301 Main Street)
  • IHOP Broad St. - Friday, December 16, 2022 (915 Broad Street, Newark)
