IHOP Waitress Asks Black Teens To Pay Upfront

(Auburn, ME)  –  An IHOP in Auburn, Maine was closed yesterday so the staff there could be trained about avoiding discrimination.  This, after a waitress at the restaurant asked a group of black teenagers to pay up front for their meal.

Company president Darren Rebelez says IHOP has zero tolerance for discrimination of any type.  He says the company is working to apologize to the customers directly and is taking disciplinary action against the employee.
